Sean Murphy’s swelling goes down; how to watch Gwinnett Stripers

This is a screenshot from Google Maps of the building at 110 Mitchell St. in South Downtown.

On Wednesday, you couldn’t even tell anything had happened. The swelling had decreased accordingly.

Murphy’s first X-rays, taken Tuesday evening, were negative. And at this point, it doesn’t look like he needed an MRI.

On Tuesday night, Murphy likened the condition to a hematoma — or a severe bruise that occurs when an injury causes blood to pool under the skin. Murphy wore a huge scarf after this happened. It probably looked worse on TV than anything else.

And in the outfield before Wednesday’s game, Murphy appeared to play a role, perhaps just to see how he felt. After a few minutes, he returned to the dugout and entered the clubhouse.

It appears the Braves have avoided the worst-case scenario with Murphy.

Travis d’Arnaud was in the lineup on Wednesday, but it wouldn’t be shocking to see Murphy return in the coming days.

Gwinnett Stripers on local TV

On Wednesday, the Triple-A Gwinnett Stripers announced their partnership with Gray Television to live stream select games on Peachtree Sports Network for this season. The station will broadcast 13 Stripers home games.

Dave Lezotte and Jack Johnson – the Stripers’ play-by-play duo – will run the games. Lezotte is in his 12th season with the club and his fourth as a radio and television voice. Johnson, the broadcast wizard, is in his second season as the No. 2 broadcaster.
