In the meantime, Triple-A infielder Dilson Herrera has been promoted to start at second base.
"We're very fortunate Murph would move, a lot of players would say, 'Screw you,'" Sandy Alderson said.
Meanwhile, Wilmer Flores will remain at shortstop, as Eric Campbell will move back to being a bench player.
In regards to Flores, both Sandy Alderson and Collins reiterated the team's patience for their young shortstop.
"We know he can catch the ball," Alderson added. "The important thing is he knows we have confidence in him."
