Latest Update Murphy collects four hits in Mets win Fri Sep, 19, 11:35 PM
Blessed with a nice line-drive swing, he can pile up doubles and hit for a good average. Will hit for some power and doesn't strike out too much, either. Runs pretty well and can play several positions in the field.
Flaws: : Is only average with the glove, anywhere on the field. Also lacks optimum power and has a tendency to be streaky at the dish. Must continue to work on the mental aspects of the game, and not let errors bother him.
With this game, Murphy's batting average is up to .299. He will not contribute a ton in the counting categories, but he is one of the safest players in fantasy.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Murphy broke out of an 0-for-11 slump with two hits and an RBI in today's loss. Murphy's average sits at .296 and he bumped his RBI total to 54 on the year. Murphy has been a great play at second base for fantasy owners, and should continue to be started as long as he is healthy.Analyst: Colby Conway
For those who have been excited about his return from the DL, his bruised wrist will not hold him back for now, so get him in your lineup again. Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Murphy was removed from Thursday's game in the eighth inning after being hit by a pitch. X-rays came back negative and he was diagnosed with a bruise. He'll take a seat Friday to get some rest while Eric Campbell handles the work at third base.Analyst: Howard Bender
