As one of the highest UB baseball players drafted in the modern era (or ever). Im really interested to see how far Murphy can go.
We have had a handful of guys toil around in A and AA the last couple years. But murphy projects even higher with the bat.
He signed the max for his draft spot. Something around 450k.
Hes played 9 games with Single A Tri City http://www.milb.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?sid=milb&t=p_pbp&pid=608596
9 Games, .385 1HR 10RBI 1SB
A player of his calibr should smack around A ball pitching. Hopefully he can climb the minor league ladder quickly this year and progress well next year.
