The two way prospect Murphy certainly opened a lot of eyes with his natural raw abilities. Murphy stands an athletic 6-foot-1, 205-pounds and possesses tremendous arm strength behind the plate, as he fired pop times of 1.75, 1.81 and 1.94. Off the mound, Murphy impressed with a live arm and fastball sitting 84-86 mph, topping at 87 mph, with good arm side run. His breaking ball (69-71 mph) had hard 12-to-6 break, and was thrown consistently for a strike. At the plate, Murphy has big power potential. Though still raw, he is extremely strong and has plus bat speed. No doubt Murphy is one of the premier prospects in the Class of 2013.
