Draft League Spotlight: Ian Murphy

Jared Carrier
New York Scouting Director

Player: Ian Murphy
Position: RHP
School: St. John's

Ian Murphy has been a piece of the St. John’s rotation since the New Jersey native showed up on campus as a freshman in 2019. Murphy can run it up to 96 multiple times throughout the night, but he mostly lives around 93 with some life. The changeup is a plus offering and is more on the power side; mid 80's while generating considerable movement. His breaking ball projects to be a fringe pitch at the next level with spin more akin to a slider but with the shape of a slurve. So far in 2021 has struck out 20.2% of batters faced while holding the opposition to a .217 AVG over 4 starts.
