In the 60-yard dash, his time was 7.87. On the mound, he uses a slow windup and a short arm action. His fastball has good arm side run; his changeup showed depth.

He located his curveball for a strike at 67-70 mph.

6/02/19

Murphy was impressive in a 4-3 win over the ProPlayer Canes. Over four innings pitched in relief, Murphy surrendered just one run while striking out three, and earned the victory for the Elite. He has a premium, proportional 6-foot-4 frame with some athleticism. His fastball sat 76-78 mph, featuring some late arm-side run. His curveball was typically 66-69 mph off an 11/5 plane and showed above-average lateral movement. Murphy starred back on day one in a four-inning relief appearance, and showed more of the same in the title game.
