Murray (back) was activated from the disabled list at Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. Murray opened the minor-league season on the disabled list while he recovered from a back injury that he suffered late in spring training. He will work in middle relief for the IronPigs.
Murray (back) is on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He left a game in late March with a lower-back injury, and is obviously not yet ready to return to game action. Murray will provide organizational bullpen depth once healthy.
Murray left Tuesday's spring training game with what appeared to be a lower-back injury, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports. It was a tough day for Murray, who was also told he would not earn a roster spot with the Phillies. He will join the bullpen at Triple-A Lehigh Valley once healthy.
Murray was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday. He was subpar in 23 innings with the big club earlier this season, posting a 4.30 ERA and 18:9 K:BB in 23 innings. However, he will get the September call-up to eat some low-leverage innings out of the bullpen down the stretch.
Murray was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley following Thursday's game, Ryan Lawrence of The Philly Voice reports. The Phillies' bullpen has been overworked over the past few days due to a number of blowout losses, so the organization optioned Murray back to Triple-A with the intention of recalling a fresh arm. Murray pitched for the third consecutive night Thursday, working two scoreless innings after starter Aaron Nola was tagged for six earned runs in just 3.0 innings. The Phillies will recall a bullpen arm Friday to take Murray's spot on the active roster.
