Twins' John Ryan Murphy: Competing for backup catcher role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy will compete with Chris Gimenez and Mitch Garver for the backup catcher job behind Jason Castro, ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities reports.

Murphy won the backup role last year in spring training but then went 3-for-40 at the plate and was quickly demoted to Triple-A Rochester. He didn't fare much better in the minors as he hit just three home runs with a .609 OPS. He'll get a fresh start this spring, but he's likely behind Gimenez with Garver being a long shot.

Twins' John Ryan Murphy: Gets start and homers Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Murphy started at catcher and went 3-for-4 with a home run in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

Murphy struggled in the majors earlier in the year before he was recalled from Triple-A on Saturday. If he shows any spark at the plate, he should get significant playing time the final few weeks as the team assesses him for 2017.

Twins' John Ryan Murphy: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

On the heels of a .277/.327/.406 showing in 67 games with the Yankees last season, Murphy had some buzz as a sleeper at the catcher position coming into 2016. However, he got off to a dismal 3-for-40 start and was quickly demoted to Rochester, where he remained until Saturday. The overall numbers with Rochester don't look good but Murphy did finish strong, and with Kurt Suzuki set to become a free agent after the season, the Twins may be inclined to give Murphy three or four starts per week down the stretch.

Twins' John Ryan Murphy: Heating up at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is hitting .351/.422/.568 with a home run in 12 games in June for Triple-A Rochester. He's hitting .225/.303/314 overall at Triple-A.

Murphy began his season in the majors in a terrible slump as he was just 3-for-40 before being demoted. He equally struggled by hitting just .154 at Triple-A in May. However, he's shown life at the plate lately and he could be back in the majors as Minnesota's backup catcher before too long.

Twins' John Ryan Murphy: Goes hitless during Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 0-for-4 against Durham on Sunday.

Murphy is just 8-for-45 during his time with Triple-A Rochester this season, but those numbers are still an improvement over his 3-for-40 mark with the Twins to start the season. After being sent down on May 6, Murphy has collected seven RBI with Rochester and holds a .450 OPS throughout the 13 games he has played. The 25-year-old will probably rejoin the big league club at some point this season, but beginning to hit the ball will expedite that process.
