Diamondbacks' John Ryan Murphy: Collects first two hits
Murphy went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles Saturday against the Cubs.
The singles were the first two hits of the spring for Murphy, who is 2-for-16 (.125) over six games. He currently sits third on the depth chart and might be the player that loses a roster spot if the Diamondbacks keep just two catchers, per Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. The addition of outfielder Adam Jones creates a roster decision that can be made easier by letting one of three catchers go. The Diamondbacks have used three catchers the last two seasons, a distribution of responsibilities they believed eased the burdens of the position. Murphy is out of options and would be exposed to waivers.
