    • Murphy was sent to Arizona in exchange for left-hander Gabriel Moya on Thursday. Murphy heads to Triple-A Reno, while Yasmany Tomas gets transferred to the 60-day DL (groin) in order to make room for the catcher on the 40-man roster. During 59 games with Triple-A Rochester this season, Murphy slashed .222/.298/.330 with four home runs and 27 RBI. The 26-year-old had a rough season with Minnesota in 2016, going just 12-for-82 from the plate in 26 games. He will provide organizational depth for Arizona at the catcher's position as the team gears up for a playoff run in the coming months.

    • Twins' John Ryan Murphy: Bouncing back at Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Murphy is hitting .232/.306/.446 with three home runs in 18 games for Triple-A Rochester. While Murphy's hitting stats may not be overly impressive, they mark a bounceback after last year's miserable season. Murphy won the major-league backup role at the start of 2016, 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. If he can continue to hit the way he has so far this season at Triple-A, he'll likely get another shot in the majors at some point.
