    Daniel Murphy: Announces retirement

    Daniel Murphy announced his retirement from baseball Friday, Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports.Murphy closed the books on a 12-year major-league career spent with the Mets, Nationals, Cubs and Rockies. His lasting legacy may be his role at the forefront of the flyball revolution that changed hitters' approaches around the league, transforming him from a low-power contact hitter into someone who hit .347/.390/.595 with 25 homers at his peak in 2016. He'll retire with 138 homers, 1,572 hits and a .296 average. While he never managed to win a World Series, he did earn gold with Team USA at the 2017 World Baseball Classic and earned an NLCS MVP with the pennant-winning Mets in 2015.

    Daniel Murphy: Bought out by Colorado

    Daniel Murphy became a free agent Wednesday after the Rockies declined his $12 million team option for 2020.Murphy will receive a $6 million buyout, meaning the contract he signed with Colorado after the 2018 season was effectively a two-year, $30 million deal. As the Rockies' decision to decline the 2021 option suggests, Murphy failed to meet expectations during his time in Colorado, providing a .269/.316/.426 slash line (77 wRC+) over 610 plate appearances. Since he's viewed primarily as a first baseman at this stage in his career and is set to turn 36 years old in April, Murphy might have to settle for a minor-league deal this winter if he wants to continue playing.

    Daniel Murphy remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.Out of the lineup versus a right-handed pitcher (Mike Fiers) for the fourth time in five games, Murphy appears to have moved into a full-time reserve role for the Colorado Rockies. The 35-year-old is slashing a lowly .239/.280/.342 on the season, a batting line rendered even more disappointing given the fact that he's had the benefit of playing at Coors Field. Josh Fuentes is now the Rockies' top option at first base.
