      Mariners' Tom Murphy: Goes deep Friday

      Mariners' Tom Murphy: Breaks extended slump

      Tom Murphy, who went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a run in a loss to the Red Sox on Sunday, was 0-for-17 with a walk and two runs over the previous six games.The veteran backstop's season slash sits at an anemic .128/.171/.231 across 41 plate appearances heading into Monday night's series opener against the Astros. Murphy has just two total extra-base hits when factoring in Sunday's double as well, but his 41.7 percent hard hit rate and atypically low .174 BABIP imply the hits could start falling more often as the season unfolds. The saving grace for Murphy and his fantasy managers at the moment is that platoon mate Luis Torrens isn't offering much more with his bat, posting a .176/.236/.216 line in his own right across 55 PAs.

      Mariners' Tom Murphy: Being outpaced by Torrens

      Tom Murphy, who went 0-for-5 in a win over the Twins on Sunday, is now sporting a .188 average that pales in comparison to platoon mate Luis Torrens' .333 figure.Murphy and Torrens -- the latter filling the designated hitter spot -- were actually both in the lineup Sunday, marking the second time they've both made appearances in the same game thus far. While Torrens delivered his second multi-hit effort in three games, Murphy generated his third hitless performance in five 2021 contests. It's early and the sample size is small, but the disparity between the two position mates is at least worth keeping an eye on with respect to how playing time between them behind the dish may be affected as the season unfolds.
