  • Giants' Tom Murphy: Moved to 60-day IL

    The Giants transferred Murphy (knee) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Murphy was given a 4-to-6-week recovery timeline when he landed on the injured list May 5 due to a sprained left knee. However, his move to the 60-day IL will make him ineligible to return until July 4. The Giants signed Curt Casali on Wednesday to fill Murphy's spot on the 40-man roster and provide emergency catcher depth with Patrick Bailey (concussion) also out.

  • Giants' Tom Murphy: Out 4-to-6 weeks

    Giants manager Bob Melvin said Monday that Murphy is expected to be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks after being diagnosed with a left knee sprain, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Murphy suffered the injury during Saturday's game versus the Phillies and landed on the 10-day injured list Sunday. With Patrick Bailey (concussion) on the 7-day IL at least for the next few days, the Giants are down to Blake Sabol and Jakson Reetz as their catching duo.

  • Giants' Tom Murphy: Evaluated for left knee injury

    Murphy is being evaluated for a left knee injury after exiting Saturday's game versus the Phillies, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Murphy tweaked the knee as he tracked down a wild pitch in the second inning in rainy conditions in Philadelphia. He's the second Giants catcher to go down in a day's time, as Patrick Bailey was just placed on the 7-day concussion injured list, though the extent of Murphy's injury remains uncertain. Blake Sabol took over for Murphy on Saturday.

  • Giants' Tom Murphy: Exits with apparent knee injury

    Murphy was removed from Saturday's game versus the Phillies in the second inning with an apparent knee injury, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Murphy seemed to tweak his knee as he chased down a wild pitch. The Giants already put Patrick Bailey on the 7-day concussion injured list earlier Saturday and may now have lost another catcher. Blake Sabol, who was recalled to replace Bailey on the roster, took over behind the dish for Murphy on Saturday.

  • Giants' Tom Murphy: Getting MRI on knee Sunday

    Murphy (knee) will undergo an MRI on Sunday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Murphy said he felt a pop in his left knee while trying to block a wild pitch in Saturday's loss to the Phillies. It's an injury that forced him from the game and Murphy admitted after the contest that his concern level is high. With Patrick Bailey (concussion) also sidelined, the Giants are down to one healthy catcher on their 40-man roster in Blake Sabol.

  • Giants' Tom Murphy: Swats first homer

    Murphy went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Wednesday in a loss to the Red Sox.

    Murphy put the Giants on the board with a 407-foot solo blast in the third inning, but the team ended up scoring just once more in the contest. The long ball was the first of the season for the backstop, who has struggled to a paltry .100/.206/.233 slash line through 35 plate appearances. Murphy is firmly behind Patrick Bailey on San Francisco's catcher depth chart.

  • Giants' Tom Murphy: Fills in for resting Patrick Bailey

    Murphy will start at catcher and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Nationals, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Though he was able to beat out Joey Bart for the Giants' No. 2 catcher job before Bart was dealt to Pittsburgh earlier this month, Murphy has seen limited action behind No. 1 backstop Patrick Bailey. With Bailey getting a breather in the day game after a night game, Murphy will draw his fourth start through the Giants' first 13 games.

  • Giants' Tom Murphy: In battle for backup catcher role

    Murphy has gone 2-for-7 with a double and three strikeouts over his first three Cactus League games.

    Murphy was signed in the offseason to back up Patrick Bailey at catcher. Murphy has played no more than 97 games in a season in his major-league career. He's often hit well in a backup role, but Joey Bart (3-for-9) and Blake Sabol (1-for-8) are also options to fill that spot to begin 2024. More clarity should be available once the Giants trim down their spring roster, though it appears Murphy's experience is favored to win out over Bart, who could be waived or traded if he doesn't earn a roster spot.

  • Giants' Tom Murphy: Heads to San Francisco

    Murphy agreed to a two-year, $13 million contract with the Giants on Monday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Murphy has struggled to stay healthy over the last two seasons, appearing in only 61 total games during this stretch with Seattle. He'll look for a fresh start in San Francisco, where he's in line to serve as the backup catcher behind Patrick Bailey. The righty-hitting Murphy has a career .292/.361/.508 slash line against lefties and will likely be in the lineup whenever the Giants face a southpaw.

  • Mariners' Tom Murphy: Set for imaging Friday

    Murphy is slated to have imaging performed on his injured thumb Friday in order to determine whether he's ready to return to baseball activities, the team's official site reports.

    Murphy suffered a thumb sprain in mid-August but subsequently suffered a small fracture in the thumb in early September, and he's been shut down altogether since Sept. 11. Friday's evaluation should give the Mariners a clearer picture of whether he'll return before the end of the regular season. Murphy's been a key contributor in 2023 with an .873 OPS across 158 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Tom Murphy: Nursing small fracture in thumb

    Murphy has been diagnosed with a small fracture in his left thumb and has been shut down for the last 10 days. He'll be re-evaluated Sept. 22, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    Murphy was initially placed on the 10-day injured list Aug. 16 due to a thumb sprain, and this setback will cost him additional time. Despite this bad news, the team is still optimistic that Murphy could return to play before the regular season comes to a close if he gains clearance Sept. 22 and can ramp up activities without suffering any setbacks, per Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times.

  • Mariners' Tom Murphy: Goes on IL with thumb spain

    Seattle placed Murphy on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left thumb sprain.

    The injury comes with awful timing for Murphy, who has been playing more regularly in recent weeks and boasts a .355/.393/.697 batting line over his last 24 games (85 plate appearances) dating back to June 12. Brian O'Keefe was called up from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move to back up Cal Raleigh at catcher.

  • Mariners' Tom Murphy: Adds three more hits

    Murphy went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Wednesday's victory over the Red Sox.

    Murphy has been red hot for the past week, going 10-for-22 (.455) with a pair of homers in his last six games. The 32-year-old backstop now has a 1.294 OPS since June 23 (17 games). Murphy's hot stretch has earned him a larger share of the workload behind the plate, with Cal Raleigh seeing more time at DH. Overall, Murphy's slash line is up to .300/.340/.577 with eight homers, 17 runs scored and 16 RBI across 141 plate appearances this season.
