Athletics' Sean Murphy: Snaps out of funk Sunday
Murphy went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs in a loss to the Twins on Sunday.
The struggling backstop put an end to a brief 0-for-9 slump with the help of his first extra-base hit since April 29. Murphy's season average and on-base percentage stand at a lackluster .212 and .275, respectively, but he has a somewhat respectable .434 slugging percentage thanks to nine of his 13 hits thus far going for extra bases....

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Connects on three-run shot
Murphy went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in a 9-8 loss to Cleveland on Friday.
Murphy took Cleveland starter Aaron Civale deep to center in the first inning but remained quiet in his other four at-bats. Despite the long ball, Murphy has been mired in a 3-for-24 skid over his last six games with his overall .218/.262/.487 slash line being propped up by 12 of 17 hits going for extra bases....

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Knocks two-run homer in win
Murphy went 3-of-4 with a home run, a double and three RBI in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Orioles.
Murphy not only turned in a great day at the plate, he was instrumental on defense in a questionable call that led to the ejection of Trey Mancini and Baltimore manager Brandon Hyde. Backing up the throw to first, Murphy tagged Mancini out after he ran past first base and allegedly made a move toward second, leading the catcher to smartly tag him out. Murphy has exceeded expectations early this season but had settled into a bit of an offensive slump in the series with Baltimore, going 0-for-10 leading into Thursday's game.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sean Murphy: Laces two-bagger in win
Murphy went 1-for-4 with a double in a win over the Orioles on Monday.
Murphy's two-bagger was already his ninth extra-base hit of the season, particularly noteworthy considering he has just 11 hits overall. The steady stream of hard contact has helped lead to an impressive .558 slugging percentage for Murphy over his first 47 plate appearances, while his current .256 average is a 40-point improvement on his .216 figure from 2021....

The backstop took Hyun Jin Ryu (forearm) deep in the third inning, giving the A's a 5-1 lead they nearly squandered. Murphy is on a tear, going 7-for-19 (.368) over the last four games with three doubles, two homers and six RBI.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sean Murphy: Blasts first homer of campaign
Murphy went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Rays.
Murphy entered the contest with just two hits in his first 21 at-bats of the season, but he matched that hit total in the productive performance Wednesday. The backstop's third-inning three-run homer provided all the scoring Oakland needed to grab its third win of the campaign. Murphy's four hits this season have included one single, one double, one triple and one long ball.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sean Murphy: Rips triple in rout
Murphy went 1-for-4 with an RBI fielder's choice, a triple, a hit-by-pitch and a run in a win over the Rays on Monday.
Murphy has followed up an impressive spring at the plate with just two hits in his first 18 plate appearances; however, both knocks have gone for extra bases, as the backstop also laced a double Opening Day against the Phillies. The 27-year-old has also struck out on six occasions, however, whiffing at least once in each of the Athletics' first four games.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sean Murphy: Two-bagger in opener
Murphy went 1-for-4 with a double and a run in a loss to the Phillies on Friday.
Murphy was virtually unstoppable during Cactus League play with a .433 average, and he got the regular season off to a positive start with his two-bagger off Aaron Nola, the only non-home-run extra-base hit for the Athletics on the afternoon. The 27-year-old racked up career highs in home runs (17) and RBI (59) in 2021, but his .216 average and .306 on-base percentage left ample room for improvement.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sean Murphy: Raking at plate in spring
Murphy, who went 1-for-2 with a double in a Cactus League loss to the Mariners on Sunday, is hitting .545 (6-for-11) with four doubles, a home run, four RBI, a walk and two runs in his first five exhibition appearances.
The 27-year-old backstop's numbers underscore how blistering hot he's been to start spring, certainly an encouraging sign after Murphy's lackluster .216/.306/.405 slash line in 2021. While he did record a career-high 17 home runs and 59 RBI last season, Murphy's early showing this spring offers some hope he'll be able to get on base more consistently in 2022 while hopefully ceding only occasional playing time to the returning Stephen Vogt....

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Cranks 17th homer
Murphy went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against the Mariners.
Murphy has lost considerable playing time in the last month, with Yan Gomes taking over as the team's primary catcher. However, he started both Wednesday and Thursday's contests, collecting three hits in seven at-bats. He delivered his 17th home run of the season Thursday, and he now has three home runs across his last 13 starts. Despite his recent display of power it's been a disappointing season for Murphy, as he's managed only a .217/.306/.413 line across 431 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
