Daniel Murphy: Announces retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Daniel Murphy: Transitioning to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Rockies' Daniel Murphy: Sits for third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy remains on the bench for the third straight game Friday against the Angels.

Murphy appears to be losing playing time after hitting .250/.286/.357 through 34 games, numbers which would look quite poor even if he didn't get to play half his games in Coors Field. Josh Fuentes will be the first baseman in his absence.

Rockies' Daniel Murphy: Sitting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Giants, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Murphy hits the bench even with a righty (Logan Webb) starting for the Giants. The veteran is hitting just .265/.303/.382 this season, so it's no surprise that the Rockies are turning to younger alternatives at first base. Josh Fuentes gets the nod Wednesday.

Rockies' Daniel Murphy: Sitting out series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Murphy often sits against left-handed starting pitchers, but his absence from the lineup Wednesday can be explained by the Rockies and Diamondbacks wrapping up their series with a day game after a night game. Ryan McMahon will step in at first base for the 35-year-old veteran, who is batting .358 with three home runs and 13 RBI over 56 plate appearances on the season.

Rockies' Daniel Murphy: Belts another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two more RBI during Friday's win against Seattle.

Murphy swatted at the first pitch he saw from Yohan Ramirez in the eighth inning and claimed his second long ball in as many games via a two-run shot. He also looped a two-run single in the sixth. The 35-year-old now has three homers on the season with 10 RBI and five runs scored.
