Rockies' Daniel Murphy: Day off versus southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is not in the lineup Sunday against the Mariners.

Murphy started the first two games of the series against lefties and went 5-for-9 with a home run and five RBI, but he'll receive a breather in the series finale with lefty Justus Sheffield pitching for Seattle. Ryan McMahon will move to first base Sunday while Garrett Hampson starts at the keystone.

Rockies' Daniel Murphy: Remains primary first baseman
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy has looked improved defensively at first base during spring and summer training and is expected to be the primary starter there in 2020, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

The implementation of the universal designated hitter for the shortened season should be a benefit for the 35-year-old, but manager Bud Black indicated the team's best lineup is with Murphy in the field. Still, the veteran slugger will see some time as the DH this season to help keep him fresh, especially with the limited off days. Starting second baseman Ryan McMahon likely will slide over to first base in those instances, while Garrett Hampson, Brendan Rodgers and Chris Owings split time at the keystone.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy had a .292/.370/.333 slash line with one double through nine Cactus League games before spring training was suspended.

The 34-year-old had an underwhelming .279/.328/.452 slash line with 13 home runs in 132 games during his first season with Colorado in 2019. Murphy is poised to again start at first base for the Rockies once play resumes this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

Even with the Rockies opposing a right-handed starting pitcher (Adrian Houser) in the series finale, the lefty-hitting Murphy will take a seat as manager Bud Black looks to evaluate younger options. Unless he's used off the bench, Murphy will wrap up his first campaign in Colorado with a .279 average, 13 home runs, 78 RBI, 56 runs and a stolen base across 131 games.
