Diamondbacks' John Ryan Murphy: Second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy will start at catcher and bat eighth Monday against the Rays.

Murphy will make consecutive starts for just the second time all season. Much like the first scenario, Murphy will catch Zack Greinke and Merrill Kelly on back-to-back days, but the 27-year-old appears locked in as only Greinke's personal backstop at this point. Carson Kelly continues to see the majority of starts behind the plate, but hardly has a stranglehold on the top spot on the depth chart.

Diamondbacks' John Ryan Murphy: Batting eighth in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy will start at catcher and bat eighth Thursday against the Pirates.

With a 1.040 OPS over a small sample of 30 plate appearances, Murphy has been the best fantasy option among the Diamondbacks' three catchers by a mile. That said, he still ranks second behind Carson Kelly in starts behind the dish this season, and Murphy's lack of polish as a defender should continue to keep him second on the depth chart. The lack of steady at-bats probably makes Murphy only worthy of consideration in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues that start two catchers.

Diamondbacks' John Ryan Murphy: Pops second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Rangers.

After hitting a career-high nine homers in 87 games last year, Murphy's showing some early pop in 2019 with two homers in only four starts. The 27-year-old should be in line for a bump in playing time with Alex Avila (quad) on the IL, but for now Murphy's fantasy value is still limited to deeper two-catcher formats.

Diamondbacks' John Ryan Murphy: Will catch Greinke's next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy will catch for Zack Greinke on Tuesday against the Rangers, Richard Morin of the Arizona Republic reports.

Murphy caught Greinke's previous two starts and is looking like the ace's personal catcher, and then he got Sunday's start (with Merrill Kelly) after the Diamondbacks placed Alex Avila (quadriceps) on the 10-day injured list. Arizona will stick with two catchers for now, preferring instead to call up outfielder Tim Locastro from Triple-A Reno, which means more at-bats for Murphy and Carson Kelly.

Diamondbacks' John Ryan Murphy: Goes deep
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in an 8-5 victory against the Padres on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old catcher belted his homer off the top of the giant brick wall in left field at Petco Park. Murphy displayed more power than usual last season, recording 18 extra-base hits, including nine home runs, in 208 at-bats. He had five homers in the first 351 at-bats of his career. Murphy is going to serve as Zack Greinke's personal catcher this season, but it's unclear how often Murphy will play when the other starters are on the mound. Power like he displayed Tuesday, though, won't hurt his chances for more at-bats.
