Mariners' Tom Murphy: On base thrice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run in a loss to the White Sox on Friday.

Murphy's breakout season at the plate looks like it's on its way to wrapping up in strong fashion, as the backstop now has a trio of multi-hit efforts over the eight games he's suited up for in September. Murphy's career-best .280 average and impressive .555 slugging percentage are largely comprised of his career-high 30 extra-base hits (12 doubles, one triple, 17 home runs), numbers he's generated in his first major-league campaign with more than 100 plate appearances.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Plates another pair
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 1-for-3 with a two-run single in a loss to the Astros on Friday.

Murphy opened the scoring on the night with his first-inning single that brought home both Austin Nola and Mallex Smith. The 28-year-old catcher is up to 38 RBI on the season, which adds to a slew of career-best figures that also includes 12 doubles and 17 home runs across 238 plate appearances.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Smacks homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-6 with a solo home run in Sunday's 11-3 win over the Rangers.

Thanks in part to a surge in matchups versus left-handed pitching, Murphy cracked the lineup for the seventh time in eight games, with five turns coming at catcher. Though the Mariners will oppose a right-hander (Kyle Hendricks) in Monday's series opener with the Cubs, Murphy will stick in starting nine at catcher over the lefty-hitting Omar Narvaez, who is dealing with back spasms. The 58-80 Mariners have little incentive to rush Narvaez back, so Murphy could be in store for a decent amount of playing time during the team's six-game week.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Another powerful performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Rays.

Murphy took Jalen Beeks deep in the sixth inning to record his 16th homer of the season. He has been on a power binge of late, with his marking his sixth long ball in his past four games. While his raw power is unquestioned, Murphy's lack of contact has held him back throughout his career. That hasn't changed this season, as he currently owns a 35 percent strikeout rate across 194 plate appearances.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Blasts two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 3-for-3 with four RBI and two home runs in a 9-3 win over the Rays on Monday.

Murphy blasted a three-run home run in the first inning and added a solo shot in the fifth frame. It has been an impressive week for Murphy, hitting five home runs in the last three games. The 28-year-old now has 15 home runs and a .296/.328/.609 slash line this season.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Smacks 13th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run home run and a stolen base in Sunday's win over Toronto.

Murphy launched a two-run home run in the fourth inning, handing his team a four-run lead. He'll end his week on a high note, as he's now homered three times in the last two days. Murphy will also head into Monday's series opener in Tampa Bay with a six-game hitting streak.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Hits two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs and a walk in Tuesday's 11-6 win over the Tigers.

Murphy went deep during the fourth and sixth innings to deliver his second multi-homer performance of the season. The 28-year-old is putting together a quality offensive season -- especially for a reserve catcher -- with a .273/.304/.541 slash line and 12 home runs in 50 games.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Rips three-bagger in narrow win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run in a win over the Padres on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old backstop came home with the Mariners' first run of the game on Kyle Seager's groundout in the second inning. Murphy had been on base courtesy of his first triple of the season, the latest milestone in a solid offensive campaign. Murphy is now slashing .272/.300/.519 across 170 plate appearances, and 19 (eight doubles, one triple, 10 home runs) of his 44 hits have impressively gone for extra bases.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Goes yard in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double in Friday's 3-2 win over the Tigers.

Murphy provided the biggest hit of the night for the Mariners with his game-tying homer in the seventh inning helping to set the stage for Mallex Smith's walkoff single in the ninth. Murphy is up to 10 homers, 24 RBI and 15 runs scored in 42 games this season. He has hit safely in his last six games, going 8-for-22 with a homer and three doubles in that span.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Pair of RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a double and a run in a win over the Angels on Friday.

Murphy's solid offensive season continued in Friday's win, with his multi-hit effort pushing his average in July to .316. The veteran backstop has continued to display his penchant for timely hitting during the current month as well, as he now has four RBI over his last five games. For the season, Murphy boasts a .908 OPS over 56 plate appearances with men on base.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Goes yard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The catcher is up to nine homers and 19 RBI in 35 games this season. Murphy has a .269/.296/.538 line over 119 at-bats. The two-hit effort snapped a 3-for-26 skid over his previous seven games.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Slugs eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs in the Mariners' 6-4 loss to the Royals on Monday.

It was the eighth long ball of the season for Murphy, who continues to hit well while sharing catching duties with Omar Narvaez. He's now slashing .300/.319/.611 through 90 at-bats, which would ordinarily make a case he deserves the majority of the starts at the position. However, Narvaez is also having a solid season at the dish, so the two figure to continue to share starts for the time being.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Five homers in last five starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in the Mariners' 9-3 win over the Angels.

Though Omar Narvaez has handled the bulk of the starts behind the dish this season, Murphy's recent production may have the Mariners' catching situation trending into more of a timeshare. After Sunday's monstrous performance, Murphy is now sitting on a nine-game hitting streak and has slugged five home runs in his last five starts. Murphy's surge has prompted manager Scott Servais to alternate starts between the two backstops over the past six games, a pattern that could continue until the 28-year-old's bat cools off.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday's 6-2 victory at Angel Stadium.

Murphy launched his shot off starter Andrew Heaney in the sixth inning to score Daniel Vogelbach and Tim Beckham. The long ball was his second in as many games since his last start June 5. The 34-year-old backup catcher has made the most of his infrequent at-bats this season. Overall, he's slashing .297/.325/.554 with five home runs, 11 RBI and eight runs scored through 24 games.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's 14-1 win over the Astros.

Murphy swatted a two-run homer off reliever Brady Rogers in the sixth inning for his fourth long ball of the season. In his limited opportunities at the plate as Seattle's backup catcher, the 28-year-old is hitting an impressive .300/.329/.529 with eight RBI and seven runs scored through 23 games.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Paces offense Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Friday's 4-3 win over the Angels.

The backup catcher scored on a Dylan Moore single in the third inning, and then went yard in the fifth inning to extend the Mariners' lead to 3-0 at the time. In 20 games, Murphy is hitting .302 with three homers and four doubles across 63 at-bats, although Omar Narvaez continues to have a strong hold on the starting catcher job in Seattle.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Murphy started behind the dish Friday and Saturday, recording a hit in both games but striking out five times between the two contests. Omar Narvaez will check back into the lineup for the series finale and looks to have a fairly steady hold on the top spot on the depth chart at catcher.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Goes yard Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer against the Angels on Sunday.

Murphy's shot -- his second of the season -- came in the ninth inning as a part of the Mariners' furious comeback attempt. He's starting sparingly due to the strong performance of Omar Narvaez, though he's taken advantage when given a chance by going 9-for-21 with five extra-base hits.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Makes good use of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 3-for-4 with an RBI single and two doubles in a loss to the Indians on Tuesday.

Murphy drew a somewhat rare start and made very good use of it, posting his second multi-hit effort of the season. The 28-year-old has mostly capitalized on his opportunities thus far in 2019, hitting safely in four of the five occasions in which he's been in the starting nine. Omar Narvaez is still slated to continue logging the majority of starts behind the dish and is also performing well at the plate, but Murphy could progressively carve out more frequent playing time if his bat remains as hot as it's been during the early going.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Nabs another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy will bat eighth and is catching Friday night against the Astros, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Murphy went 0-for-3 in Thursday's matchup against the Royals, but he'll get another shot to start Friday evening. He'll catch Wade LeBlanc in the series opener.
