Nationals' Patrick Murphy: Headed for majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals will promote Murphy from Triple-A Rochester ahead of Tuesday's game in Miami, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Washington initially optioned Murphy to Rochester after claiming him off waivers from the Blue Jays on Aug. 14, but the organization saw enough from him in his three appearances at Triple-A to bump him up to the big-league roster. With Kyle Finnegan getting the job done as the Nationals' primary closer in the aftermath of Brad Hand being dealt ahead of the July 30 trade deadline, Murphy is unlikely to fill a fantasy-relevant role out of the Washington bullpen.

Nationals' Patrick Murphy: Claimed by Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals claimed Murphy off waivers from Toronto on Saturday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

The righty was designated for assignment Wednesday after posting a 4.82 ERA and 1.71 WHIP in 9.1 relief innings with the Blue Jays this season. Given his decent performance in eight big-league games, it's reasonable to think Murphy could earn an opportunity with the Nationals at some point still in 2021.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Murphy had tossed four scoreless innings across three relief appearances in the majors since the start of July, but he'll still be cast off the 40-man roster. The 26-year-old has a strong chance to remain in the organization if he goes unclaimed on waivers, but right-hander Trent Thornton will take his place in the bullpen.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

Murphy returned to the minors in late July but will return to the Blue Jays' bullpen as part of a move after left-hander Tim Mayza (elbow) was placed on the 10-day IL. The right-hander has mainly pitched in low-leverage situations in the majors, and he's recorded a 5.63 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in eight innings across seven relief appearances.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Retreats to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays optioned Murphy to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

After getting called up from Buffalo on Wednesday to serve as the Blue Jays' 27th man for a doubleheader with the Red Sox, Murphy was summoned from the bullpen in the second game of the twin bill. He tossed a scoreless frame in Toronto's 4-1 loss, but he'll head back to Buffalo with the Blue Jays needing to reduce their roster to 26 ahead of Thursday's series finale.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Joins Jays for twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays recalled Murphy from Triple-A Buffalo and designated him as their 27th man for Wednesday's doubleheader with the Red Sox, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

Murphy will give Toronto some length out of the bullpen for the twin bill, but he'll most likely be headed back to Buffalo on Thursday. He's made six relief appearances for the big club on the season, giving up five earned runs on eight hits and three walks over seven innings.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.

Murphy was called up by Toronto on Friday, but he didn't make any appearances during his most recent major-league stint. He's tossed 12 scoreless innings across eight relief appearances at Triple-A Buffalo this year and will now return to the minors. Infielder Breyvic Valera was reinstated from the family medical emergency list in a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Recalled by Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy was recalled by the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Murphy has posted a 6.43 ERA across six major-league appearances to begin the year, but he's tossed 12 scoreless innings during eight outings at the Triple-A level. The right-hander will be available out of the bullpen after Anthony Kay was sent down Tuesday.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Murphy allowed a hit and walked a batter in 1.2 innings of scoreless work Thursday against Seattle, but yielded three runs (two earned) while recording just one out Wednesday. Even in one of the league's worst bullpens, Murphy's 6.43 ERA through seven innings merited a demotion to Triple-A. Nick Allgeyer and Anthony Castro were recalled Friday to join a bullpen that's also now without Tyler Chatwood (neck).

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Returns from 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

The 26-year-old has been sidelined all season while rehabbing from an AC joint injury, but he's now poised to make his season debut for the Blue Jays. Murphy made his major-league debut in 2020 and pitched well with one run allowed on six hits with a 5:2 K:BB across six innings.

June 1, 2021 06:08 PM
Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Progresses to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (shoulder) will continue his rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo.

Murphy began a rehab assignment May 24 and made three relief appearances for Low-A Dunedin. He allowed two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out five in 3.1 innings during that time. The right-hander will now face Triple-A talent and could be nearing his return to the major-league mound.

May 25, 2021 12:04 PM
Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Pitches in first rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (shoulder) began a rehab assignment at Low-A Dunedin on Sunday, working 1.1 innings while giving up two runs (one earned) on three hits while striking out two.

The Blue Jays are likely planning to stretch Murphy out for starting duty at Triple-A Buffalo once he's ultimately reinstated from the 60-day injured list, so he could make a couple more appearances at the lower levels of the minors before he's exposed to tougher competition. Murphy has been recovering from an AC joint in his right shoulder, an injury he suffered while working out shortly before spring training.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Gets in bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (shoulder) completed an 18-pitch bullpen session Tuesday and is scheduled to throw again later this week, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Murphy has been shut down since the beginning of spring training due to an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder. Due to the length of his shutdown, Murphy will likely need multiple weeks to build up for starting duty. He'll likely be ticketed for the Triple-A Buffalo rotation once he's reinstated from the 60-day injured list.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Placed on 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (shoulder) was placed on the 60-day injured list Sunday.

Murphy had a delayed start to spring training due to an AC joint injury, and he'll miss the start of the regular season as a result of the injury. It's not yet clear when he'll begin working at spring training or when he'll be ready to return to game action. The right-hander made four relief appearances for Toronto last season and allowed one earned run over six innings.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Likely missing Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Ross Atkins said Friday that Murphy (shoulder) is dealing with an AC joint injury and isn't expected to be ready for Opening Day, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

It doesn't appear to be a serious injury, but the issue will affect the 25-year-old's buildup enough in spring training to delay his start to the season. Murphy made his big-league debut late in 2020 and pitched well out of the bullpen with one earned run allowed over six innings,

February 18, 2021 03:52 PM
Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Working through shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy suffered a shoulder injury during the offseason and hasn't yet begun work at spring training, Gregor Chisholm of the Toronto Star reports.

Murphy had a brief stint in the majors during the 2020 season, but he's getting a late start to spring training due to his shoulder injury. Manager Charlie Montoyo said that he doesn't yet have a timetable for a return. However, the Blue Jays will be monitoring injuries while making roster decisions given the team's pitching depth. As a result, the right-hander could be forced to begin the season in the minors if he isn't fully ready to pitch by Opening Day.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Recalled Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy will recalled by the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Murphy was called up as the 29th man for Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies, and he'll officially remain on the major-league roster after Santiago Espinal was optioned to the alternate training site in his place. Murphy tossed 1.1 scoreless innings Friday, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out three.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Joins roster for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy was called up by the Blue Jays as the 29th man for Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

If Murphy gets into either game, it will be his big-league debut. It will also be his first game above Double-A. He posted a mediocre 4.71 ERA at that level in 18 starts for New Hampshire last season, though that came with a 3.35 ERA and a solid combination of a 23.6 percent strikeout rate, 7.4 percent walk rate and 51.1 percent groundball rate.

Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Joins roster pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays included Murphy as part of their 60-man roster pool that was announced Sunday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Toronto still intends to develop Murphy as a starter, but with several pitchers ahead of him on the organization's rotation depth chart, any innings he gets with the big club in 2020 will most likely come out of the bullpen. He spent the bulk of the 2019 campaign with Double-A New Hampshire, supplying a 4.71 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 86:27 K:BB over 84 frames.

April 8, 2020 03:08 PM
Blue Jays' Patrick Murphy: Heads to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays optioned Murphy to Double-A New Hampshire on March 9.

Murphy retains a spot on the 40-man roster for the second season in a row, but his big-league debut doesn't appear to be imminent. The 24-year-old underwhelmed in his first full season at New Hampshire in 2019, posting a 4.71 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 84 innings.
