Athletics' Sean Murphy: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy isn't starting Saturday against the Rays.

Murphy had started in each of the last six games, but Austin Allen will start behind the dish and bat eighth Saturday. Murphy went 3-for-11 with a double and four RBI in his last three games.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Two RBI on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 1-for-3 with a two-run single and a walk in a loss to the Blue Jays on Thursday.

The Athletics ultimately were handed a lopsided loss, but Murphy's timely single actually overcame an early deficit for Oakland and created a temporary one-run advantage. Murphy still sports just a .218 average through 95 plate appearances, but his clutch hitting over the last pair of games has pushed his average with men on base to .313 over 39 plate appearances, and to .333 with men in scoring position specifically (15 PAs).

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Plates pair in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a run-scoring double in a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Murphy filled the designated hitter role in Wednesday's contest and certainly did his part with the bat, driving in half of the Athletics' runs on the night. The 26-year-old is still sporting a lackluster .213 average, but that figure's actually been climbing of late; factoring in Wednesday's production, Murphy is hitting .320 (8-for-25) with a double, two home runs, four RBI, three walks, two hit by pitches and four runs over his last eight games.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Orioles.

Murphy will get a breather after he went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's series opener. Aramis Garcia will start behind the plate and bat ninth.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Slams fourth homer Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the 3-2 loss Friday to the Orioles.

Murphy provided his third two-hit game of the season Friday. The catcher is slashing just .206/.324/.444 in 20 games. However, he has three home runs in his last four starts, flashing some of the power that he showed in the minor leagues. He hasn't played a full season in the majors yet, but he has 20-homer potential. Murphy's numbers in 2020 stretched over a full season gives him 19 home runs, 38 RBI and 57 runs scored.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Gets rest Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Murphy will get a well-deserved day off after he provided a pair of home runs while starting in both of the first two games of the series. Aramis Garcia will step in behind the plate, catching for starting pitcher Cole Irvin.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Goes yard again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Rays.

He crushed the second pitch he saw from Diego Castillo in the ninth inning over the fence in left-center field to bring the A's within a run, but they couldn't find an equalizer. Murphy has gone yard in back-to-back games and slugged all three of his homers on the year in his last eight contests, but on the season he's still only slashing .185/.323/.407.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Supplies only offense in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 2-1 win over the Rays.

He took Rich Hill deep in the fourth inning, giving Sean Manaea and the A's bullpen all the offense they would need. Murphy is still climbing out of his 0-for-14 slump to begin the season, but over his last 11 games he's gone a somewhat more palatable 8-for-36 (.222) with two homers and seven RBI.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Murphy will retreat to the bench after catching in each of Oakland's last three games, going 2-for-12 at the dish during that span. Aramis Garcia will fill in for Murphy behind the plate.

April 21, 2021 11:20 AM
Athletics' Sean Murphy: On bench Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Twins, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Murphy started behind the plate in the matinee, going 0-for-2 with a walk and a run, and he unsurprisingly won't start both ends of the doubleheader. Aramis Garcia will work behind the plate in Game 2 for the A's.

April 18, 2021 07:44 PM
Athletics' Sean Murphy: Goes yard Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy went 1-for-2 with a solo homer and a walk in Sunday's 3-2 win over Detroit.

Murphy's eighth-inning blast tied the game up at 2-2. After starting the year 1-for-18, the 26-year-old is 4-for-13 with four extra-base hits over his last four games.

April 17, 2021 02:08 PM
Athletics' Sean Murphy: Takes seat Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers.

Murphy went 1-for-7 with a double, two RBI, two walks and two strikeouts in the first two games of the series against Detroit. Aramis Garcia will take his place behind the dish Saturday, batting ninth.

April 13, 2021 01:28 PM
Athletics' Sean Murphy: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Murphy broke out of his season-long slump in Monday's 9-5 victory, going 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles while also reaching base on a hit by pitch. He'll cede catching duties to Aramis Garcia in the series finale, but expect Murphy to return behind the plate Thursday against the Tigers.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Takes seat Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is not in the lineup for Friday's game at Houston, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The 26-year-old started three of the past four contests and will head to the bench Friday against the Astros. Aramis Garcia will take over behind the plate for the A's.

April 7, 2021 02:08 PM
Athletics' Sean Murphy: Takes seat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (wrist) will return to the lineup Monday against the Dodgers, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Murphy was hit by a pitch on his wrist in the season opener and missed the next three games. The issue never seemed like a long-term problem, however. He'll catch and bat sixth Monday.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Not playing Sunday after all
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Murphy (wrist) will remain out of the lineup for a third straight game Sunday against the Astros, according to Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Though an initial lineup released on MLB.com listed Murphy as the Athletics' starting catcher, those duties will instead fall to Aramis Garcia while Murphy remains on the mend from a bruised right wrist. Per Alex Coffey of The Athletic, manager Bob Melvin said that Murphy didn't feel 100 percent while swinging in the batting cage, but the Athletics think the 26-year-old backstop will need only one more day off before checking back into the lineup. Oakland opens a three-game home series with the Dodgers on Monday.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (wrist) will start at catcher and bat sixth Sunday against the Astros.

He'll check back into the starting nine for the first time since Opening Day after missing consecutive games due to a right wrist contusion. Provided he comes out of Sunday's contest without issue, he should be in line to make the majority of the starts behind the dish during the Athletics' upcoming six-game week.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Remains sidelined Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (wrist) will sit again Saturday against the Astros, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Murphy was hit by a pitch in his wrist in Thursday's season opener and was scratched from Friday's lineup. He'll miss a second straight game Saturday, with Aramis Garcia getting another start behind the plate. Per Martin Gallegos of MLB.com, Murphy is feeling better and could pinch hit Saturday.
