    I hope that's the case, although his minor league stats before last season weren't particularly impressive.

        I was fairly impressed. He was solid in his first full season at St. Lucie and in 2/3 of a season at Binghamton. And don't forget, the FSL is largely a pitchers league.

        More importantly Murphy hangs in there as well as anyone for a player his age/experience. I am still very impressed by his approach at the plate. I remain encouraged by his BB/K (2.5/3) and K/AB (1/8) ratios. Also, his OBP - while low - is 66 points above his Batting Average.

        His problem right now is that is BAbip is low, .264. Overall this means Murphy is making contact, but that the contact is not that good. If he becomes better at pitch recognition- or whatever else he needs to do, it may improve significantly. Murphy has a short clean stroke. I still like his chances, especially as a #2,3 (in the mold of Keith Hernandez) or #7 hitter, He'll need to hit .310+ to make up for a lack of power.

        He's been looking better with the glove too. Prior to this season he'd only played only 13 games at 1B.
