Minor league free agent (Feb. 2016)
Released (March 2016)
Scouting Report: Drafted by the Red
Sox in the first round in 2003, Murphy was traded to Texas as part of the
Eric Gagne deal in 2007. He went on to become a valuable 4th
outfielder, capable of playing all three outfield postions adequately.
However, he has not played center field since 2012. Good splits against
right-handed pitching. Decent contact, marginal power and speed.
