2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Called upon to fill the backup role after Francisco Cervelli went down with a hamstring injury in mid-April, Murphy hit .286/.308/.365 with one homer in 65 plate appearances before heading back down upon Cervelli's return in June. During his time with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2014, Murphy slashed just .246/.292/.397 with six homers, 28 RBI and 13:42 BB:K in 51 games (196 PA), and while certainly not great, the Yankees' decision to trade Cervelli to Pittsburgh in the offseason speaks to the confidence they have in their catching depth. Brian McCann still has four years remaining on his contract and prospect Gary Sanchez is likely the long-term future at the position, but the team also has Murphy and Austin Romine to fall back on. Murphy seems like the favorite for the backup job in 2015 over Romine, but neither player would have much fantasy utility if McCann got hurt.

2014

Murphy had a decent year across Double-A and Triple-A in 2013, hitting .269 with 12 homers and a .773 OPS. Murphy has a pretty good eye at the plate, and seems much more likely to stick behind that plate than fellow prospect Gary Sanchez. The addition of Brian McCann is free agency has left the Yankees with a very crowded situation at the position, which does not bode well for Murphy's chances of sticking around in New York even after he's deemed ready to see time at the big league level in the next season or two.
