RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Murphy spent most of 2015 in the minors, where he showed excellent power-hitting ability. In 294 plate appearances with Double-A New Britain, the 24-year-old had a .788 OPS and improved it to an outstanding .836 after his promotion to Triple-A Albuquerque. This strong showing and injuries at the major league level led to his first big-league action in September. He only batted .257 in 39 plate appearances, but still showed his impressive power with three homers and a double. Murphy's season was cut short with another shoulder injury in October -- he missed most of 2014 with a shoulder issue -- but no structural damage was found and he should compete for a spot on the Rockies' roster in the spring if he can stay healthy.

2015

The Rockiesí top catching prospect, Murphy was viewed as a dark horse to reach the majors at some point last season, but that never materialized as he batted .213/.321/.415 through mid-May at Double-A Tulsa and then missed the remainder of the campaign with a shoulder issue. Heís expected to be healthy for the start of the upcoming season and figures to slot back in as the primary catcher at the same level again, but the 24-year-old will need to rediscover the plus power and on-base skills that he previously demonstrated in the California League. Murphy isnít nearly as skilled defensively as he is with the bat, but the Rockies seem to believe his receiving abilities and throwing arm are competent enough for him to avoid a position change. In any case, itís Murphyís offense that will dictate his eventual arrival to the majors, so if heís able to rebound swiftly from the long injury layoff, he could still have an outside chance at usurping the disappointing Wilin Rosario for the Rockiesí everyday catching gig some point later in the season.

2014

The Sally League proved to be no challenge for Murphy, who slashed an impressive .288/.385/.590 with 19 homers before getting the call to Double-A Tulsa, skipping High-A entirely. He was able to maintain his success at the plate following the promotion, but still seems likely to spend most of the 2014 campaign at Tulsa for further defensive polish and some light refinement to his swing. Though Murphy doesnít possess the game-changing power of Wilin Rosario, the Rockiesí anointed catcher of the present and future, he appears to be much more adequate as a game-caller and pitch-blocker, and has thus far proven capable with the bat. Colorado's pursuit of Carlos Ruiz in free agency in the offseason suggests the organization is somewhat skeptical Rosario can make the necessary defensive improvements to stay behind the plate long-term, which could open the door for Murphy at some point if he continues to thrive in the upper minors.
