  • Braves' Sean Murphy: Inks extension with Atlanta

    Murphy agreed to a six-year, $73 million extension with Atlanta on Tuesday, which includes a $15 million club option for 2029.

    The contract buys out three years of arbitration eligibility and could keep Murphy in Atlanta until the 2030 campaign, barring a trade. The 28-year-old was acquired from Oakland in mid-December after he posted a .250/.332/.426 slash line with 18 home runs and 66 RBI for the Athletics last season, and he also won a Gold Glove in 2021.

  • Braves' Sean Murphy: Traded to Atlanta

    Atlanta acquired Murphy from the Athletics on Monday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Oakland's return for the catcher isn't yet clear. Murphy slashed .250/.332/.426 with 18 home runs and 66 RBI last season and, with exceptional abilities behind the plate, brings massive value entering his age-28 season. Unless Atlanta, which sent William Contreras to Milwaukee in the trade, also gets rid of Travis d'Arnaud, Murphy and d'Arnaud figure to share time behind the plate in 2023, with the latter seeing more action at designated hitter.

  • Athletics' Sean Murphy: Racks up three hits

    Murphy went 3-for-5 in Tuesday's 2-1 extra-inning win over the Angels.

    All three of Murphy's hits were singles. He missed one game with an illness and has since gone 4-for-10 across two contests since his return. The catcher has enjoyed a career year in almost all aspects, batting .251 with 18 home runs, 66 RBI, 67 runs scored, 37 doubles, two triples and a stolen base in 147 games. Only his .333 on-base percentage and .429 slugging percentage have fallen short of being career-best marks, as he logged better ratios in smaller samples in 2019 and 2020.
