  • Sean Murphy Goes Deep Wednesday

    Oakland Athletics catcher Sean Murphy remained with the club past the trade deadline, and he rewarded that decision by going deep off Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani in a 3-1 victory. He went 2-for-4 with three RBI in the game. Murphy now has a .757 OPS with 13 homers this year, but given that he is likely the best remaining player on the roster, he doesn't figure to have much opportunity for counting stats going forward and remains a borderline fantasy option behind the plate.

  • Guardians Have Discussed Sean Murphy

    The Cleveland Guardians and Oakland Athletics have discussed catcher Sean Murphy, according to sources. However, the talks hadn't gained much traction as of Sunday morning. The A's can hang onto Murphy, who is under team control for another three and a half years, until the offseason and deal him in a much better market. Oakland has highly regarded prospect Shea Langeliers waiting at Triple-A. Cleveland needs an offensive jolt at catcher, and Murphy is an above-average hitter and a Gold Glove winner. The A's could use outfield and high-end starting pitching prospects, but the Guardians might be more inclined to tap into their surplus of middle-infield prospects. Murphy is currently hitting .238/.314/.423 with 12 home runs, 41 RBI, 43 runs scored and a stolen base in 336 at-bats for the A's.

  • Sean Murphy Not Starting On Wednesday

    Oakland Athletics catcher Sean Murphy isn't in the team's lineup on Wednesday for a matchup with the Houston Astros and right-handed starter Cristian Javier. Murphy has been one of Oakland's best position players so far this season, batting .244 with a .322 on-base percentage, 11 home runs, and a stolen base in 368 plate appearances. Instead, the A's will start Stephen Vogt behind the plate against Javier and the Astros. The veteran is hitting sixth on Wednesday. For the season, Vogt is batting .46 with a .215 on-base percentage and four home runs in 93 plate appearances. Fantasy managers in search of streaming help are probably better off looking elsewhere.
