The catching position has been a big black hole all year, and with a day game after last night’s game, J.R. Murphy has a shot to catch the big man. Murphy was extremely solid in the minors, moving through Trenton and Scranton this season with a .773 OPS. At 22 years old, there’s a ton of potential for Murphy.
The game starts at 1:05 PM, and you can catch it on
YES FOX. Enjoy.
UPDATE: (1:08 PM) No Soriano, he’s been replaced by Ichiro Suzuki. Sprained right thumb, day-to-day.
