Murray has a strong three-year track record of hitting at UC Davis in the Big West Conference and has a chance to stick at shortstop. The 6-foot-2, 170-pound shortstop hit over .300 in each season with the Aggies and posted a career .343/.394/.469 slash line in 115 games. He’s a hit-over-power type at the moment, but scouts think he could grow into more power in a few years with a projectable body and room for more weight on his frame. While Murray performed with UC Davis, he struggled last summer in the Cape Cod League, where he hit just .211/.272/.307 in 35 games, with 27 strikeouts to nine walks, leading to questions about he well he'll fare against better pitching. Defensively, Murray has a chance to stick at shortstop with solid hands, although some scouts think he’ll outgrow the position and be a better candidate to move around the infield. He’s a fringy runner without a ton of present power, so Murray’s value comes from his hit tool, defensive versatility and collegiate track record.
