After a wrist injury led to a disappointing sophomore season, Murphy rebounded with a strong summer in the Cape Cod League. He has ridden that momentum to an outstanding junior season that has made him a likely late or supplemental first-round pick. His tools play well across the board. He has size (6-foot-3 and 195 pounds) and strength, and hits for average with gap power. His plate discipline and sweet lefthander stroke make him tough to strike out, though he'd hit for more power if he added loft to his swing. Murphy has solid average speed and arm strength, and he plays a quality right field. At least one team has asked Baylor to play Murphy in center field so it can gauge his potential there, but Chris Durbin's presence eliminates that option.
