Princeton catcher Jack Murphy is likely to go in the top 10 rounds based solely on his size (6-foot-4, 230 pounds) and power potential. A switch-hitter, he shows above-average power from both sides of the plate in batting practice, but it doesn't translate into games, as he hit just .291/.394/.455 with four homers in 134 at-bats this spring. His swing is stiff from both sides, and he needs to clean up his offensive approach, particularly from the left side. Murphy does have soft hands and an average arm behind the plate, though he lacks mobility.
