Murray put himself on the prospect map with an all-star summer last year in the Cape Cod League, where he saved eight games and allowed just one earned run in 19 innings. He has continued to impress at Kansas, where he has been a key contributor in the bullpen for three seasons. Though he's just 6 feet and 193 pounds, Murray generates a 91-94 mph fastball without much effort. He complements his fastball, which features some life, with a solid slider. His pitches tend to get on hitters quickly because his high leg kick adds deception to his delivery. He consistently throws strikes as well. Murray may not have closer stuff, but he could be a set-up man who won't require a lot of minor league seasoning before he's ready for the majors.
