Daniel Murphy officially becomes a free agent

Rockies 1B Daniel Murphy officially became a free agent on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Murphy and the Rockies had a $12 million mutual option, which Colorado declined. The aging first baseman will receive a $6 million buyout instead. Murphy hit just .236 with three homers in 40 games with the Rockies in 2020. He'll likely have to settle for a one-year deal somewhere.

Daniel Murphy goes hitless as Rockies get shutout

Daniel Murphy went hitless in three at bats in the Rockies' 1-0 loss to the Padres on Labor Day.

Fantasy Impact

We got excited when Murphy got off to a strong start this season. His swing always seemed tailor-made for Coors Field. It just hasn't happened, however. Murphy hasn't homered since August 7th and has posted a .648 OPS for the season.

Daniel Murphy collects two hits on Monday

Daniel Murphy went 2-for-4 with a double as the Rockies were shut out by the Padres on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Murphy got off to a torrid start at the plate this summer but he has since cooled off. Overall the lefty swinging first baseman is batting .276 with three homers, 15 RBI, and a .712 OPS. He's still interesting when the Rockies are playing at home, but that's about it at this point.

Daniel Murphy goes hitless on Monday

Daniel Murphy went 0-for-4 in the Rockies' 2-1 loss to the Astros on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

Murphy is just 1-for-15 over his last four games. It's a mini-slump and nothing to be overly worried about. The 35-year-old is having a nice bounce-back year overall, batting .294 with three homers and 13 RBI.

Daniel Murphy not in the lineup Wednesday

Rockies infielder Daniel Murphy is not in the lineup for the team's Wednesday afternoon matchup against Luke Weaver and the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact

With the Rockies having a day game after a night game Wednesday and a day off on Thursday, the veteran Murphy is likely just getting a couple of days off to keep him fresh.
