Sean Murphy signs six-year extension with Atlanta

Sean Murphy signs a six-year, $73 million extension with the Atlanta Braves with a club option for 2029.

Fantasy Impact

Sean Murphy traded to Atlanta

Sean Murphy was traded from the Oakland Athletics to the Atlanta Braves on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Murphy is coming off one of his best seasons where he hit .250 with 18 home runs. It may not seem overly impressive for a catcher but playing home games in Oakland isn’t ideal for a hitter. Murphy hits the ball hard and plays elite defense. He also is capable of playing everyday behind the plate which boosts his fantasy value. This should be seen as a massive upgrade for Murphy from a fantasy perspective.

Sean Murphy a potential trade target for the Cardinals

There is a series of events where the St. Louis Cardinals trade for a catcher and Oakland's Sean Murphy is reportedly at the top their list.

Fantasy Impact

The Cardinals have been active in the rumor mill so far this offseason as they have also been connected to Dansby Swanson and were connected to Trea Turner before he signed with the Phillies. While everyone has their eyes set on the free agent class, Murphy is one of the top players rumored to be potentially traded this offseason. He is coming off an 18 home run campaign hitting .250 at the plate with 66 RBIs.

Sean Murphy hits two-run homer in A's loss Tuesday night

Sean Murphy went 1-for-4 at the plate on Tuesday, hitting a two-run homer, and walking once in the A's eventual 10-9 loss to the Braves.

Fantasy Impact

Murphy has been the best player on the A's all season, and he hit his 18th homer of the season on Tuesday night. The Athletics' catcher has batted .254 on the season with an OPS of .779. The 27-year-old may be on another team come this offseason, but for now he is the best player on the A's and he should be treated as such.
