C - SEA - IL10
It was revealed that Tom Murphy has a broken bone in his foot and will begin the season on the IL.
The Mariners don't expect the recovery to take long, but with the Mariners opening the season tomorrow, they were forced to place him on the IL. They also don't want him to rush his recovery, which will hurt his chances of playing in a significant amount of games this season.
Tom Murphy, who took a foul tip off his left ankle on Sunday, is still sore and not responding well to treatment. He is looking doubtful for Opening Day.
The Mariners were hopeful Murphy could recover with rest and rehab but that hasn't been the case so far. Per Seattle Times beat writer, Ryan Divish, Joe Hudson is likely the next man up if Murphy were to miss time with an IL stint. Murphy was a bright spot for the M's last year when he mashed 18 homers and knocked in 40 runs over 240 AB's.

Murphy is slated to be the starter at catcher for the Mariners after a breakout campaign (18 homers, 126 wRC+ over 281 plate appearances). Murphy's strikeout-heavy approach lends itself to negative regression, but he is an above-average catcher due to his power.
