Murphy took a long time to return from microfracture knee surgery in 2018, but it was worth the wait for his fantasy owners, as he produced a .299/40/12/42/3 line over 328 at-bats from June on. He's always been a good hitter, but has blossomed into a truly potent fantasy asset over the last three seasons, demonstrating the ability to knock 25 home runs with a batting average well north of .300. And that was before he played his home games at Coors Field, where he owns a .330 lifetime batting average. Murphy may be discounted in drafts on account of his increasing age, but it would not be shocking if he finished as a top-20 overall hitter in his first season in Colorado.

Daniel Murphy gets 2/24 from Rockies

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports Daniel Murphy’s contract with the Rockies is for two years and worth $24 million.

Fantasy Impact

Passan adds that Murphy is mainly expected to play first base, which makes sense considering his recent struggles defensively at second. Murphy’s bat will be a welcomed addition to a Colorado lineup that score the second most runs in the National League last year. Murphy will surely be a fantasy factor playing half his games at Coors Field.
