Yankees make a few roster moves


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) The Yankees made a few roster moves Tuesday. They recalled catcher John Ryan Murphy from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, signed infielder Scott Sizemore to a major-league contract and placed catcher Francisco Cervelli on the 60-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

John Ryan Murphy to join Yankees Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2014) The Yankees will promote catcher John Ryan Murphy Tuesday to serve as the team's No. 2 catcher while Francisco Cervelli is sidelined, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Murphy made 16 appearances with the Yankees last season, going 4 for 26 with one extra-base hit (a double) and one walk. He's 5 of 26 with three doubles and no walks with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season.


Yankees send John Ryan Murphy to minor-league camp


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) The Yankees reassigned catcher John Ryan Murphy to minor-league camp Tuesday, the New York Daily News reports.

The move leaves Austin Romine and Francisco Cervelli to duke it out for the backup role at catcher, with Cervelli looking to be the odds-on favorite to win the job.


White Sox interested in J.R. Murphy


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/22/2013) MLB.com reports that the White Sox are looking to acquire a catcher this offseason, and the Yankees' J.R. Murphy is one of the players the team is considering as a trade target.

Murphy made his major league debut in 2013, appearing in 16 games with the Yankees and going 4 for 26 (.154) at the plate. He spent most the season in the minors, hitting .269 with 12 home runs and 46 RBI in 108 combined games with Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Baseball America has Murphy ranked as the Yankees' No. 4 prospect for the 2014 season.


J.R. Murphy draws first career start


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2013) Yankees catcher J.R. Murphy made his first career start Saturday in Boston. The 22-year-old entered Saturday's game against Jon Lester having already appeared in five games for the Yankees. He is 2 for 3 with a pair of runs scored. 

Yankees add five as part of September callups


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2013) The Yankees have called up the following players as part of rosters expanding in September, the New York Post reports. 

New York has added: Catcher J.R. Murphy; third baseman David Adams; reliever Brett Marshall; reliever Cesar Cabral and reliever Dellin Betances


Yankees could turn to J.R. Murphy


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2013) The Yankees may be open to using Triple-A catcher J.R. Murphy behind the plate in the future, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. With Francisco Cervelli sidelined and poor production coming from Chris Stewart and Austin Romine, GM Brian Cashman may have no other options.

"I’ve been open to anything that makes sense, but the market is completely barren," Cashman said. "If you’re looking at a catcher, then probably a guy we’ll focus on is J.R. Murphy more than anybody else. I’m not saying we’d do anything, but if you’re looking at alternatives, that’s the most realistic one we got."

The 22-year-old Murphy is batting .299 over 18 games since being promoted from Double-A Trenton where he hit .268 over 49 contests with six homers and 25 RBI.

J.R. Murphy getting back on track


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2013) After struggling after his promotion to Double-A last year, Yankees catching prospect J.R. Murphy has regained his swing during his second stint with Trenton this season. Murphy, who was considered among the top-five catchers in the 2009 MLB Draft by Baseball America and was taken by New York in the second round, is hitting .309 with eight doubles and 19 RBI over his first 26 games.

The 21-year-old drove in 16 runs with a .231 batting average in 43 outings with Trenton last season. He also has a .400 OBP and .515 slugging percentage this year.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2013) Yankees catcher Austin Romine was the first significant cut of the spring for New York on Monday, reports the Journal News. Romine was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre along with LHP Francisco Rondon and RHPs Dellin Betances and Brett Marshall. The team also optioned LHPs Manny Banuelos and Nik Turley, RHP Jose Ramirez and OF Ramon Flores to Double-A Trenton. New York also reassigned pitcher Chase Whitley, catcher J.R. Murphy and first baseman Luke Murton to minor league camp.
