(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.
