John Ryan Murphy’s unique take on the backup role

John Ryan Murphy’s unique take on the backup role

The backup catcher: it’s not the most glamorous role on a 25-man squad. But it’s an important one. At 27, this is John Ryan Murphy’s seventh season in the big leagues. Together with Alex Avila and newcomer Carson Kelly, he is one of three catchers on the Diamondbacks’ 25-man Opening Day roster. For a catcher vying to see more playing time, it’s not an enviable position to be in. But Murphy will likely get more opportunities to contribute than one might expect on a team carrying three competent backstops. Considering Kelly’s relative inexperience (he has logged just 70 games in...

Diamondbacks 4, Padres 5

Diamondbacks 4, Padres 5

Wasted opportunities cost the D-backs The Padres got to Merrill Kelly early, taking a 4-0 lead through three. He ended up going five frames, allowing four runs on eight hits and a walk with five Ks. The D-backs clawed their way back into the game, with a four-run sixth, courtesy of RBI from Nick Ahmed, Carson Kelly, Ildemaro Vargas and Adam Jones. But Matt Andriese couldn’t keep the game tied, allowing a home-run in his second inning of work. The D-backs threatened in the ninth, Ketel Marte doubling to lead things off, but the next three batters struck out, and Arizona finished the day...

Game 9: April 6th Diamondbacks 5 Red Sox 4

The DBacks Part the Red Sea with walkoff hit from Carson Kelly One had the sense this was going to be a very different game from last night. As the crowd filtered in the ratio of Red Sox fans to Dbacks fans seemed much less favorable than the previous game. And from the very first at bat the Red Sox fans were making themselves known with chants and cheers. While both pitchers posted 3 up 3 down innings in the first, Mookie Betts put a 8 pitch at bat against Weaver that seemed to set a tone that the Red Sox were here to battle tonight. Indeed it took 18 pitches to get back in the dugout. ...
