Mariners' Tom Murphy: Inks one-year deal
Murphy (shoulder) and the Mariners agreed on a one-year, $1.625 million contract Friday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
The catcher had to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery in late June, but he is expected to be ready for the start of the 2023 campaign. Murphy batted .303 with a solo homer and nine runs scored over 33 at-bats in 14 games with Seattle last season and figures to back up Cal Raleigh.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Tom Murphy: Transferred to 60-day IL
Murphy (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
Murphy's move to the 60-day IL is simply procedural, as the Mariners announced last week that the catcher will require season-ending shoulder surgery. Luis Torrens (shoulder) landed on the 10-day IL on Monday, so Andrew Knapp is on the active roster to serve as the primary backup to Cal Raleigh behind the plate.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Tom Murphy: Requires season-ending surgery
Murphy (shoulder) will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Murphy sustained his shoulder injury in early May and suffered a setback several weeks later. The 31-year-old started to ramp up his rehab process recently after being shut down and received a PRP injection, but he'll ultimately require a procedure that will force him to miss the remainder of the season. Cal Raleigh and Luis Torrens should continue to serve as the Mariners' top two options behind the dish.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Tom Murphy: Ramping rehab back up
Murphy (shoulder) is back to doing work in the batting cage following a temporary shutdown of his rehab process, the Associated Press reports.
The veteran backstop is both batting and catching balls from a machine as he begins to ramp his rehab work following a pause. Murphy had previously been shut down for 10 days due to a lack of responsiveness from his shoulder, so the fact he seems to be increasing his activity level without any reported setbacks is encouraging....

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Shut down for 10 days
Murphy will refrain from participation in baseball activities for 10 days due to a lack of responsiveness from his injured left shoulder, Craig Forde of MLB.com reports. "He's not ready to go," manager Scott Servais said. "As much as he's tried to push it and as hard as he's worked, it just hasn't picked up the momentum it's needed to."
The veteran backstop therefore looks likely to be sidelined until early-to-mid-June at the earliest. Murphy had been enjoying a fruitful start to the season that included a .303 average, .894 OPS and a 19.5 percent walk rate, but he'll be out for at least a couple more weeks and is now likely to need a multi-game rehab assignment before he's deemed ready for activation....

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Suffers setback in recovery
Murphy (shoulder) has suffered a setback in his recovery process, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
The Mariners were hopeful that Murphy would be able to return from the injured list during the team's weekend series in Boston since the backstop recently took swings in the batting cage and caught a bullpen session. However, he won't be back in action this weekend following his setback. It's not yet clear whether Murphy will be in the mix to be activated once the Mariners return home early next week....

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Could return for Boston series
Murphy (shoulder) continues to take swings in the batting cage and is expected to catch a bullpen session Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Manager Scott Servais said he's optimistic that Murphy will be ready to return from the 10-day injured list at some point during the Mariners' upcoming series in Boston that begins Thursday. Once Murphy is activated, he's expected to form a timeshare at catcher with Luis Torrens. The Mariners will likely send Cal Raleigh to Triple-A Tacoma whenever Murphy is deemed ready to go....

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Takes swings Friday
Murphy (shoulder) took swings in the cage Friday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
Murphy has been on the injured list with a dislocated left shoulder for nearly a week, and manager Scott Servais said Friday that the backstop isn't yet feeling 100 percent. The Mariners are currently on a road trip that runs through next Sunday, and Servais indicated that it's possible Murphy will be able to return sometime late in the road trip.... See More ...

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Slated to miss time
Manager Scott Servais said Friday that Murphy (shoulder) will be out for a while, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.
Murphy was removed from Friday's loss to the Rays after sustaining a dislocated left shoulder, and the backstop will presumably land on the injured list following Servais' update. Cal Raleigh is a likely candidate to rejoin the major-league club as catching depth behind Luis Torrens.... See More ... See Less

Murphy left Saturday's game against the Rays with a dislocated left shoulder.

Murphy (neck) is starting at catcher and batting ninth Friday against the Rays.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Dealing with neck spasms
Murphy was scratched from Thursday's lineup due to neck spasms, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
The injury is not expected to hold Murphy out long term, and the hope is that he can return at some point during the team's weekend series against the Rays. Even so, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Luis Torrens draw a start behind the plate Friday to allow Murphy an additional day of rest.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Tom Murphy: Scratched Thursday
Murphy was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Rays for undisclosed reasons, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Takes seat Wednesday
Murphy is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.
Murphy started in three of the past four games, but he went 0-for-7 with five strikeouts and two walks over that stretch to drop his season average to .323. He should see a slight uptick in opportunities following the recent demotion of Cal Raleigh to Triple-A Tacoma, but Luis Torrens looks like Option 1A behind the plate for the Mariners at this time....

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Remains on bench
Murphy will sit Friday against the Marlins.

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Continues raking Saturday
Murphy went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and two runs in a win over the Royals on Saturday.
The veteran backstop continued to rip the cover off the ball in Saturday's 13-run breakout, authoring his first multi-hit effort since his first start of the season. Murphy has made the most of his seven appearances thus far, producing a .421 average and 1.174 OPS across his first 24 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Tom Murphy: Scores thrice in Friday's win
Murphy went 1-for-2 with two walks and three runs in a win over the Astros on Friday.
The hot-hitting catcher pushed his average and on-base percentage to .500 and .636, respectively, with his highly active day at the plate and on the basepaths. The sample size of 11 plate appearances on the season for Murphy is miniscule, but it's nevertheless encouraging to see the veteran backstop hit safely in each of his first three games after producing a disappointing .202/.304/.350 slash line across 97 games a season ago....

Mariners' Tom Murphy: Homers, scores twice
Murphy went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk and two runs scored in a 4-3 win Saturday in Minnesota.
