Scouting Report Daniel Murphy

Daniel Murphy - #28

26 years old
6'2" 205 pounds
3rd major league season (missed all of 2010 season)
Bats L/Throws R

To check out his 2010 scouting report before he got hurt and was slated to be the starting 1B, click here.
The Good: Short, balanced swing. Selective approach, and lets the ball travel deep in the zone and takes it the other way. Projects to a 15 HR hitter with more experience/full time job. Known as a work-aholic. Hit .282/.313/.485 in the 2nd half of the 2009 (he only played in 11 minor league games in 2010).
You got to at least be close to the bag before catching the ball...
The Bad: Is inexperienced trying to play 2nd base, and might not be athletic enough to be a full-starter at 2B. Doesn't walk very often (only had a .313 on base % in 2009).
Role: Pinch hitter/platoon at 2B if he can improve his defense.

My projections: 250 plate appearances, 7 HRs, 30 rbis, .285/.330/.450
