Sean Murphy living up to Braves hype as potential best catcher in baseball
After a slow start to his Braves career, catcher Sean Murphy is now hitting like one of the best catchers in baseball. Murphy was traded to the Braves this offseason with the hope that he would finally reach his potential with a more talented lineup behind him. However, in his first seven games with the Braves, he struggled at the plate, hitting only .150 with no homers or extra-base hits. But since then, he has been on fire, hitting .333/.438/.889 with three home runs and 11 RBI in seven games. Murphy hit a solo home run against the Padres on Tuesday, helping the Braves to a 2-0 lead. With the injuries of other key players, Murphy’s hot streak has been crucial for the team. Murphy’s elite defensive skills combined with his current hitting prowess make him an All-Star caliber player, and possibly even the best catcher in the league. If he can maintain this level of play, the Braves have another steal on their hands.
