PG Grade: 9
Murphy is a very strong, physically mature right hander who is just scratching the surface of his physical potential. He has a very quick and loose arm and threw an easy 87-89 mph fastball in Ft Myers. But Murphy has very strong hips and he gets very little energy out of them in his delivery. It’s easy to see him as a consistent low 90’s power pitcher in the future when he starts incorporating his lower half. Murphy’s 74-77 mph curveball flashed good spin on occasion but he’s inconsistent on his release point on this pitch. We wouldn’t be surprised if Murphy doesn’t get a chance to hit at the college level, too. He has very good bat speed and some serious power potential. He also shows good athletic ability. Brian is an excellent student who has signed to attend Wake Forest. Scouts need to get a good look, this spring, at this broad shouldered RHP.
