Greedy Pinstripes Top 28 Prospects List: #9

Prospects Month is in full swing and we're already up to our 9th best prospect in the farm system, John Ryan Murphy. Murphy is penciled in right now to become the Yankees backup catcher in 2015 and will likely lose his prospect status sometime in 2015. We're into the Top 10 ladies and gentleman and this is where things truly get interesting. 

Here is the write up from Kyle McDaniel on Murphy:

J.R. Murphy, C Video: Murphy is somewhere around Refsnyder as an upper level position player ready to contribute to the big league team, but scouts are a little more wary of Murphy’s chance to become an everyday player. He’s a 50 hit, 40 power type without a ton of offensive impact, but he’s better defensively, with a plus arm and at least average defensive skills. Some scouts still see some aspects of defense for him to work on, but indications from the analytical folks are that he’s an above average framer, so if that holds up and he reaches his offensive upside, there could be an everyday catcher here.
