Murphy doesn’t jump out physically, standing at about 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, and the tools aren’t super loud, but he’s a good athlete and does a lot of things well on both sides of the ball. A legitimate two-way prospect, the needle might point a little more toward him being a pitcher long term. In four innings across two appearances, he allowed just two hits and a walk while striking out 10. From a high-3/4 slot, he has an athletic delivery and pitches with regular effort, pumping low-90s fastballs with life. His slider is firm, ranging from 84-89 with hard, late break. He also mixes in a 75-77 curveball with good spin and sharp downer break. At the plate, he keeps the barrel in the hitting zone and can drive the ball to all fields. He has good actions on the infield and first-step quickness. His throws are accurate with plenty of carry. In five games, he went 4-for-9 with a double and home run.

Notre Dame commit. Ranked no. 59 in the entire country for the 2022 class. Proportional, athletic 6-foot-1, 180-pound frame with more room to add strength. Got the nod for RakeCity against Elite Baseball Training early Saturday morning. Playing up an age level, Murphy fit right in with the ‘21 class and was flat-out dominant. An exceptional athlete that moves tremendously well on the mound, Murphy sat an easy 88-91 mph throughout his outing and touched 92 mph several times in his fourth inning of work. His fastball velocity plays up a tick or two because of the spin he gets on it, in the 2,300 to 2,500 RPM range, and the extension he creates downhill. It was a fastball heavy outing for Murphy, but he did work in some sharp sliders in the later innings that sat 78-80 mph with a 2,100 to 2,200 RPM average. The Fighting Irish commit threw five scoreless innings, allowing only two hits and he struck out nine batters. Murphy has a tremendous ceiling on the mound.
