Murdock stands a lanky 6-7, 175 and will play at Virginia in 2016. He has a long, fast arm action and his fastball currently sits in the upper-80s, reaching as high as 92 with some late arm side bore to it. Murdock throws a plus, true slider and a sinking change-up. He has the potential to add significant velocity as he fills out.

6.6.15:  Murdock only DH’d in this game, but he has an extremely lanky frame that looks like it would generate easy velocity on the mound. At the plate he has a long swing that has a lot of leverage and generates a ton of bat speed when he hits the ball and he has some pop.

4/27/19:Murdock worked into the 6th, leaving a bit prematurely as Boshamer Stadium experienced a power outage with a 25 minute delay, UVA lifted the 6-foot-8, 195 pound righty. High waisted and thin with length in the limbs, there is average athleticism and good body control over the rubber with above average quickness in the arm. Repeats the delivery, using a small rocker and simple leg kick to the mid chest, loading the backside. Slight uphill tilt in shoulders as the front side foot strike is a half foot across his line, landing square. Loose, natural 3/4 slot. Fastball did not create any swing and miss but did create soft contact with its horizontal movement, ranging 88-93, sitting 90-92 for a majority of the outing. Located to the arm side, the movement created several freeze type takes, a couple for strikeouts. More location to halves than spots, and the ability to elevate is still developing. Slider can firm but works with good length, sweeping away from right handed hitters at 79-82. Created swings and miss, and soft contact, vs. right handed hitters and several left handed hitters. Slider works to the glove side only, losing its length, and just tumbling when on the arm side. Flashed several average change-ups to left handed hitters. Fade and deception are present when arm speed is maintained. Will slow the arm at times, choking the pitch and missing to the arm side. Average feet on picks. Has a feel for controlling his rhythm and tempo to control the run game. 1.25 – 1.30 to the plate with runners at 1B. Murdock gave up 7 hits and 4 earned runs in 5.1 innings, striking out 8, five on sliders. Of his 114 pitches, 66 were strikes. (B Hall)
