Murphy to Pawtucket


This morning the Red Sox made two more roster moves, optioning David Murphy to AAA Pawtucket and assigning Jeff Bailey to minor league camp. Murphy will likely be the first outfielder called up to the majors if events dictate, and his name is routinely mentioned in trade rumors. It is unlikely that Murphy would be more than a fourth outfielder for the Sox, but he very likely could hold his own as a starter for another team, especially in the National League. Bailey, who spent the last two seasons with Pawtucket, is a 28-year old former catcher with some power relegated to DH/first base due to injury. In action this spring with the big league club Murphy went .235/.278/.292 in 34 ABs over 17 games and Bailey had a .167/.333/.292 line in 24 ABs in 18 games.
