MLB Rumors: Trade Talks Heating Up For Oakland Athletics Catcher

The fire sale in Oakland is set to continue as we get closer to the Trade Deadline day. According to Ken Rosenthal, teams are expressing interest in catcher Sean Murphy because of this,

The A's showed this offseason that they are willing to trade essentially anyone. Thus, it wouldn't be surprising in the slightest to see Murphy moved. In fact, with his trade value at its highest, it seems more likely than not that we will see him moved.

In 89 games this campaign, Murphy has 11 home runs, 40 RBIs, and a .245 batting average. Overall, it's been a fairly solid year for the four-year veteran. Teams looking for some insurance behind the plate should call Oakland immediately.
