MLB Rumors: Arizona Diamondbacks Linked to Oakland A's Catcher

According to Nick Piecoro, the Arizona Diamondbacks have expressed interest in Oakland Athletics catcher Sean Murphy.

Murphy is one of the top trade targets at this juncture, and several teams have been making a push to acquire him. Now, Arizona is the latest to join the sweepstakes, and this may come as a surprise to some given their current rebuild.

Murphy would be a big addition to the Diamondbacks if acquired, so we will have to wait and see if they can pull something off. In 148 games last season, the 6-foot-3 catcher had 18 home runs, 66 RBIs, and a .250 batting average.
