Daniel Murphy, Rockies reportedly agree to two-year, $24 million free agent deal

The Colorado Rockies are close to a deal with free agent infielder Daniel Murphy, according to multiple reports. It will be a two-year deal worth $24 million, reports Jeff Passan of Yahoo.

Half-surprised he couldn’t trick them into more money- maybe (Harold Baines aside) management is getting smarter…..

Mets may have just discovered their next Daniel Murphy

Daniel Murphy wasn’t really very good during hit Mets days. His poor defense siphoned off a lot of the value of his bat. Hopefully McNeil will be a better fielder.

“He reminds me of Daniel Murphy,’’ a scout who has followed McNeil in the minors told The Post on Wednesday.

That is some high praise.

“He puts the bat on the ball and he leaves the bat in the hitting zone a long time,’’ the scout said. “He makes solid contact and now that he has gotten a little stronger, he is starting to drive the ball. He is just a late bloomer because I have seen him through the years.

“You know how they say a player in the field has a nose for the ball,’’ the scout added. “Well, he has a nose for the ball at the plate.’’

Nationals throw in the towel, trade Daniel Murphy to Cubs, Matt Adams to Cardinals

Somewhere, Alex Anthopoulos and Matt Klentak are dancing a merry jig…..

With a sub-.500 record and their playoff hopes all but gone, the Washington Nationals have waved the white flag on the 2018 season and have begun tearing down a once-promising roster.

The Nationals on Tuesday traded three-time All-Star second baseman Daniel Murphy to the Chicago Cubs for minor-league infield prospect Andruw Monasterio and a player to be named or cash considerations.

“We took a chance at the first trade deadline and held tight with the belief that that was our best way to compete and kept almost our entire roster intact,” general manager Mike Rizzo said.

Bryce Harper, Matt Adams Reportedly Claimed On Revocable Trade Waivers

Nationals sluggers Bryce Harper and Matt Adams were claimed by unidentified organizations on revocable trade waivers, according to Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post (Twitter link). They join fellow left-handed hitting Nats veteran Daniel Murphy as pending free agents who were not able to make it through the waiver wire.

It’s hard to see Harper actually leaving, and hard to see Daniel Murphy actually staying.
