BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the likelihood of J.R. Murphy getting to show much in the majors this year? It seems like the Yankees are going through a lot of catchers already, but he's still behind Romine, and McCann will be the starter.
(mockcarr from Arlington, VA)
He may get a cup of coffee this year, but without a major injury to McCann, Murphy isn't likely to get enough time to make much of an impact in 2014. (Mark Anderson)
