MLB: At least six teams have the Athletics Gold Glove catcher on their radar who fought for MVP

The receiver of the Oakland Athletics, Sean Murphy, stands as one of the most likely trade candidates of the offseason, and unsurprisingly, A’s is receiving a wide range of interest in the former Gold Glover. The St. Louis Cardinals have spoken to the A’s about Murphy. they also spoke with the Blue Jays on their sack surplus (Danny Jansen, Alejandro Kirk, and Gabriel Moreno).

Even the Atlanta Braves, a team ostensibly located behind the plate, have reached out to the A’s about the potential sale price. Murphy has also been linked to the Guardians, White Sox, Rays and Red Sox since the offseason began, and surely there are others reaching out to the A’s to get involved:

Arguably the Cardinals are the most obvious on-paper suitors for Murphy. Franchise icon Yadier Molina has formally retired after a 19-year career, and president of baseball operations John Mozeliak has been candid about his team’s interest in acquiring a new starting catcher.

Backup Andrew Knizner is a .204/.292/.288 hitter in parts of four seasons and therefore not likely to step into the starting role, and while the Cards have a promising young prospect in Iván Herrera, they are also winners. Now the club looks to make the most of the best remaining years of MVP Paul Goldschmidt and third-place finisher Nolan Arenado.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover big events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), important players’ signatures. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as an amateur. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but baseball is in my veins. Graduated in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS). , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it took almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to radio, providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
