Twins acquired C John Ryan Murphy from the Yankees for OF Aaron Hicks.
This is a case of both teams using depth to upgrade in other areas. After Kurt Suzuki's disappointing season, the Twins had an obvious need behind the plate. Murphy doesn't turn 25 until next May and batted .277/.327/.406 with three home runs and 14 RBI over 67 games this season while serving as Brian McCann's backup. He'll share playing time with Suzuki at the very least, but the Twins are likely hoping that he can become a decent regular. As for the Yankees, the move signals that they believe prospect Gary Sanchez isn't far off from the majors. Nov 11 - 2:14 PM
