Daniel Murphy's Brother Signed by Minnesota Twins
Like his brother, the younger Murphy has played multiple positions and also is a Jacksonville University product.
Daniel Murphy expected his brother to report to the Appalachian League in Elizabethton, Tenn.
"He's better than me," Murphy said. "Athletic. He's much more athletic than I ever dreamed out. I think he was second in the nation in stolen bases this year. He's probably a 6.5, 6.6 [second] runner [in the 60-yard dash] when he's right. He can play center field. I think I square the ball up just a little bit more than he does, but he's got more juice, he's got more power, has got a better arm, runs better. Pretty much anything out on a baseball field he does it better than I do."
