Daniel Murphy's Brother Signed by Minnesota Twins


According to ESPN,   Jonathan Murphy, the brother of the Mets' Daniel Murphy, was selected in the 19th round by the 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."
