Rick Forney on Max Murphy: I’m a big fan of Max. The year he was picked up by the Diamondbacks, no one could get him out. He was locked in and hitting everything hard. He’s a great defender who covers a lot of ground with a good throwing arm. He’s a guy that plays a lot of ballgames for you and understands independent baseball. He’s a phenomenal player, and I’m thrilled to have him.
