Luke Murphy spent two seasons in the Vanderbilt Commodores’ bullpen and tied for the team lead with nine saves in 2021. In his final game at Vandy, Murphy pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings in what was a decisive Game 3 of the 2021 College World Series vs. Mississippi State. The Angels loved his high octane arm and took him in the fourth round of their pitching-only 2021 Draft.

Now Murphy's holding score for the Rocket City Trash Pandas and is currently tied for the Double-A lead in holds (12) with teammate Kolton Ingram. 

Murphy's fastball touches 99 mph which also has good riding action up in the zone, in addition to a true swing and miss slider and a changeup that he features to left-handed hitters. Murphy has all the makings of a late inning closer or setup man in the big leagues if he can continue to throw strikes and gain experience in the minors.  

As of today (9/3/2022) Murphy has posted a 2.81 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and a .168 BAA and is a key member of the Trash Panda's bullpen which feature Ben Joyce, Eric Torres, Kolton Ingram and Nick Jones. 

We caught up with Murphy on a recent homestand and talked baseball, the Trash Panda's club and playoff run they're on, in addition to some lighter side content where you'll come to learn a little bit about Murphy's personal side.
