I've said all along I thought Murphy's best value to this team was as a trading chip. He simply doesn't have a position, but as a .300 hitter there are many small market AL teams that would use him as a #3 hitting DH.
Oakland, Seattle and Kansas City would be great landing spots for Murphy, where his glove won't get in the way and his move the line along bat will be accepted despite his lack of power.
As far as his injury hampering his value, it's an MCL many DHs would play through such an injury if they were in a pennant race, much different then an ACL.
