One game into the 2019 season, and the Giants already are making moves.

Welcome to Seattle, Tom Murphy!
The Mariners have acquired the catcher from the Giants in exchange for MiLB pitcher Jesus Ozoria.

It's the end of an era, and it lasted a whole four days. The Giants claimed Murphy from the Rockies on March 25.
Murphy, 27, appeared in one spring training game for the Giants. He went 1-for-2, but he was designated for assignment when the team announced its 25-man roster for Opening Day.
Over four MLB seasons with the Rockies, Murphy is a .219 career hitter and has knocked 10 home runs.
