MLB Rumors: Giants Trade Tom Murphy to Mariners After Catcher Is DFA'd

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

The Giants traded catcher Tom Murphy to the Mariners on Friday morning, MLB Network's Jon Heyman reported. What Seattle will send San Francisco's way is unclear at the time. 

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.
