Murphy has only played 56 games this season but has been solid during his time on the field. He currently holds a .300 batting average with six homeruns and 29 RBIs.
He's probably best known for his damage done against the Cubs in the 2015 NLCS where he hit a scorching .529 in the four-game sweep and mashed four homeruns.
It was basically an automatic non-out against Chicago in that series.

Cubs fans can only hope he can do half of that work down the stretch and come this postseason.
