On the Farm: Shen Grad Rolling

Shenendehowa graduate Murphy Smith continues to impress for the Midland Rockhounds, the AA affiliate of the Oakland Athletics.

So far, Smith is third on the Rockhounds in innings pitched — and that comes while working exclusively out of the bullpen.

In 24.1 innings, Smith has pitched to a fantastic 1.11 ERA and 0.82 WHIP. He has a win and a save in eight appearances.

Smith has allowed just three earned runs this season, two of which came in his last appearance (May 4th).

Smith was converted to a relief role this season. Perhaps this switch was a move to better prepare him for a promotion and a potential role at the next level(s). If that’s the case, he should be impressing some people in the Oakland front office.

Smith graduated from Shen in 2006. He played his collegiate ball at Binghamton, where he was America East Pitcher of the Year in 2009.
