Braves' Penn Murfee: Returns to Atlanta
Murfee (elbow) signed a one-year, non-guaranteed split contract with Atlanta on Wednesday.
After being claimed off waivers by Atlanta on Nov. 14 and non-tendered by the team three days later, Murfee will officially remain with Atlanta for the 2024 campaign. Murfee holds a 2.70 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in his career across 83.1 big-league innings, though a surgery in June to repair a torn UCL puts him at risk of missing the vast majority of the season....

The Mets claimed Murfee off waivers from the Mariners in late October, but he's now moving on to a different organization in the NL East.

Mariners' Penn Murfee: Shifts to 60-day IL
The Mariners transferred Murfee (elbow) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday.
Murfee's move to the 60-day IL was merely procedural, as Seattle general manager confirmed last week that the right-hander would require season-ending surgery to repair a torn UCL in his elbow. Seattle selected the contract of lefty Tommy Milone from Triple-A Tacoma to take Murfee's spot on the 40-man roster. Murfee closes the 2023 campaign with a 1.29 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 16:10 K:BB over 14 innings to go with one win and one hold.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Penn Murfee: To undergo UCL surgery
Mariners general manager Justin Hollander announced Tuesday that Murfee needs season-ending UCL surgery, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Murfee has battled elbow problems for much of the season and can now be ruled out until sometime in 2024, with the possibility he misses the campaign altogether if he's forced to undergo Tommy John surgery in the coming weeks. This is a big blow for the Mariners, as the 29-year-old reliever boasts a 2.70 ERA with 92 strikeouts in 83.1 innings since he debuted last season.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Penn Murfee: Will miss significant time
Murfee will receive a second opinion on his ailing right elbow and is expected to be out for an extended period, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Murfee's ulnar collateral ligament will be checked out in addition to some nerve issues in his elbow. It's not clear at this point whether he might need surgery, but even if he doesn't he might be a candidate to move to the 60-day injured list.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Penn Murfee: Placed on injured list
The Mariners placed Murfee on the 15-day injured list Monday with right elbow inflammation, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.
Murfee spent over a month on the IL with right elbow inflammation before returning Sunday. Now, he will be shelved for another 15 days with a similar injury. Because this is now Murfee's second elbow injury already this season, it's possible he's facing another extended absence. Ty Adcock was selected from Double-A Arkansas to fill Murfee's roster spot.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Penn Murfee: Undergoing MRI on elbow
Murfee will undergo an MRI on his injured right elbow Monday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Murfee was making his first appearance Sunday versus the Angels following a five-plus week stint on the injured list with an elbow issue, so this is ominous news. The first injury was referred to as inflammation, but an MRI could potentially show something more serious.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Penn Murfee: Exits with apparent injury
Murfee exited Sunday's game against the Angels in the bottom of the seventh inning with an apparent arm injury, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
Murfee allowed no hits and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless sixth inning before being removed in the bottom of the seventh. He appeared to be shaking his right arm as the trainer came out to meet him, which is somewhat concerning since the 29-year-old was just activated from the 15-day injured list Friday after missing a month with right elbow inflammation. However, the exact nature and severity of his current injury aren't yet clear.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Penn Murfee: Activated from injured list

Mariners' Penn Murfee: Another strong rehab showing
Murfee (elbow) fired 1.1 scoreless innings during which he issued a walk and recorded a strikeout in Triple-A Tacoma's win over Reno on Wednesday.
Murfee was sharp for the second time in as many rehab appearances, earning the win in the process. The right-hander worked up to 26 pitches, pounding 15 in for strikes. With 2.1 scoreless, hitless frames under his belt already with the Rainiers, Murfee may only need one or two more appearances on the farm to convince the Mariners he's ready for activation....

Mariners' Penn Murfee: Successful start to rehab stint
Murfee (elbow) was credited with a hold in Triple-A Tacoma's win over Sacramento on Sunday, firing a perfect eighth inning during which he recorded two strikeouts.
Kicking off his rehab assignment, Murfee pounded nine of his 15 pitches in for strikes. The right-hander, who's been on the shelf since early May, couldn't have asked for a better start to his journey back to the big-league club, and he's likely to log several more appearances with the Rainiers given the amount of time he's been sidelined....

Mariners' Penn Murfee: Kicks off rehab assignment
Murfee (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Murfee has been on the shelf for just over a month with right elbow inflammation, so the Mariners may want to see him make more than one appearance in the minors before bringing him back from the 15-day injured list. Before he was sidelined with the injury, Murfee had posted a 1.38 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 15:9 K:BB in 13 innings out of the Seattle bullpen while gathering one win and one hold.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Penn Murfee: Could return in early June
Murfee (elbow) is expected to rejoin the Mariners in early June, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Murfee landed on the injured list earlier this month with elbow inflammation, but he received a PRP injection "a week ago and is feeling better." He should begin a rehab assignment soon, and if all goes well he could be back with the big club at some point during Seattle's road trip that stretches from June 1-11.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Penn Murfee: Hits IL with elbow inflammation
Murfee was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday with elbow inflammation, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Per Divish, the Mariners don't think Murfee's injury is serious and hoped he could avoid an IL stint, but the team decided to take a long-term view with regard to his health. Juan Then was called up from Double-A Arkansas to take Murfee's place in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Penn Murfee: Takes second loss Sunday
Murfee (1-2) was charged with the loss in extra innings against the Guardians on Sunday, allowing two runs (one earned) on two walks over one-third of an inning.
Murfee entered with a 6-5 lead in the 12th inning, and after intentionally walking Jose Ramirez, the reliever advanced inning-opening runner Amed Rosario to third on an error during a pickoff attempt. That helped set up RBI groundouts by Josh Naylor and Josh Bell that allowed the tying and winning runs to cross the plate. Murfee has already logged seven appearances in the new season, and Sunday's earned run was the first he'd allowed over five innings.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Penn Murfee: Records win Friday
Murfee (1-1) recorded the win Friday against the Guardians, firing a scoreless fifth inning during which he issued a walk.
Murfee needed just 11 pitches, seven of which found the strike zone, to get through his one frame following a four-inning start from Logan Gilbert. Murfee has been busy early in the new season, with Friday's outing already marking his fifth appearance of the campaign. Murfee's ERA remains unblemished, and the one hit he allowed to the Guardians in his first outing of the season March 31 is the only one he's conceded through 4.1 frames.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Penn Murfee: Dominant start to spring
Murfee has fired five hitless innings over his first five Cactus League appearances, allowing a walk and hitting a batter while recording five strikeouts.
Murfee is believed to have the inside track for a top setup role in 2023, although the likes of Andres Munoz and Diego Castillo could certainly also see their fair share of eighth-inning work when not serving as closers alongside Paul Sewald. The 28-year-old Murfee was highly impressive as a rookie in 2022, recording a 4-0 record, 2.99 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 9.9 K/9 and seven holds across 69.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
