When Sean Murphy moved from Philadelphia to Sacramento this off-season, he was sending a message.
Murphy, 25, had lived in Philly his whole life when not playing baseball. But after going 8-8 with a 4.08 ERA for Double-A Midland in the A’s organization last year, the right-hander set his eyes on Triple-A this time around.
Hence the move to Sacramento, home of the A’s Triple-A affiliate, the RiverCats.
“I’m hoping,’’ Murphy said. “I don’t know anything beyond that.’’
