Description: The Phillies have a first baseman in their minor league system, Jim Murphy, who is starting to show some solid power numbers at Double-A Reading.
Insight: Murphy is batting .288 with 11 HR, 37 RBI and an .853 OPS in 65 games. He's hit as many as 22 homers back in 2011. Being a first baseman, the question is how/where to find space for him to get at-bats at the big league level with Ryan Howard anchoring the Phillies at first.
