SPRING TRAINING: Murphy eyeing another big season

After a career year in Reading last year, Jim Murphy is eyeing even bigger things in the 2014 season.

The slugger bashed 23 home runs and had 83 RBIs with the Fightin Phils in 2013.

This year, he's focused on cutting down on his strikeouts and maintaining his solid defense at first base.

Dan Moscaritolo has more from Clearwater.
