PHOENIX (AP) — The Minnesota Twins are sending Triple-A catcher John Ryan Murphy to the Arizona Diamondbacks for Double-A left-hander Gabriel Moya.

The deal agreed to Thursday was pending physicals for both players.

The 26-year-old Murphy, a second-round pick by the Yankees in the 2009 amateur draft, has played parts of four seasons in the majors — from 2013-15 with New York then last year for the Twins.

Through Tuesday, he was batting .222 with four homers, nine doubles and 27 RBIs for Rochester.

Moya, 22, was 4-1 with a 0.82 ERA and 17 saves in 34 appearances for the Jackson Generals.
