Kyler Murray Instagram leading to Oakland A’s speculation
By David Hill
Kyler Murray has not forgotten about his first professional organization. He has been seen wearing Oakland A’s gear at times, although he appears to be doing so more often lately. Murray has also said that he would like to give baseball a chance at some point in time, although it is difficult to see how that will happen.
Speculation is now abounding about Murray’s next move. He deleted all mention of the Arizona Cardinals from his Instagram account and is no longer following them.
Let the Kyler Murray Oakland A’s speculation begin!
There could be plenty of reasons as to why Murray is no longer following the Cardinals or making reference to them on his page. It is entirely possible that his page is being updated and redone, with that follow coming soon.
But it is also fun to dream. Murray has highly regarded as a baseball player after all, being selected with the ninth overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft. He was a raw, but toolsy outfielder, someone that excited with his potential but would be a few years away from reaching the majors.
Suffice to say that Murray made the better choice for the short term. He has become a star in the NFL, guiding the Cardinals to the playoffs and has become one of the more exciting young quarterbacks in the league. It is difficult to imagine that he would give that up to spend a few years in the minors.
But that dream may always linger. While Murray could potentially scratch that itch with an appearance or two in spring training, it is not the same. Even though it is highly unlikely that Murray is contemplating a return to baseball, it is fun to dream.
Kyler Murray has removed all mention of the Arizona Cardinals from his Instagram. Let the Oakland A’s speculation begin once again!
