Updating the catching market: Narváez, Murphy trade?

Just one week ago today was Evan White Day, when we celebrated the Mariners handing out an unprecedented contract to their unique first baseman, only to be rudely interrupted partway through by Omar Narvaez trade rumors. The two are actually somewhat connected; locking down White at first frees up Austin Nola to be the backup catcher, making either Narváez or Tom Murphy expendable.

The catcher market remains the warmest part of the hot stove, and even in the week since the last article published (a holiday week, even!), enough things have shifted to call for an update.
