I doubt that would rub off. LHBs generally prefer low pitches naturally, especially a batter like Murphy who is a natural right hander but bats lefty. The lower pitch means his dominant hand and arm get to do more work, opposed to a higher pitch which requires more top hand effort.

It's the second part of this statement that created the myth in the first part.  Turner just generally needs to get more comfortable on low stuff, especially down and in.
