9/5/2014 7:02:00 PM
Description: The Indians activated outfielder David Murphy from the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: Murphy missed the last four weeks with an oblique strain, but he has been cleared to play after a couple rehab games at Triple-A. He will platoon in right field and play against right-handed pitching. Murphy is hitting .262 with seven home runs and 55 RBI this year.
 
8/10/2014 12:44:00 PM
Description: Cleveland right fielder David Murphy has been placed on the disabled list with a sore right side, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Insight: Murphy is third on the Indians with 55 RBI this season behind Michael Brantley and Carlos Santana. He's hitting .262 with seven homers, 36 runs and a .708 OPS. Nick Swisher was also placed on the DL Sunday and Cleveland called up Tyler Holt and Zach Walters from Triple-A Columbus.
 
Hot6/2/2014 9:40:00 PM
Description: Cleveland right fielder David Murphy extended his hitting streak to six games Monday in a victory over the Red Sox.
Insight: He did it in impressive fashion by going 3-for-3. Murphy's season average has shot up to .282. At the start of the streak, he was only hitting .267.
 
Hot5/21/2014 6:07:00 PM
Description: Indians right fielder David Murphy hit a tie-breaking two-run homer off Joe Nathan in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday afternoon against the Tigers.
Insight: Murphy finished 2-for-6 with a double, a homer, four RBI and two runs. He also homered Tuesday and is batting .294 with five homers, 30 RBI, 19 runs and an .843 OPS this year, a massive improvement over 2013 (.220, 13 HR, 45 RBI, .656 OPS).
 
5/14/2014 10:44:00 PM
Description: Cleveland compiled 22 hits Wednesday at Toronto and right fielder David Murphy had five of them.
Insight: Murphy had three doubles and drove in five runs. He was hitting .162 (6-37) in May entering Wednesday's game.
 
5/8/2014 9:45:00 PM
Description: Indians right fielder David Murphy enjoyed a 3-for-4 afternoon Thursday against the Twins.
Insight: It's his second three-hit game of the season. Murphy (.270, 2 HR, 19 RBI) has cooled off a bit since his hot start but he's still on pace for 88 RBI, which would be a career-high. In deeper leagues, he could be worth a look.
 
4/23/2014 11:44:00 AM
Description: Fantasy owners should avoid Cleveland right fielder David Murphy on Wednesday.
Insight: That's because of his dreadful batting average against Royals starter Jason Vargas (.091 in 22 at bats). Murphy has gotten off to a nice start (.288, 2 HR, 15 RBI) but we wouldn't expect much from him on Wednesday.
 
Hot4/12/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: Indians right fielder David Murphy (2-5) collected four RBI Saturday in a 12-6 victory over the White Sox.
Insight: David Murphy the power-hitter? So far the 32-year-old is on pace for 27 jacks and 135 RBI. His career-high is only 74 RBI so fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited. We'll see if Murphy can stay hot Sunday in the series finale.
 
Hot4/8/2014 10:24:00 PM
Description: Indians right fielder David Murphy followed up his four-hit game Sunday with two more hits, including his first homer with Cleveland, in three at-bats Tuesday against the Padres.
Insight: Murphy also had a double and scored three runs. The Rangers tasked Murphy, who hit .304 with 15 homers in 2012, with replacing Josh Hamilton last season, but he batted .220 with 13 homers and a .656 OPS. He's trying to bounce back in Cleveland.
 
4/6/2014 7:02:00 PM
Description: Indians right fielder David Murphy swatted four hits Sunday in a loss to Minnesota.
Insight: Murphy had just two hits in 14 at bats this season prior to Sunday. It's the veteran's first four-hit game since June 27, 2012.
 
11/19/2013 10:30:00 PM
Description: David Murphy is headed to Cleveland. The former Texas outfielder has agreed to a two-year deal worth $10 million. SOURCE: Dallas Morning News
Insight: It's not an ideal landing spot as Murphy seems destined for a platoon with the equally inconsistent Drew Stubbs in right field. Murphy batted just .220 across 142 games last season, his lowest average in eight seasons in MLB.
 
9/4/2013 11:25:00 AM
Description: Rangers left fielder David Murphy faces an unfavorable matchup Wednesday against Oakland starter Jarrod Parker.
Insight: The A's righthander has limited Murphy to three hits in 17 at bats (.176 AVG). Murphy (.222, 13 HR, 43 RBI) is having an awful season. Right now, he's hitting 54 points below his career average (.276).
 
8/28/2013 10:00:00 AM
Description: Texas outfielder David Murphy is the rare hitter who can produce against Seattle ace Felix Hernandez.
Insight: Murphy is 24-for-73 (.329) with three homers and 16 RBI against "King Felix." The Rangers outfielder has struggled with the bat, hitting just .221 this season with a .658 OPS which is well below last season's production level.
 
8/17/2013 11:35:00 AM
Description: Texas outfielder David Murphy is the rare hitter who can produce against Seattle ace Felix Hernandez.
Insight: Murphy is 23-for-71 (.324) with three homers against "King Felix." The Rangers outfielder has struggled with the bat, hitting just .222 this season with a .664 OPS which is well below last season's production level.
 
7/12/2013 10:13:00 AM
Description: Texas outfielder David Murphy doesn't get much notice with all the personalities on the Rangers team, but you should pay attention to him on Friday in a favorable matchup..
Insight: Murphy is 9-for-20 (.450) with four homers and eight RBI versus Detroit right-hander Doug Fister. Given the starting job when Josh Hamilton jumped to the Angels, Murphy has struggled with a low batting average (.221), but has knocked out 10 homers.
 
7/4/2013 10:52:00 AM
Description: Texas outfielder David Murphy has performed well against Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma, going 5-for-15 with two doubles and a homer against the righty.
Insight: Murphy was handed a starting job when Josh Hamilton signed with the Angels, but it has not gone well for the lefty-swinging outfielder. He's hitting .224 with a .665 OPS, and Texas just signed Manny Ramirez to a minor league deal. Yes, that Manny Ramirez.
 
5/25/2013 11:16:00 AM
Description: Texas outfielder David Murphy is a career .303 hitter (20-for-66) with a pair of home runs against Seattle ace Felix Hernandez.
Insight: Murphy has been a platoon player over the last few seasons, but he was handed a starting job after Josh Hamilton signed with the Angels. He has hit just .223 with a .674 OPS, but this matchup might help his numbers.
 
Cold5/19/2013 10:37:00 AM
Description: If you have held onto David Murphy through his crippling slump this season, Sunday would be a good day to start him. He'll face Tigers starter Doug Fister.
Insight: Murphy has been a platoon player over the last few seasons, but he was handed a starting job after Josh Hamilton signed with the Angels. He has hit just .205 with a .617 OPS. Murphy does have a .444 average (8-for-18) with four homers and eight RBI against Fister, however.
 
Cold5/3/2013 4:49:00 PM
Description: Texas left fielder David Murphy is not in the starting lineup Friday against Boston for the fourth straight game.
Insight: Murphy was handed a starting job after Josh Hamilton signed with the Angels but he is hitting .174 with two homers in 92 at-bats. Boston's Felix Doubront is the fourth straight lefty starter Texas has faced, leaving Murphy marooned on the bench in favor of Jeff Baker.
