Indians | David Murphy handling right-handers

Mon, 18 May 2015 14:09:18 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF David Murphy is hitting .319 (23-for-72) with three home runs and eight RBI against right-handed pitchers this season, and he has just one at-bat against a lefty in 2015. As a result, OF Michael Bourn has been benched lately to keep Murphy's bat in the lineup. Murphy is also hitting .329 (3-for-9) with two home runs and three RBI as a pinch hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has become a lineup staple for the Indians against right-handed pitchers. You should take note at FantasyScore. Murphy should start becoming a very realistic value play in your daily lineups when he's in there.

Indians | Nick Swisher out Thursday

Thu, 07 May 2015 10:06:45 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher is out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 7. OF David Murphy is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth in the order against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher just returned from the DL this week, so the Tribe is likely to ease him back into regular playing time. Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) often starts against righties, but his at-bats may be tough to come by now that Swisher is back. Murphy is a disappointing .240 (12-for-50) against righties this year, and Volquez has been strong in his new digs in KC. Look to avoid Murphy today.

Indians | David Murphy nursing ankle injury

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 18:58:42 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF David Murphy (ankle) missed his third consecutive Cactus League spring game Monday, March 23, due to the twisted ankle he suffered in a game Friday, March 20. Murphy said if it were the regular season he could have played.

Fantasy Tip: The Indians are taking it easy with Murphy, and this injury isn't something expected to hinder him into the regular season. He is worth a late-round flier in AL-only leagues as a reserve outfielder/utility option.
