Michael Brantley, David Murphy in Indians lineup on Sunday
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Michael Brantley starts his second straight game in left field for the Indians, on Sunday. Brantley, who battled injury earlier in the month, is hitting third in the Indians' lineup.
David Murphy gets his third straight start at three different positions. After playing left and right field the last two days, Murphy gets the start at DH, batting sixth.
Indians' David Murphy gets rare start in LF due to Brantley injury

|(4/9/15) Indians outfielder David Murphy drew the start in left field Thursday against the Astros with Michael Brantley sidelined due to a back injury. Murphy moved to right field last season when he signed with the Indians and started in left field Thursday for just the third time with Cleveland.
"Left field has always been like a second home to me," Murphy said, per Cleveland.com. "Most of my time in Texas, I played left field. I think going from left to right was a challenge for me after playing so much left.
"But I feel like I haven't forgotten how to play left, especially here, where left field is so small. I'm going to step back out there and feel right at home."
Indians' David Murphy singles in return to lineup Wednesday

|(3/25/15) Indians outfielder David Murphy went 1 for 4 with a single in his return to the lineup Wednesday after being sidelined for a few days with an ankle injury.
Murphy served as the designated hitter Wednesday. He twisted his ankle in Friday's game but said Monday he'd have been playing on it if it were the regular season. Murphy is 7 for 32 with two walks this spring.

|(3/24/15) Indians outfielder David Murphy is expected to line up as the designated hitter Wednesday after being sidelined with a twisted right ankle, manager Terry Francona said according to MLB.com.
Murphy suffered the injury during Friday's game and was believed to need a few more days to fully recover.
Indians OF David Murphy sidelined due to ankle injury
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Indians outfielder David Murphy said he twisted his right ankle during his last spring game Friday against the Angels, per MLB.com.
He said Monday he thinks it might only be a few more days before he is back in action. He added he would be playing if it were the regular season.
Murphy is batting .214 (6 for 28) with no extra-base hits and three RBI in 10 spring games.
|2014 summary: David Murphy settled in as the regular right fielder in his first season with the Indians, and he was able to maintain steady playing time despite an extended cold snap that lasted from May to July. Just as Murphy started to turn his season around in August, batting .387 in his first nine games in the month, he was dispatched to the disabled list with a strained oblique. Murphy returned in early September, and he finished with a .262 batting average, eight home runs and 58 RBI.|
Playing time status: Murphy will be in line for a starting role again in 2015, but the Indians have the depth to shift him to a fourth outfielder role if he does not produce.
2015 outlook: Though Murphy has managed to get fairly regular playing time the last few seasons, his Fantasy allure, which was never great to start with, is on the wane. He used to have some appeal as a mild power/speed threat, but he no longer provides much of either. He is strictly AL-only material at this point.
