Indians David Murphy will have extended role against Rangers
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/27/15) Indians' David Murphy will start in right field for just the fourth time this season on Wednesday against the Rangers.
Murphy, who sees the majority of his playing time as a designated hitter, is hitting .322 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 93 at-bats this season.
David Murphy slots in as DH for Indians on Monday
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/25/15) David Murphy will step into the DH role on Monday as the Indians face the Rangers, just the second time in nine games that Murphy will be in that role.
Murphy will hit fifth in Cleveland's lineup against Texas starter Phil Klein. He has only faced Klein once, but has a hit in that lone at-bat. Murphy is hitting .529 with two doubles and two RBIs from the five-hole.
Two other Indians starters, Lonnie Chisenhall and Michael Brantley, have also just faced Klein once, and both have hit solo home runs against the pitcher.
Nick Swisher, Ryan Raburn not in Indians' lineup for Saturday
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Both Nick Swisher and Ryan Raburn are not in the Indians' lineup for Saturday, as Michael Brantley will start in left field and bat third and David Murphy will serve as the designated hitter and bat cleanup.|
Rayburn, a utility outfielder, suffered a bruised knee in Friday's game while Swisher returned from the disabled list in early May and had DH'd in eight of the Indians' 10 games before Saturday.
Indians DH David Murphy elevated to fifth in Wednesday lineup
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) A favorable matchup has Indians designated hitter David Murphy batting fifth Wednesday for just the second time all season.
Murphy is set to face St. Louis veteran right-hander John Lackey, against whom he is batting .440 (11-for-25) lifetime.
Indians CF Michael Bourn not starting Tuesday vs. Cardinals
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/12/15) Indians center fielder Michael Bourn is not in the starting lineup on Tuesday. There is no mention of an injury or other issue here, so it looks like manager Terry Francona is just giving the struggling Bourn a day off. Bourn has actually seen his batting average rise to .218, as he is currently riding a very modest three-game hit streak.
Michael Brantley is moving over to center field, while David Murphy handles left field. Brandon Moss returns to the starting lineup after being rested on Sunday. He will bat fourth and play right field.
|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.
