Donnie Murphy overdue for reality check


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/23/2013) Thinking about adding Donnie Murphy as a sneaky starter at third base for Fantasy Week 22 (Aug. 26-Sept. 1)? Think again.

The Cubs have some of the toughest matchups of any team next week, facing true aces Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw and Cliff Lee, but even if they didn't, you couldn't expect Murphy's unprecedented power surge -- eight home runs in 58 at-bats since his promotion Aug. 3 -- to continue. Not even he does.

"Don't get used to that," he said after his first two-homer game Aug. 7. Of course, that was five homers ago.

But really, don't. It's not that the 30-year-old has no power, but his numbers before his promotion were about as good as he's ever had in the minors. And 12 home runs in 302 at-bats in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League should not translate to eight in 58 at-bats in the majors.

If you happened to pick up Murphy a week or two ago and have already reaped the rewards, lucky you. Otherwise, you've probably missed the boat.
