by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Indians outfielder David Murphy has been mired in a hitting slump for a few weeks, batting just .065 (2 for 31) in his last nine games entering Sunday vs. Detroit.

"I've definitely shown in the past that I can be pretty bad when I'm bad," Murphy said with a laugh on Sunday morning, per MLB.com. "Every player is going through rough stretches over the course of a season. I wasn't panicking by any means. But it's definitely frustrating and annoying when you go so long without really having any quality at-bats."

Indians manager Terry Francona also isn't worried about Murphy's recent slide.

"It's unbelievable when he gets to two strikes," Francona said, "how he can waste pitches or get the head of the bat [to the ball]. Murphy understands. It's the ebb and flow. He'll got hot. Nobody wants to go through [a slump], but hitters do. He's been through it before. He'll be fine. He'll get his hits."

David Murphy still a tough sell


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/21/2014) With another home run Wednesday against the Tigers -- his second in as many games -- David Murphy's overall numbers now look awfully respectable. He's batting .294 with five homers and an .843 OPS, which puts him on pace for better than the 2012 numbers that made him a sleeper as an everyday player heading into 2013.

The problem? The "everyday" status was a key to his sleeper appeal then, and as things stand now, he's not playing every day for the Indians, having sat for Ryan Raburn in each of their last two games against left-handed pitchers.

Besides, even though his overall numbers look good, most of his production has been limited to two short spurts -- a six-game stretch in early April in which he hit .421 (8 for 19) with two home runs and this latest six-game stretch in which he's hitting .500 (14 for 28) with three home runs. Otherwise, he's been only a .208 (20 for 96) hitter this year.

Obviously, he needs to be owned in AL-only leagues, but in anything deeper, let's wait and see some consistency before diving in.
