David Murphy reaches base four times in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Indians outfielder David Murphy put together a big game Saturday, in a 6-2 win over the Tigers.

Murphy reached base safely in all four of his trips to the plate, as he finished the game 2 for 2 with two walks. He drove in two runs and scored one as well in the win.

Murphy is hitting just .247/.311/.368 in a down year, as he has just six home runs in 89 games. 


David Murphy embraces new month with three hits


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Indians right fielder David Murphy was certainly happy Tuesday night to see the calendar turn from June to July. He broke free from a numbing 2-for-49 slide with three hits against the Angels.

Murphy doubled in a run in the sixth and singled in another in the eighth to raise his average to .250. It marked his first multi-hit game since June 8.


David Murphy not worried about latest hitting slump


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 raking for Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Indians right fielder David Murphy has gained steadiness as the season has progressed and remains on pace for a career season.

Murphy has hit safely in 13 of his last 15 games and is 18 of 54 for that time for a .333 mark. He owns a .284/.340/.433 stat line. He also has 37 RBI, putting him on pace for more than 90 on the season, which would easily shatter his career-high.


David Murphy cranks out three hits vs. Texas


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Indians outfielder David Murphy made his presence felt at the plate Saturday afternoon against the Rangers in Arlington.

Murphy doubled in the second, singled in the sixth and singled again in the seventh. He added a sacrifice fly in the fourth and finished 3 for 4 with a run scored and an RBI in his team's 8-3 victory. He is hitting .286 with five homers and 35 RBI in 196 at-bats.

David Murphy roller coaster streaking down


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) The peak-and-valley season of Indians right fielder David Murphy has hit another valley. The second-most productive hitter on the team this season behind Michael Brantley has just two hits in his last 23 at-bats as his average has dipped from .294 to .268.

Murphy remains on pace for about a 100 RBI, which should shatter his career best. He has fanned 22 times in 164 at-bats.


David Murphy smacks fifth home run in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Indians outfielder David Murphy went 2 for 6 with a home run and four RBI in his team's 11-10 win over the Tigers Wednesday.

Murphy's two-run home run, his second blast in as many games, came just in the nick of time, evening the score at 9-9 in the bottom of the ninth inning. He also tallied RBIs in the first and second innings on a sacrifice fly and a double, respectively. Murphy has hit .294/.360/.483 with five home runs and 30 RBI in 143 at-bats.


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.


David Murphy homers in win vs. Tigers Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Indians outfielder David Murphy extended his hitting streak to six games with a solo home run in his team's 6-2 win over the Tigers Tuesday.

Murphy finished the game 1 for 3 with a walk and the seventh-inning home run. He's 13 for for 26 over his last six games, including a five-hit game and a three-hit game. Murphy has hit .292/.364/.460 with four home runs and 26 RBI in 137 at-bats.


David Murphy drives in five in five-hit performance Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Indians outfielder David Murphy had an excellent day at the plate Wednesday, going 5 for 6 with three doubles and five RBI in his team's 15-4 win over the Blue Jays.

It was Murphy's first five-hit game since going 5 for 5 in a game in September of 2010. The huge performance boosts his line to .273/.350/.413 with two home runs and 24 RBI in 121 at-bats.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Murphy owns a six-game hitting streak and a stat line of .288/.348/.492. He is batting .333 in his last 45 at-bats and is already one-third of the way to his 45 RBI of a year ago.


David Murphy homers, drives in four Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2014) Indians outfielder David Murphy went 2 for 5 with a triple, a home run and four RBI in his team's 12-6 win over the White Sox Saturday.

Elliot Johnson in, David Murphy out of Friday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) The Indians have benched right fielder David Murphy in favor of Elliot Johnson for the game Friday night against tough White Sox left-hander Chris Sale. Johnson, who went 0 for 4 as the leadoff hitter in his last start, will bat ninth.

Johnson could be on the verge of a demotion upon the return early next week of rehabbing center fielder Michael Bourn.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
