by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) 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
(5/25/2015) 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.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/16/2015) 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
(5/13/2015) A favorable matchup has Indians designated hitter David Murphy batting fifth Wednesday for just the second time all season.

Indians CF Michael Bourn not starting Tuesday vs. Cardinals


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/12/2015) 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.


David Murphy goes 4 for 4 in Indians' win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) David Murphy got a rare start in right field and made the most of it in the Indians' win on Sunday. 

Murphy went 4 for 4, improving his average to .298. He hit his third double of the season. 

"It's a weird game in the fact that my first at-bat wasn't great," Murphy said. "I got one to kind of fall in, and was just kind of able to build momentum from there."


Nick Swisher could play field for Indians soon


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Since returning from the disabled list, Indians first baseman/outfielder Nick Swisher has played designated hitter. Manager Terry Francona said that could change soon.

"I've thought about that a lot," Francona said, "trying to figure out when is right and when is not. At some point, he'll play the outfield."

Swisher's playing time will impact David Murphy, who is likely to see more time on the bench. "We told Murphy, 'You're going to have to be a little patient,'" Francona said. "And he will."


David Murphy replaces Brandon Moss in Indians lineup


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Indians right fielder Brandon Moss was not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Minnesota. Moss had started in right the last 11 games for Cleveland. 

He's replaced by David Murphy, who makes his third start of the year in right and first since April 18. 

Murphy will bat fifth in the order. Third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall moves up one spot to replace Moss at cleanup. It's Chisenhall's first time in the four-hole this season.  

The Indians are -160 money-line favorites at home against Minnesota. 


Indians manager Terry Francona loads up on lefties Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) With a right-hander slated to toe the rubber for the Royals on Thursday, Indians manager Terry Francona has produced a heavy lefty-hitting lineup.

David Murphy returns to the starting lineup as the designated hitter, while Nick Swisher gets a rest after playing in two straight since returning from a DL stint.

Michael Bourn, who will be benched against lefties for the near future, was back in the lineup batting seventh and playing center field. 

Switch-hitter Jose Ramirez slides in at shorstop to replace Mike Aviles. The Indians' lineup contains just one natural right-handed hitter, catcher Roberto Perez.


Eric Campbell misses second straight for Mets


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Murphy did not leave the game due to injury, but rather manager Terry Francona put Ryan Raburn in to hit against left-hander Carlos Rodon. Raburn is a right-handed hitter, while Murphy bats left-handed.

Murphy's home run was a solo shot leading off the fifth inning. It was also his first hit in seven games.

Michael Brantley, David Murphy in Indians lineup on Sunday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Indians' David Murphy gets rare start in LF due to Brantley injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) 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."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians OF David Murphy sidelined due to ankle injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.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.

David Murphy's role unclear for Indians heading into season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Indians outfielder David Murphy is heading into his second season with the club and is trying to figure out what his role will be with the team.

Murphy said Sunday he got the chance to speak with general manager Chris Antonetti when the team traded for Brandon Moss in December.

"Communication is huge just in general in this game," Murphy said. "It's nice to go into the season knowing how he feels, and I'm sure he's speaking for the front office and the coaching staff. Just having an idea of how they feel about it, and giving me a chance to voice my opinion in how I feel about it, the lines of communication are open. I definitely think that's a good thing. It's kind of hard to know at this point how things are going to fall into place."

Murphy, who hit .262 with eight home runs and 58 RBI in 2014, knows being traded is one option to find playing time.

"I think everybody can logically see that there's only so many spots out there for so many players," Murphy said. "I'm prepared to lose playing time, but not to the point where I'm going to get 150 at-bats. If that's the case, and that's the best-case scenario for them and for me, I'm open to [a trade]. But I feel like this team has a great chance to win, and for that reason, I would love to be here."

Indians manager Terry Francona said recently Murphy will be the right fielder in Cleveland to open the year.

"Well, it's hard to say right now, because we don't know how healthy Swish or Moss are," Francona said. "So right now, Murph's our right fielder. I don't know if that's going to change in the next month or not."


Indians' Francona: Right now, David Murphy is our right fielder


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday outfielder David Murphy is penciled in as the starting right fielder since there are too many unknowns with Nick Swisher (knee) and Brandon Moss (hip) coming off surgeries.

"Right now, Murph's our right fielder," Francona said, per MLB.com.

Murphy started a team-high 109 games in right field for Cleveland in 2014. He hit .262 with eight home runs, 25 doubles and 58 RBI in 129 games.
