Murphy got the start at DH Saturday, going 2-for-3 with a triple, two runs scored and an RBI.

He continues to rake against righties, and Murphy is now slashing .339/.381/.492 on the season in 124 at-bats. His playing time is limited by his role, but in deeper formats and DFS leagues on days when you know he'll be in the lineup, he's got plenty of value.

Murphy went 2-for-4 out of the clean-up spot with two runs scored and an RBI in the 10-8 win over Texas on Saturday.

Murphy is a strict platoon player, but against righties, he'a an absolute killer. All but one at-bat this season has come against righties and if he secures the clean-up role against righties, he'a always a great play in daily formats.

Murphy will get the start at DH Wednesday against the Astros, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports.

He has a .278/.344/.459 slash line against righties for his career, so it makes sense that the Indians chose to get him a start with righty Scott Feldman on the mound for Houston. Murphy and Ryan Raburn will both see a couple starts per week while Nick Swisher (knee) is sidelined.
