Murphy went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk, three runs scored and a strikeout in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Murphy reached base three times and came around to score all three, including on his two-run homer in the second inning. The 33-year-old is hitting just .220 since the start of September, but he's slashing .288/.331/.448 on the year with 11 homers and 38 RBI.

Murphy is not starting Monday against lefty Patrick Corbin and the Diamondbacks.

Murphy is not in the lineup against the Reds on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Murphy will take a seat with southpaw Cody Reed on the mound for Cincinnati. Over his last eight games, Murphy is just 3-for-28 (.107 average) and could benefit from receiving a day off. In his place, Javier Baez will start at second base.

Murphy will bat third in the order and start at second base against Washington on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Following a hot start with the Cubs that saw Murphy go 11-for-27 (.407 average) with two home runs and five RBI in his first five games, he's slashed just .180/.196/.320 since dating back to Aug. 28. He failed to collect a hit against the Brewers in three games this week, so manager Joe Maddon will try and move his lineup around to get Murphy and the rest of the team going. Anthony Rizzo will leadoff in his place.

Murphy is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Murphy will head to the bench for the second half of Saturday's twin bill after going 1-for-3 in Game 1. Javier Baez is covering second base in his stead, with David Bote sliding over to shortstop and Kris Bryant starting at third.

Murphy went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Murphy continued to hit well in his new uniform, as he's now batting .316 in 13 games with the Cubs, to go along with four home runs, seven RBI and 10 runs scored. With his spot atop a strong Chicago lineup, the 33-year-old infielder should be a strong fantasy contributor the rest of the way.

Murphy went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double and a run scored in Sunday's 9-0 win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Murphy continued his hot start with the Cubs, as he's collected hits in all five games he's played with his new team so far, and the 33-year-old infielder has four multi-hit efforts in that span. Murphy also looks like the new leadoff hitter in town, which should give him plenty of opportunities to score runs the rest of the way.

Murphy went 1-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Murphy connected for his second home run in as many games when he took Cincinnati starter Luis Castillo deep with a runner on in the second inning. The veteran infielder then drove in another run on a groundout in the seventh. Murphy is off to a hot start with his new team, as he's 7-for-19 over four games with two home runs, five RBI and four runs scored. He's also seemingly established himself as the Cubs' primary leadoff hitter, which should lead to solid run production with a strong lineup around him.
