David Murphy-

David Murphy of the Cleveland Indians could be a low-cost move for the Angels in their search for a left-handed bat that can play the outfield. Murphy a career .274 hitter has averaged 13 home runs and 61 RBI’s over the past seven season with a career OBP of .335 with an average of 42 walks per season.  Murphy can play both corner outfield spots has been known for being a very consistent hitter who does a little bit of everything at the plate.  So what is the downside of the Angels acquiring Murphy: not much.  If anything you could maybe say he doesn’t provide enough power for what the Angels need.  The other potential drawback is that he only has one more year left in his contract, a club option for $7 million in 2016.  Overall, I would like a trade for Murphy as he is a player that would fit in nicely on this team both on and off the field.  Murphy would fill the need for a left-handed bat with some power, and also be another outfielder the team could rotate between DH, RF, and LF. If the price is right I would say grab him quickly.  Grade: A-
