Lineups: No more David Murphy in RF

August, 6, 2013
ANAHEIM, Calif. – Don’t expect to see David Murphy in right field again for the Rangers.

Murphy misplayed a couple of balls in his first game in right field this season during the Rangers’ win Monday night. Manager Ron Washington will find other alternatives to replace Nelson Cruz in the field, leaving Murphy in left field. Engel Beltre will play right field Tuesday night.

Fitzsimmons and Durrett cover every angle of the Nelson Cruz suspension and the impact it has on the Rangers and MLB.
