Description: Texas DH Donnie Murphy reached base four times in Saturday's win against the Tigers.
Insight: Saturday was Murphy's first game since suffering a neck strain on May 7th. Though he should see regular at bats with Prince Fielder out of the lineup, Murphy (.230, 2 HR, 9 RBI) isn't someone fantasy owners can count on for consistent production.
