Murphy finally set as everyday player for Rangers

David Murphy is finally considered an everyday player for the Texas Rangers.

Only Michael Young and Ian Kinsler have appeared in more games than Murphy for the Rangers over the past six seasons. But until this spring, Murphy had long carried the tag as being a fourth outfielder.

Murphy says he approached this spring like every other since he knows his success last season has set him up as the starting left fielder.

Murphy played 147 games last year, with 118 starts in the outfield and seven more as the designated hitter. The left-handed hitter had a .304 average with 15 home runs and 61 RBIs.

Through his first 13 spring training games before the Rangers had a day off Wednesday, Murphy hit .314 (11 for 35).
