Spring Training moves on and Opening Day is now less than two weeks away. Managers, coaches, and GM's are pouring over player reports in an effort to decide who stays with the parent club and who drops back to the minors.
David Murphy seems bent on making that decision a tough one for Texas. Here he is pictured on card number 254. He played just 43 games for the Rangers in 2007 but hit a blistering .340 in 103 at-bats. He has jumped right out of the gate this spring with a .417 average including four home runs and 15 RBI.
Overshadowed only by Josh Hamilton, David is making a real run at being on the roster on Opening Day. If he can keep hitting like he has since coming to Texas his bat can make a serious argument in his favor.
