Wednesday was quite the day in baseball to be a Murphy; New York Mets infielder Daniel Murphy swatted his first two home runs of the season, knocking in four in a 17-1 win, while Texas Rangers outfielder David Murphy homered twice and batted in five. The Mets' Murphy has been platooning and hadn't homered in nearly a year. Generally a batting average helper, he's hitting only .274 and not a must-own in 10-team leagues, though the second-base eligibility is attractive. The Rangers' Murphy is barely owned, but is on pace for 19 home runs and 13 stolen bases. Each player is underrated in deeper formats.
