David Murphy was officially introduced as the newest outfielder for the Cleveland Indians on Monday and heaped praise on the Indians organization, but also on his time in Texas. Murphy said he was not offered any kind of firm contract from the Rangers prior to the 2013 season, though the two sides discussed the possibility.

Late Tuesday night the Indians agreed to terms with 32-year-old outfielder David Murphy, according to several reports. The contract is believed to be worth $12 million over two years with a club option for a third year.

However, he really makes his money hitting right-handed hitting to the tune of a...
