Marlon Byrd leading Reds in spring average
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) Outfielder Marlon Byrd is making a good impression on his new team.
Acquired in an offseason trade with the Phillies, Byrd is leading the Reds in hitting with a .417 average. He had a five-game hitting streak entering Sunday, when he wasn't in the starting lineup, and had three multi-hit games in a row.
"I think he's been great," manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com's Mark Sheldon. "I think he values the at-bats and the time playing left field. He puts in a real good workday. He fits in really well with our group. I think it's a seamless transition to our organization."
Byrd still has a few things he wants to work on.
"I need to start driving the ball to right-center field and start seeing more sliders and more curveballs," he said. "When I'm able to stay over the middle of the field consistently, I'll be good."
Report: Phillies, Reds discussed Marlon Byrd trade
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/29/14) The Phillies were close to trading outfielder Marlon Byrd to the Reds, but the deal fell through, according to Fox Sports, which is further reporting that trade talks could be rekindled.
Byrd is coming off a second straight productive season in which he compiled a slash line of .264/.312/.445 with a career-high 25 home runs and 85 RBI.
Orioles on Ryan Howard's pre-approved list for trades
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/13/14) The Orioles and the Phillies discussed a package deal that included outfielder Marlon Byrd and first baseman Ryan Howard during the winter meetings, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports Saturday.
According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, the Orioles are one of eight teams on Howard's pre-approved list for trades. An American League team seems like an ideal landing spot for the veteran, who could spend the final two years of his contract as a designated hitter. However, according to Heyman, there's "not a lot there at the moment" between the two clubs.
Howard has two years and a guaranteed $60 million remaining on his contract, with a $23 million option for 2017. He slashed .223/.310/.380 with 23 homers, 95 RBI while also striking out 190 times over 569 at-bats last season
Report: Orioles, Phillies to discuss Marlon Byrd trade Tuesday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/9/14) The Orioles and Phillies are expected to meet Tuesday to discuss a deal that would send veteran outfielder Marlon Byrd to Baltimore, sources told Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. The 37-year-old hit .264/.312/.445 with 25 homers and 85 RBI over 591 at-bats last season.
Report: Phillies open to trading outfielder Marlon Byrd
|(11/4/14) As the Phillies continue to rebuild their roster, it appears outfielder Marlon Byrd could be their next trade chip.
Byrd produced a solid .264/.312/.445 in 2014, and with a $8 million contract for 2015, he has been viewed as one of the most popular players other teams are targeting, a source told FOXsports.com
|2014 summary: On the surface, Marlon Byrd had a reassuring follow-up season to his 2013 late-career breakout in which he hit .291 with 24 home runs and 88 RBI for the Mets and Pirates. Byrd's 2014 counting stats with the Phillies (25 home runs, 85 RBI and 71 runs) were right in line with the previous season's, but he needed 59 additional at-bats to reach those levels. Also, his batting average dropped from .291 to .264, and given that he increased his strikeout rate by four percentage points, the decline could have been even worse. Byrd's one-year run with the Phillies ended when they traded him to the Reds in December.|
Playing time status: Byrd is set to serve as the Reds' everyday left fielder.
2015 outlook: Unless Byrd can turn around his surging strikeout trend, he will see his value decline even further. Given that Byrd is entering his age-37 season, it would be reasonable to expect his production to drop off. It's entirely possible he won't rank among the top 40 outfielders in terms of Fantasy value, so he can go undrafted in standard mixed Head-to-Head leagues. Byrd should still have enough left in the tank to be a late-round option for Rotisserie owners.
