Reds OF Marlon Byrd finally hits first home run
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Reds outfielder Marlon Byrd connected for his first home run this season Thursday during a 4-2 loss against the Brewers. Byrd hit a two-run homer off Kyle Lohse in the fifth inning, which gave the Reds a 2-1 lead.
Byrd entered the game Thursday mired in a 1-for-22 slump, which dropped his season average to .115. He went 1 for 3 Thursday, raising his season average to .127.
Marlon Byrd slumping at plate for Reds
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Reds outfielder Marlon Byrd was one of baseball's leading hitters in spring training, but he's tailed off at the plate since the regular season started.
Byrd is hitting .132 this season, with five base hits.
"We’re definitely going to have way more leeway with a veteran player that’s got career numbers," manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "He’s coming off a year where he hit 25 homers and drove in over 80 runs. That doesn’t just disappear because he struggles for a 10-game stretch. I’m looking forward to him breaking out and the impact it will have on our lineup, for sure. I haven’t lost any faith that he’s going to have a real nice year for us."
Reds OF Marlon Byrd drives walkoff run on fielding error
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Reds outfielder Marlon Byrd drove in the walkoff run to secure a 3-2 victory and a series sweep over the Pirates on Thursday.
Byrd smoked a line drive off the glove of Gregory Polanco for an error, allowing the game-winning run to score.
"It's been a tough couple of days with the rain and the at-bats," Byrd said after the game, per the Associated Press. "That was the first ball I hit to right field on a line."
He finished 1 for 4 with a strikeout. He is hitting .154 (2 for 13) this season.
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.
|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.
