John Mayberry isn't platooning in center field
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (5/7/2013) Phillies outfielder John Mayberry started in center field for the second time in five games Monday against the Giants. However, manager Charlie Manuel quickly shot down the idea of platooning Mayberry in center field while starter Ben Revere continues to struggle offensively, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
"(Revere) hit .294 in the big leagues in 500 at-bats last year," Manuel said. "He can hit. He's scuffling right now."
Manuel said he chose to start Mayberry Monday because of the matchup against left-handed hurler Madison Bumgarner. Mayberry's leadoff single in the second inning ignited a three-run rally off Bumgarner.
"I can play Mayberry some against lefties," Manuel said. "When I want to rest (Domonic) Brown or Ben, I can use him. I'm looking for someone to help us."
John Mayberry's diversity expands playing time
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (5/3/2013) With Delmon Young back in the lineup for the Phillies and in right field, John Mayberry has added center field to his wide range of positions. Mayberry has started four of his past five games in center and manager Charlie Manuel said he could mix into a rotation with struggling regular Ben Revere at the spot when Revere is healthy.
Capable of playing all three outfield positions and first base, Mayberry has appeared in all but three of the Phillies' 29 games this season and has 10 extra-base hits. He had a three-game hitting streak end with an 0-for-3 day while starting in center field Thursday against Miami.

John Mayberry ends homer drought
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (4/27/2013) Phillies outfielder John Mayberry crushed a solo homer in the fifth inning and finished 1 for 4 during a 9-4 rout of the Mets on Saturday. Mayberry's homer was his second of the season and first since April 9 -- also against New York -- and came directly after teammate Domonic Brown went deep on a three-run blast.
"I figured he'd try to get ahead with a fastball. I just wanted to try not to do too much with it," Mayberry said. "Obviously, it's kind of exciting when a guy in front of you hits a homer, but you don't want to think about trying to follow it up. It just happened."
John Mayberry moved to two-spot
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (4/22/2013) For the second straight outing, Phillies outfielder John Mayberry was slotted as the No. 2 hitter in the lineup Monday against Pittsburgh, a move prompted in part by his five-game hitting streak. Mayberry went 1 for 4 with a walk and a run scored from the spot during Sunday's win over St. Louis, and now owns a .316 average and .409 on-base percentage.
"He's been getting on base," manager Charlie Manuel told the Philadelphia Daily News. "He's been getting some hits. He stole a base last night. He's got six walks. You guys talk about us not getting walks, he's got six of them."

John Mayberry being platooned
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com (4/8/2013) With Delmon Young currently on the disabled list, Phillies outfielder John Mayberry is being platooned with Laynce Nix in right field.
Mayberry was thought to have an opportunity at a larger role with Young sidelined, but that does not appear to be the case. Unless Mayberry shows a lot in a limited role, it seems like Young will push him out of regular playing time once he's ready to return from his injury.
