Reds' Marlon Byrd doubles, homers, drives in four in win


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/5/2015) Left fielder Marlon Byrd doubled, homered and knocked in four runs Tuesday in the Reds' victory over the Pirates. 

Byrd had struggled early on in the season, hitting just .163 during the first month. 

"It's the toughest time since I turned things back around two years ago," Byrd said. "I've been putting in a lot of time in with [hitting coach] Don Long and things are slowly starting to come around."

Tuesday marked the first time this season that Byrd notched two extra-base hits in one game.

"The home run was exciting and the double in the ninth inning was especially exciting because it's a lot easier to manage a game with a six-run lead than a one-run lead or being down a run," Reds manager Bryan Price said about Byrd.


Reds' Hamilton, Byrd, Mesoraco out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Reds outfielders Billy Hamilton and Marlon Byrd are joining catcher Devin Mesoraco (hip) on the bench for Sunday's game against the Braves.

Hamilton is getting a break after making 11 straight starts out of the leadoff spot, while Byrd has seen 11 straight starts in left field. It's just a regular day off for both players, who will get a two-day break due to the team's scheduled off-day Monday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Both Hamilton and Byrd are available if needed Sunday. With the pair out, Skip Schumaker will lead off and play left field, while Brennan Boesch will bat seventh and play center field.

Mesoraco hasn't appeared in the starting lineup since the first week of the season, as he's continued to rehab from a left hip impingement while remaining on the active roster.

The Reds are road favorites (-142) in Atlanta with Johnny Cueto on the mound.


Todd Frazier, Marlon Byrd go deep for Reds


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Third baseman Todd Frazier and left fielder Marlon Byrd both hit solo home runs in the Reds' win over Atlanta on Saturday. 

Byrd went deep in the sixth inning for his third homer and ninth RBI of the year. He went 2 for 3, improving his average to .181. 

Frazier homered in the seventh, his eighth home run and 17th RBI of the year. He went 1 for 5 and is hitting .225 for the season. 


Marlon Byrd shows signs of heating up for Reds


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Marlon Byrd slumping at plate for Reds


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) 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
(4/9/2015) 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
(3/22/2015) 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

Orioles on Ryan Howard's pre-approved list for trades


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2014) 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.

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
