Marlon Byrd an option in center for Phillies


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) The Phillies have received little production from outfielders this season, which has manager Ryne Sandberg thinking about making some changes.

The Phillies are receiving just a .561 combined OPS out of left fielders this season, with the center field options posting a .646 OPS that isn't much better. In light of this, Sandberg told MLB.com he is considering moving Marlon Byrd to center, a position he thinks he can man despite not playing it full time since 2011.

"He's an option for center field, yeah," Sandberg said about Byrd. "He has experience there. From what I've seen, his first-step quickness and his reads are outstanding. And he has an above-average arm."

Byrd moving to center would be dependent on Darin Ruf returning from an oblique strain and holding down one of the corner spots. Byrd has been a rare bright spot for the Phillies, hitting .311/.344/.508 in 122 at-bats.

Marlon Byrd ready to prove skeptics wrong


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2014) Coming off one of the best seasons of his career at 35 years old, new Phillies outfielder Marlon Byrd is going to face a lot of questions about whether or not he will be able to repeat his offensive success in 2014.

Byrd knows the skeptics will be out in full force after he served a 50-game suspension in 2012 for using a performance-enhancing substance.

"Everything last year until I retire will be looked at that way because I did test positive," he told MLB.com. "The guys that don’t like talking about it are the ones that were trying to cheat or trying to beat the system. I wasn’t. I was stupid. I took something. I didn’t do my due diligence. It’s as simple as that, so it’s easy for me to talk about it because I have nothing to hide."
