Latest Update Marlon Byrd (foot) said he is fine and expects to play Wednesday afternoon Tue Jul, 29, 09:13 PM
Is a solid hitter and run producer with power and base-running ability. Works hard to improve his game. Can play all three outfield positions.
Flaws: : Strikeouts can be a problem and he doesn't walk a lot. Can make his share of mistakes as a fielder. Can run a little too hot and cold at times.
A name mentioned in trade rumors throughout baseball, Byrd fouled a ball off his foot on Monday and sat out Tuesday's contest. He is one name that will likely have a new home by Thursday afternoon. The Pirates, Mariners, and Royals have all been linked to the veteran outfielder.Analyst: David Kerr
After 11-straight days of being in the lineup, Byrd will get a day off with the Phillies stacking their left-handed hitters up against right-hander Dillon Gee. He'll be available off the bench and back in the lineup Wednesday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Byrd could add some pop off the bench as a reserve outfielder for the Pirates, with 20 home runs currently to his credit in just over 400 at bats. He could also free up Josh Harrison to play more at third base. Bastardo has not been as sharp as he was in 2013, but he still boasts a great strikeout rate, and a decent 1.24 WHIP, although he does have a slightly elevated ERA for a set-up man at 4.17.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
It has been another good season for Byrd who has now posted back to back 20 home run seasons after having just one previous season where he hit 20 home runs. Overall Byrd is hitting .269 with 53 runs, 20 home runs, and 60 RBI.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
