Latest Update Tigers and Reds are reportedly interested in Phillies Outfielder Marlon Byrd. Tue Nov, 11, 09:39 AM
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.
Both teams are currently in the market for a corner outfielder and the Phillies have been toying with the idea of pawning off Byrd onto someone else for the last year. Continue to monitor the situation. A move to the Reds should keep Byrd's value the same but there should be concerns regarding his power holding up with a move to spacious Comerica Park in Detroit.Analyst: Howard Bender
The 36 year old Byrd hit .264 with 71 runs, 25 home runs and 85 RBI for the Phillies this season.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Byrd's .266 average is decent for the year, but his 25 homers and 84 RBIs are a pleasant surprise. Byrd is getting older every day, but somehow he continues to produce at the big-league level. The 37-year old will hope to end the year with some more games like this.Analyst: Colby Conway
Byrd has now hit 28 doubles on the year, and the three RBIs give him 83 for the year. Byrd is hitting .264 on the year, and other than Ben Revere, he has been one of the most consistent outfielders for Philadelphia this year.Analyst: Colby Conway
