Latest Update Byrd adds two RBI in losing effort Wed Jul, 23, 06:56 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.
Byrd, who's name has been coming up in a lot of trade talks of late, made the most of his only hit on Tuesday night, as he now sits on a .266 average with 19 home runs and 57 RBI through 383 at-bats. It appears if he was to be dealt before the trade deadline the likely suitor would be the Cincinnati Reds, and if he was to join the likes of Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier, we could expect to see the same type of production we have since since Byrd made his return with the Phillies. The other team trying to make a play on Byrd is the Seattle Mariners, but that would be a bad landing spot as far as fantasy base ball is concerned, so hopefully he lands with the Reds if moved at all.

Once again, Byrd is a prime candidate to be traded this month. No matter where he signs, he will be a great source of power and run production. Analyst: David Kerr
The Reds have been shopping around for both a power-hitting outfielder and a left-handed reliever, and the Phillies have what would fulfill their needs on the trading block. A move to the Reds would not change Byrd's fantasy outlook much, considering you pretty much know what you are going to get form him at this point in his career, so if the Phillies decide to move him to Cincinnati fantasy owners have little to worry about.

Marlon continues to mash as he hit his 19th home run of the season and seventh over his last 26 games, unfortunately for he and the Phillies many of them are of the solo variety as was the case again on Sunday as the lone RBI was just his 12th over that 26 game span. Byrd's 19 home runs are second most among NL outfielders this season behind only Marlins Giancarlo Stanton's 23, which places him in a tie for the overall league lead with Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo.Analyst: Michael Pichan
