Latest Update Byrd is not in the Phillies' starting lineup on Sunday. Sun Aug, 31, 09:37 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 jacked his 25th home run of the season Friday night, so this is likely just a day of rest. The Phillies will use the lefty bats of Grady Sizemore and Domonic Brown to face Mets right-hander Dillon Gee.Analyst: Howard Bender
Byrd has now homered in two of his last three games, which has given him a new career-high with 25 homers at the age of 37. Although there is nothing sexy about his production, Byrd has been a solid contributor this season, adding a .271 average and 71 RBI to his mounting home run total. He remains a must-start in all but the shallowest of league formats heading into the final month of the season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Byrd is one home run away from matching his career-high from last season. He turns 37 on August 30, and he has to be considered a risky fantasy play next season.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Byrd remains one of the more underrated outfielder out there. He's batting .269 on the year and has smacked 23 home run throughout the season this year. Few people believed that he could duplicate his 2013 season in which he smacked a career-high of 24 home runs, yet here he is just one away with a month and a half to go in the season.Analyst: Howard Bender
