Latest Update John Mayberry received a cortisone shot in his left wrist on Wednesday. Thu Jul, 24, 08:38 AM
Has excellent raw power at the plate. Is also capable of playing all three outfield positions, as well as first base. Is a good all-around athlete. Can come off the bench.
Flaws: : His swing is a little long, so he has a tendency to strike out too much. Doesn't draw enough walks to compensate, either. Does not make the most of his ability.
After receiving a cortisone shot, Mayberry will sit for the next week and test his ailing wrist shortly after. If the shot is not successful, the team will have to explore other options, which may lead to a longer stint on the disabled list beyond the minimum 15 days. Analyst: Matthew Beck
With the Phillies likely being sellers at the trade deadline, there are many members, including Mayberry, who are likely available. Mayberry would be a great fit for either the Yankees or Red Sox, but will likely remain in a bench role if he ends up leaving Philadelphia further limiting his fantasy value. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Mayberry has done a great job filling in for Be Revere in center field the last two games, but just doesn't receive enough at-bats on a regular basis to warrant fantasy consideration. The Phillies are expected to trade off a lot of their pieces prior to the trade deadline, with Mayberry being one of them, so if he is able to land with a new team him fantasy value may go up depending on the destination.
