Pirates | Acquire Marlon Byrd, John Buck

The Pittsburgh Pirates acquired OF Marlon Byrd and C John Buck from the New York Mets in exchange for INF prospect Dilson Herrera and a player to be named later.

Fantasy Tip: This puts Byrd in a better lineup, where he should play regularly. This probably means the injury to Starling Marte (hand) is significant, but we'll update you as that comes along. Buck will back up Russell Martin and doesn't have mixed-league value. Expect Lucas Duda and a mishmash of other players to fill in for Byrd. Duda is the best option to acquire in mixed leagues, but it'll be messy.
