Reds | Marlon Byrd locked in at the dish

Sat, 09 May 2015 05:08:49 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd is 8-for-15 over his past four games with exactly two hits in each outing. During the span, Byrd has four runs, a double, a triple, three home runs, six RBI and a stolen base with a .533/.588/1.333 slash line.

Fantasy Tip: Bird is the word, and while it is a small sample size, Byrd ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has 49 home runs with a .277 batting average over the past two seasons. He is capable. Even at 37, Byrd is moving the fantasy needle, and he is a nice low-priced option for FantasyScore players while raking.

Reds | Marlon Byrd could stick in two-hole

Thu, 07 May 2015 16:17:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd could stay in the two-hole in the lineup long term, according to manager Bryan Price. Byrd has driven in five of the team's 10 runs in the two games since moving to the No. 2 spot. "But things can change if we get Devin (Mesoraco) back behind the plate. When Zack's back full-time. At this point in time, I plan on staying with it because it's been productive," Price said.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has been jump started with the move to the top of the lineup, hitting two home runs in the two games he's spent there. As long as he's hitting second, Byrd's FantasyScore value will be on the rise.
