Phillies | Marlon Byrd has retooled swing

Fri, 28 Mar 2014 13:23:30 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Marlon Byrd retooled his entire swing before the 2013 season after he met hitting guru Doug Latta. "Marlon was really working against his body. He was coming around the ball. He was hitting in a real small zone. A hitter has to handle velocity, late movement, and location. So being able to stay in the zone longer gives him an advantage. If you create that energy through the ball, it gives you a little more lift. Obviously, the results speak for themselves," Latta said. As a result, Byrd became more of a fly-ball hitter.

Phillies | Focusing on Peter Bourjos again

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 17:28:43 -0800

The Philadelphia Phillies are looking for one more outfielder, even after signing free-agent OF Marlon Byrd. The Philadelphia Phillies have long coveted Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Peter Bourjos, but a deal hasn't happened in the past because a match doesn't exist between the teams. The Angels are looking for young, affordable starting pitching, and the Phillies are considered thin at that spot. If the teams are to agree on a deal, it likely will require a third team getting involved.

Mets | Trade Marlon Byrd, John Buck

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 11:59:21 -0700

The New York Mets traded OF Marlon Byrd and C John Buck to the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for INF 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.
