Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd is a career .435 hitter (10-for-23) with three homers against Braves right-hander Aaron Harang.
Insight: Byrd is on a modest six-game winning streak. He has a career-high 25 homers, and still has an outside chance to eclipse his career-mark of 89 RBI, set with Texas in 2009.
 
9/24/2014 10:15:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd knocks in 84th RBI of the year.
Insight: In a year that many Phillies have disappointed, Byrd has been a pleasant surprise. He has a career-high 25 homers, and will have an outside chance to eclipse his career-mark of 89 RBI, he had with Texas in 2009.
 
9/19/2014 2:29:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd is a career .091 hitter (1-for-11) against Oakland starter Jon Lester.
Insight: He is hitting .263 with 25 home runs and 79 RBI, but has just three home runs since Aug. 9. He is one of the few Phillies playing up to expectations this year, but this in an unfavorable matchup.
 
9/12/2014 12:28:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd is a career .538 hitter (7-for-13) against Miami starter Henderson Alvarez.
Insight: He is hitting .265 with 25 home runs and 78 RBI this season and is one of the few Phillies playing up to expectations this year. He's worth a shot even though only one of the seven hits was for extra bases.
 
9/10/2014 2:51:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd is not in Wednesday's starting lineup.
Insight: Merely a regular off day for the Phillies right fielder. He is hitting .265 with 25 home runs and 78 RBI this season. Grady Sizemore will make the start in right, but with his .248 batting average and .691 OPS doesn't have much fantasy value.
 
9/7/2014 6:48:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd went 2-for-4 on Sunday in a loss against the Nationals.
Insight: Byrd came into the game hitting .167 in his career against Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez, but got the better of the matchup on Sunday. He also came into the game hitless in his last 15 at-bats, but Byrd snapped that streak. He is hitting .265 with 25 home runs and 78 RBI this season.
 
9/7/2014 10:22:00 AM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd is a career .167 hitter against Washington left-hander Gio Gonzalez.
Insight: Byrd has been the most consistent hitter on the Phillies roster, batting .233 with 25 HR and 78 RBI.
 
8/11/2014 9:40:00 AM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd is a career .400 hitter with a 1.104 OPS versus Mets starter Jonathan Niese.
Insight: Byrd has been the most consistent hitter on the Phillies roster, batting .273 with 22 HR and 66 RBI. He's 4-for-9 in the first three games of the series with the Mets.
 
8/8/2014 10:05:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd socked his 22nd homer of the year Friday against the Mets.
Insight: Byrd had three hits on the night and is hitting .274 with 65 RBI, 60 runs and an .803 OPS. His 22 homers rank third in the NL.
 
8/2/2014 10:58:00 AM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd is 3-for-17 (.176) against Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann.
Insight: Byrd (.271, 21 HR, 63 RBI) is the best hitter in the Phillies lineup, but this matchup should be avoided.
 
8/1/2014 9:40:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Friday at Washington.
Insight: Byrd (.271, 21 HR, 63 RBI) was on the trade block before Thursday's deadline, but Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. failed to get a deal done. It would have been good for Byrd's fantasy value if he landed in a better lineup. The veteran has a pitiful 130/26 K/BB in 455 plate appearances (28.6 K%, 5.7 BB%), so fantasy owners should prepare for an extended slump at some point during the final two months.
 
Hot7/31/2014 3:27:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd is in the lineup Thursday, according to beat writer Ryan Lawrence.
Insight: The Phillies can always scratch Byrd if he's traded before 4 p.m., but this could be a sign that he's not going anywhere.
 
Hot7/29/2014 4:16:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game with the Mets.
Insight: Considering he's one of the few Phillies actually hitting the ball we're surprised, but it appears to be a routine day of rest. Byrd is batting .273 with 20 HR and 60 RBI.
 
Hot7/28/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd had four singles Monday night against the Mets.
Insight: In his last 10 games, Byrd has gone 17-for-47 (.362) with two doubles and two home runs. He may be moved to a contender before the deadline.
 
7/21/2014 10:55:00 AM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd is just 2-for-13 (.154) against Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong.
Insight: Byrd (19 HR, 55 RBI) has proved that last season power numbers weren't a fluke. Several teams, including the Mariners, Royals and Reds, are reportedly interested in trading for the 36-year-old.
 
7/20/2014 7:31:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, his 19th of the year, Sunday against the Braves.

7/19/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd is 9-for-20 (.450) with three long balls versus Braves starter Aaron Harang.
Insight: With Chase Utley in a slump, Byrd is the only Phillies hitter doing anything (.261, 18 HR, 52 RBI). He might bring value in a traded deadline deal, but in the meantime he should be a nice play Saturday night.
 
7/6/2014 4:40:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd went 2-for-4 with home run and two RBI Sunday against the Pirates.
Insight: With Chase Utley in a slump, Byrd is the only Phillies hitter doing anything (.266, 18 HR, 52 RBI). He might bring value in a traded deadline deal.
 
6/29/2014 4:59:00 PM
Description: Phillies right fielder Marlon Byrd went 2-for-4 with two solo homers Sunday against the Braves.
Insight: Byrd has hit eight homers this month and 15 on the year to go with a .268 average, 48 RBI and an .806 OPS. Byrd hit a career-high 24 homers with 88 RBI, a .291 average and an .847 OPS last year and he's ahead of where he was on this date a year ago (.259, 12 HR, 40 RBI, .803 OPS).
 
6/28/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia right fielder Marlon Byrd is just 6-for-33 (.182) with 10 strikeouts against Braves right-hander Ervin Santana.
Insight: The 36-year-old putting together some nice power numbers (13 HR, 34 extra-base hits), but this is another unfavorable matchup to be avoided.
