Reds | Marlon Byrd traded away

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 13:26:51 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd was traded to the San Francisco Giants Thursday, Aug. 20, in exchange for P Stephen Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: The trade of Byrd opens up plenty of playing time in the Cincy outfield, especially since Billy Hamilton is currently on the DL. Expect Brennan Boesch, Jason Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Skip Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) to all see notable at-bats down the stretch. This trio doesn't carry much fantasy value at all, though, aside from deep NL-only leagues, and they are weak options on FantasyScore.

Giants | Marlon Byrd acquired by Giants

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 13:24:40 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd was acquired by the San Francisco Giants Thursday, Aug. 20, in exchange for P Stephen Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter Pence and Angel Pagan are injured for San Fran, so Byrd ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will be an immediate upgrade to their injured outfield. He should play nearly every day, at least until Pence and Pagan return. The move to hitter-friendly San Fran won't help Byrd's fantasy value at all, though.
