Phillies | Marlon Byrd starting, Ryan Howard sitting

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 12:20:30 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Marlon Byrd is in the starting lineup Thursday, July 31, against the Washington Nationals. 1B Darin Ruf is starting at first base against the Nationals left-handed SP Gio Gonzalez, instead of 1B Ryan Howard.

Fantasy Tip: With Byrd in the lineup, it is unlikely he is traded before the non-waiver deadline today. Ryne Sandberg appears to be sticking to his platoon at first base. Howard's dwindling fantasy stock will continue to fade, if he continues to sit against left-handed pitchers. Ruf is worth owning in NL-only leagues, as long as he is getting semi-regular at-bats.

Phillies | Marlon Byrd could approve deal

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 19:18:02 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Marlon Byrd had four teams on his no-trade list, the Kansas City Royals, Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays.

However, he hinted Monday, July 28, he could lean toward approving a trade to the other teams. "Then I have to have a conversation with my wife and with my agents, and see what's best for me, my family, and what's best for this organization, because I can't be that selfish," Byrd said. "I was blessed. (General manager Ruben Amaro Jr.) came hard and wanted me here this year. He made it easy for me this offseason. So I can't be tough on him."
