Mets | NY wants to add another bat

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:17:58 -0700

The New York Mets want to add another big bat at the trading deadline, and they have their sights set on San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton, Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez, Milwaukee Brewers OFs Carlos Gomez and Gerardo Parra and Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce. The Padres and Mets didn't agree on a prospect package for Upton, but the talks could be rekindled. Gonzalez's price tag would be high, as he is heating up this summer. The Reds are showing interest in SP Zack Wheeler in exchange for Bruce. Reds OF Marlon Byrd could be a fallback option for the Mets.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets surely could use a boost on the offensive side, and any of these bats would do just fine. A move to New York for any of these names is unlikely to drastically affect their fantasy value, although some of those names would be leaving fine hitting environments.

Reds | Marlon Byrd out Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:59:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 28, against the St. Louis Cardinals. OF Jason Bourgeois will start in left field and hit leadoff against LHP Jaime Garcia.

Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is riding a three-game hit streak, but he's still hitting just .222 on the season, and he won't be worth consideration.

Reds | Marlon Byrd out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 12:25:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd is not starting Tuesday, July 7, against the Washington Nationals. 2B Skip Schumaker is starting in Byrd's place.

Fantasy Tip: This is a bit of a surprise as Byrd ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has a 10-game hitting streak and a .356 average during that streak. It is likely because Max Scherzer is pitching for the Nationals. Byrd has a .200 mark with four strikeouts against Scherzer, and Schumaker ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has three hits in six at-bats.

Reds | Marlon Byrd back in lineup

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:53:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd will start in center field and bat fifth against SP Matt Harvey and the New York Mets Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been swinging the bat well recently. He's hit two homers in his last six games and has eight hits total in those six games. Harvey has pitched splendidly in his last two outings, which could bode poorly for Byrd, but he's a good starting option until he stops this hot streak he's on.

Reds | Marlon Byrd sitting vs. Mets

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:05:51 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Chris Dominguez is starting in left field and batting seventh against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Byrd ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He has gone 8-for-26 with two home runs over his six games since returning from injury. Dominguez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been respectable when given a chance, and he stands as desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players.

Reds | Marlon Byrd homers in return

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 19:09:50 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd (wrist) went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 5-0 win over the Miami Marlins in his return from the disabled list Friday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) was coming off a strong month of May when he was injured, and he picked up where he left off. The Marlins will send inconsistent starter Tom Koehler to the mound Saturday, making Byrd worth a look at FantasyScore if you are hunting for a cheaper outfield option.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is 13-for-27 (.481) lifetime with two homers against tonight's starter Dan Haren. He's a solid OF3 option on FantasyScore.

Reds | Marlon Byrd eyeing return

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 16:04:42 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd (wrist) will play two games with Class AA Pensacola, and if everything goes well, he could potentially return to the Reds this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been extremely streaky this season, but he was opportunistic in May. During the month, Byrd had 14 runs, eight home runs and 17 RBI with a .244/.353/.581 slash line. Give him a game or two to find his groove again at the plate, but FantasyScore players could have a bargain on their hands when Byrd is hot.
