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.
