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.

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.
