Marlon Byrd went 3-for-4 with an RBI triple, a pair of RBI doubles and four total RBI in Sunday's 7-5 loss to the Cardinals.

Byrd hit a two-run double off Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia in the first inning, then drove home another run with a double in the sixth. Plus an RBI triple in the eighth, to finish out the game with four RBI. Since joining the Giants, he's 10-for-36 with three homers and 14 RBI in just nine games.

Marlon Byrd hit a grand slam off Michael Wacha in Friday's game.

The homer was Byrd's third in just seven games since he arrived in San Francisco. He has eight career slams in 146 at-bats with the bases loaded.
Aug 29 - 1:36 AM

Marlon Byrd blasted a two-run homer in his first at-bat as a Giant, helping to power his new squad to a 6-4 victory over the Pirates on Friday.

He also singled and doubled in the contest, finishing the night 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI. The door is open for him to play everyday in right field while Hunter Pence is sidelined, which should provide him with plenty of RBI chances in the middle of the Giants lineup.
Aug 21 - 11:09 PM

Giants acquired OF Marlon Byrd and cash considerations from the Reds for RHP Stephen Johnson.

With Hunter Pence (oblique) hitting the disabled list, it's a solid pickup for San Francisco. The 37-year-old Byrd is hitting just .237 with a .286 on-base percentage this season, but he has 19 home runs and a .448 slugging percentage. He'll provide some much-needed right-handed thump for the Giants down the stretch.
Aug 20 - 4:23 PM

Marlon Byrd went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Byrd came around to score the Reds' lone run on a sacrifice fly by Billy Hamilton in the fifth inning. With the two-hit attack, he's now hitting .241/.291/.456 on the season.
Aug 16 - 6:56 PM

Marlon Byrd went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk, and two runs scored Friday against the Pirates.

Byrd has gone deep in back-to-back games and now has 18 homers and a .777 OPS on the year. It's a bit surprising he wasn't moved by Friday's non-waiver trade deadline, but there's still a chance a deal could happen in August.
Jul 31 - 10:30 PM

Marlon Byrd went 3-for-6 and hit a three-run homer off A.J. Burnett in Thursday's rout.

Byrd is available in trade talks, but there hasn't seemed to be much demand so far. Tonight can't hurt, but it also probably won't change anyone's mind about him.
Jul 30 - 11:59 PM

Marlon Byrd is not in the Reds' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Cardinals.

It's just a day of maintenance for the veteran outfielder. Jason Bourgeois is starting in left field and batting leadoff for the Reds on Tuesday at Busch Stadium.
Jul 28 - 4:03 PM

Marlon Byrd is not in the Reds' lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

He'll be back in there for the second game. Skip Schumaker is in left field in Byrd's place.
Jul 22 - 9:57 AM

Marlon Byrd went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win against the Cubs.

Byrd extended the Reds' lead temporarily to 3-1 with a solo blast off of Clayton Richard in the fourth inning. Despite a slow start and a stint on the disabled list, Byrd has turned in another decent year, batting .244/.293/.469 with 16 home runs and 34 RBI. He's likely to be considered as a trade option in the next week and a half.
Jul 20 - 10:59 PM

Marlon Byrd had a huge night Friday against the Indians, going 4-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored.

His batting average jumped from .241 to .253 in the span of one night. The 37-year-old now has 15 home runs and a .782 OPS on the year. He hasn't been talked about much as a trade candidate, but he could be a good fit for a contender.
Jul 17 - 11:35 PM

Marlon Byrd is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Nationals.

He's presumably getting the day off. Skip Schumaker will start in left field against Max Scherzer.
Jul 7 - 2:59 PM

Marlon Byrd is absent from the Reds' lineup Friday.

It looks to simply be a day of rest. Chris Dominguez is handling left field while Byrd sits.
Jun 26 - 3:41 PM

Marlon Byrd went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a two-run home run, helping the Reds stave off the Pirates on Wednesday.

Byrd capped off a four-run first inning against Pirates starter Gerrit Cole with a two-run home run. He added an RBI single in the fifth for good measure. The veteran outfielder got off to a frigid start but was starting to figure things out in late May before suffering a fractured wrist on June 2. In five games back, he has two three-hit games and two home runs. On the year, he's batting .223/.293/.462 with 12 home runs and 29 RBI. Not bad, considering the circumstances.
