Marlon Byrd RF PHI 1 Month

Byrd is out of the lineup Thursday against the Marlins, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Manager Ryne Sandberg has taken measures to reduce the 37-year-old Byrd's workload in September, and this looks like nothing more than a routine day off following seven consecutive starts. Grady Sizemore will man right field in his absence. While Byrd is batting just .227/.271/.288 so far this month, he has hit safely in five straight games.

Byrd is not in the lineup Tuesday, CSN Philadelphia's Jim Salisbury reports.

Byrd will get his third day off over the Phillies' last seven games, and while it's been a solid fantasy season for Byrd and his owners, this isn't the playing time pattern owners would like to see down the stretch. Grady Sizemore gets the start in right field Tuesday.

Byrd is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

Byrd has started to sit more often in favor of Grady Sizemore the last couple weeks, and he will do so again Sunday. Byrd has 25 home runs on the season, but he has yet to hit one in September.

Byrd is out of the lineup Wednesday, the Morning Call's Stephen Gross reports.

He has a .265/.313/.458 slash line, but the major score for fantasy owners this season have been his 25 home runs and 78 RBI. He's in the top-20 in homers and top-30 in RBI, which is much more production than his draft day price projected. Grady Sizemore will get the start in right Wednesday.

Byrd is out of the lineup Saturday against the Nationals, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

Following an 0-for-5, three-strikeout showing Friday, Byrd will sit in favor of Grady Sizemore in right field. It's Byrd's second time on the bench in three games, as it seems manager Ryne Sandberg feels the 37-year-old is in need of an extended break after a grueling season. While it's certainly been a disappointing campaign for Philadelphia, that hasn't been the case for Byrd, who's already set a new career high in home runs with 25.

Byrd is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Braves, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

With Byrd enduring something of a minor rough spell over his last three games (0-for-10, five strikeouts), he'll take a seat for Wednesday's afternoon affair. Grady Sizemore enters the lineup in right field, but Byrd can still safely be considered the team's everyday option at the position.

Byrd is not in Sunday's starting lineup versus the Mets.

Byrd appears to be getting a routine day off, as Grady Sizemore and Dominic Brown will man the corner outfield positions in Sunday's series finale against the Mets. The veteran outfielder has been swinging the bat very well in recent days, going 5-for-12 with a couple of homers over his last three games. Byrd should be back in the lineup for Monday afternoon's bout with the Braves.

Byrd is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets, Stephen Gross of the Morning Call reports.

Byrd will get what looks like a routine day off after 10 straight starts, with Grady Sizemore filling in at right. An unidentified team claimed Byrd off revocable waivers earlier in the week, but the 48-hour window for the Phillies to trade him has since passed. The 36-year-old is 8-for-30 (.267 average) with two homers so far in August.

The Phillies have 48 hours to work out a trade with the claiming team, or they can pull Byrd back off waivers.
