Spring Training games are just around the corner, and the 2014 season is quickly approaching. To celebrate, WSBGMs is previewing most of the players expected to be on the Phillies 25-man roster, either as individuals (ex- starting position players) or as groups (ex- bullpen and bench). Today the we focus on deja vu rejuvenated right fielder, Marlon Byrd.
Pros: Coming off a career year, solid defense, right-handed pop, returning to the team that drafted him back in 1995 and has something to prove.
Cons: Old, coming off a career year (yep, both a positive and a negative), PED suspension in 2012.
WSBGMs 2014 Projections for Marlon Byrd:
139 G, .273/.764, 65 R, 28 DBL, 15 HR, 74 RBI.
