Report: Phillies signing Marlon Byrd to two-year deal

A Marlon Anderson signing cannot be too far off.

The Phillies are reportedly about to sign Pirates outfielder Marlon Byrd, according to 94 WIP.

Byrd, originally drafted by the Phillies, made his big league debut with them in 2002. After several bottoming out years, Byrd hit .291 this season with an .847 OPS at 35 years old.

In late August, the Mets were about to hold Marlon Byrd t-shirt night, in appreciation of the 35-year-old slugger’s somewhat surprising offensive output on the year. They then traded Byrd to the Pirates, hours beforehand. He adapted well to the change, aiding the Bucs during their playoff run, hitting .318 and going 8-for-22 in the playoffs.
