      Byrd went 3-for-5 with a homerun, two RBI and three runs scored in Cleveland's 15-6 victory against the Reds. The outfielder's playing time has diminished this month, but with Michael Brantley back on the disabled list Byrd could be in line for a string of starts in the coming weeks. Byrd has three home runs and 14 RBI for the season to go along with his .253 batting average.

      Indians' Marlon Byrd: Out of lineup Sunday

      Byrd is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports. Byrd had started the previous three games in the corner outfield, but went just 2-for-14 with six strikeouts during that time. Though Michael Brantley (shoulder) went back on the DL and Lonnie Chisenhall (personal) remains on the bereavement list, manager Terry Francona will turn to Jose Ramirez and Michael Martinez in the corner spots Sunday as a means of getting more lefty bats into the lineup against right-hander Tyler Duffey.

      Indians' Marlon Byrd: Out of the lineup Wednesday

      Byrd is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. With Lonnie Chisenhall returning, at-bats are going to be increasingly difficult to come by for the 38-year-old Byrd. Even more so, he's just 1-for-14 over his past six games, dropping his average down to .241 on the season. A professional hitter, Byrd is still a useful piece as a pinch hitter.

      Indians' Marlon Byrd: Will start Wednesday against Twins

      Byrd will start in right and bat eighth in the lineup Wednesday against the Twins. Byrd is replacing Lonnie Chisenhall (neck) in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game. The 38-year-old has played in 14 games for the Indians this season, batting .295 with two home runs and eight RBI. Even though Byrd strikes out a decent amount (28.8 percent on the year), he has always been a reliable power bat and can provide a cheap bargain for any fantasy owner looking for some home runs and RBI.

      Indians' Marlon Byrd: Makes Indians roster

      Byrd was informed Monday that he will break camp with the Indians.
