CINCINNATI - The Reds acquired outfielder Marlon Byrd and cash from the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday for a minor league pitcher, filling the biggest hole in their lineup. Brandon Williams Jersey .The Reds tried to get a left fielder through free agency but failed, prompting them to trade for the 37-year-old Byrd. He played centre field and right field during his major league career, but came up through the minors as a left fielder.Hopefully its going to be like riding a bike, Byrd said during a conference call. Im going to have to put a little extra work on it this off-season.Byrd is the latest veteran traded for prospects as the Phillies rebuild. Theyve also sent 2007 National league MVP Jimmy Rollins to the Dodgers and left-handed reliever Antonio Bastardo to the Pirates. The Phillies have missed the playoffs three straight years after winning five straight NL East titles, two pennants and the 2008 World Series.Byrd gets $8 million next season. Theres an $8 million team option for 2016 at $8 million that becomes guaranteed if Byrd gets 509 at-bats next season. He had 591 at-bats last season with the Phillies and batted .264 with 28 doubles, 25 homers and 85 RBIs. He also fanned a career-high 185 times.I know people are going to say he struck out a lot he struck out last year more than he has, Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said. He had 28 doubles, 25 homers and 85 RBIs, and thats something we definitely need on our club. Hopefully we can get him to cut down on the strikeouts.Left field has been a trouble spot for the Reds since Ryan Ludwick suffered a shoulder injury on opening day 2013. He returned last season and batted only .244 with nine homers and 45 RBIs. The Reds decided to pay a $4.5 million buyout after the season rather than bring him back on a $9 million option.You know the theme weve been talking about a lot here, thats been having somebody that can really go out there on a daily basis and play the game the right way, manager Bryan Price said.The Reds were interested in Byrd during the 2013 season. Byrd wound up going from the Mets to the Pirates, who reached the playoffs with his help.The Phillies got right-hander Ben Lively, who was the Reds minor league player of the year for 2014. Lively, 22, went a combined 13-7 with a 3.04 ERA in Class A and Double-A last season. The Reds agreed to give up one of their better pitching prospects when the Phillies agreed to include money to cover some of Byrds salary.Yes, its a tough decision to give up a young pitcher, but it really is a strength of our organization, especially right-handed pitching, Jocketty said. They are paying a significant amount of his salary this year, which is the only way we would have been able to do this deal.___AP Sports Writer Rob Maaddi in Philadelphia contributed to this report.___Follow Joe Kay on Twitter: Custom Baltimore Ravens Jerseys . According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the New York Rangers winger skated with extras and goalies today. Baltimore Ravens Jerseys . -- Canadian ski cross star Marielle Thompson accomplished two goals in one race Saturday. . Ontario Superior Court Case Management Master Ronald Dash released the decision on Monday, saying John McCaw Jr. must testify in front of a jury by live video conference. Moores lawyer, Tim Danson, asked the court to compel McCaw - who is based in Seattle - to testify in the case back on February 27.MANCHESTER, England - Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says defender Marcos Rojo will be out for six weeks after dislocating his shoulder in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City last Sunday.Van Gaal says he saw a specialist yesterday evening who said the conservative way to heal it is best and that it can be less than six weeks. If he needed an opperation, 12 weeks. Austin Howard Jersey. ojos injury leaves Van Gaal with a lack of central defensive options ahead of the English Premier League match at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday, with Phil Jones, Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling also unavailable.Striker Radamel Falcao will also miss the game as he has not recovered from a calf problem.
