Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Phillies and outfielder Marlon Byrd came to terms Wednesday on a one-year contract.
The 26-year-old Byrd agreed to a split deal worth $355,000 at the major league level or $240,000 if he spends the season in the minor leagues.
Byrd had a productive campaign for the Phillies in 2003 when he batted .303 with seven homers, 45 RBI and 86 runs scored in 135 games. His batting average and .366 on-base percentage were both third-best among NL rookies.
Byrd underwent successful off-season surgery on his shoulder and said he is ready for spring training.
The Phillies have just four unsigned players remaining -- shortstop Anderson Machado, outfielder Jason Michaels, righthander Brett Myers and second baseman Chase Utley. The players have until March 2 to agree to terms, at which time their contracts will be renewed.
