JOHN MAYBERRY RUMORS

John Mayberry and Wasted Resources

Back in December, I argued against tendering a contract to John Mayberry, suggesting that his salary outweighed his projected contributions. Mayberry was worth rostering when he made the league minimum and exhibited upside, but he was well past both points. There was no risk to letting him go, because despite his athleticism and versatility, he had been a replacement-level player...

Phillies must trade John Mayberry before tomorrow's Rule 5 Draft

John Mayberry must not be on the Phillies 40-man roster this time tomorrow. Mayberry must be traded tonight. Why the urgency? The Phillies were given a gift last week when they earned an extra Rule 5 draft selection from the Cubs through a grievance.
