JOHN MAYBERRY RUMORS

Mayberry Finally Breaks Out With Big Performance

It’s no secret that John Mayberry started out his Mets tenure mired in a dreadful slump. Coming into last night’s game, Mayberry was batting .137 with only seven hits all year. Despite these numbers, Terry Collins decided to start the right handed slugger against Diamondbacks’ lefty Robbie Ray. With a huge night at the plate, Mayberry rewarded his manager’s confidence....

Morning Grind: Mayberry Has Been A Disaster

On the bright side, John Mayberry only struck out once yesterday. After Mayberry went 0-for-4 to drop his average to .140 in Sunday’s series finale against the Marlins, Joe D asked me to dig up Mayberry’s splits. I did, but quickly found that there’s no way to spin it. Mayberry has been BAD. Mayberry has been bad against lefties. He’s been bad against righties. He’s been...

Mayberry is mainly a bench player, but manager Terry Collins has put him in the starting lineup vs opposing lefty pitchers and benches Curtis Granderson or Lucas Duda to get him in the lineup. Mayberry got off to a good start in his first game...

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. It gives the Phillies the 4th and 7th picks in tomorrow's Rule 5 draft. Problem is, they have two selections in the draft and...

Is an Upgrade Over Mayberry Even Available?

There has been much discussion about the Phillies reluctance to let John Mayberry Jr. walk. In my offseason plan posted last month on PhilliesNation.com, it included letting Mayberry go and signing Chris Young to a two-year, $10 million deal. The Phillies instead held onto JMJ and inked Marlon Byrd to a two-year, $16 million deal. Now, there have been rumblings from the organization...
