07:27 AM ET 11.13 | One down, another to go? While Ruben Amaro Jr. finalized a two-year agreement with Marlon Byrd, he expressed a willingness to retain another outfielder, John Mayberry Jr. Mayberry is eligible for arbitration this winter, and Amaro said he expects to tender him a contract prior to the Dec. 2 deadline. "He's not a issue for me," Amaro said. "... We haven't made any final decisions. But I'd view him as a tender." Mayberry should earn approximately $1.5 million through arbitration. That does not guarantee him a spot on next season's roster. The Phillies can re-sign Mayberry and later trade him. His numbers dipped for a second consecutive season. He batted just .227 in 134 games with a .677 OPS and 11 home runs. Mayberry has value as a bench player who can platoon against lefties.
