(SportsNetwork.com) - Marlon Byrd is returning to the franchise with which he began his major league career.

According to multiple reports, the veteran outfielder has reached an agreement on a two-year contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Phillies selected Byrd in the 10th round of the 1999 amateur draft.

Byrd, now 36, had one of the better seasons of his career in 2013.

He batted .285 with 21 homers and 71 in 117 games with the New York Mets before being dealt to Pittsburgh and helping the Pirates reach the playoffs. He hit .318 over 30 games down the stretch and went 8-for-22 in his first postseason action.

Byrd appeared in 256 games with the Phillies from 2002-05.
