Ben Revere went 0-for-4 as the Angels' No. 2 hitter Monday and is hitting .185 through 27 at-bats.
Although Cameron Maybin was named the Angels' left fielder this spring, Revere has started over him the last three games, as manager Mike Scioscia searches for more offense. The switch simply hasn't worked so far, though it is entirely possible that Revere will prove to be a better option than Maybin against right-handers. Apr 17 - 11:38 PM

Ben Revere scored twice, stole a base and reached in all four of his plate appearances Wednesday in the Angels’ Cactus League win over the Mariners.

Revere provided two singles, a walk and (wait for it) a three-run homer in the second inning. You heard us right. Ben Revere, he of six career homers, hit a ball to Souvenir City. Revere has been impossibly hot this spring, hitting .421 with six RBI and four thefts. He’s expected to platoon in left field with Cameron Maybin this year.

Ben Revere went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple and a strikeout in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Dodgers.

Revere opened the game's scoring with an RBI triple in the third inning. That three-bagger was his first of the spring. This past season, he saw 375 plate appearances with the Nationals. Revere turned those into a cringe-inducing .217/.260/.300 triple-slash. He did post 14 steals, but that is just about the only thing he had going for him.

Ben Revere went 2-for-3 and swiped a base in a win over the Indians on Thursday.

Both hits were singles. The stolen bag was his third of the spring. He has a .526 batting average in 19 at-bats thus far. This will be his first season with the Angels. He is expected to serve as a utility outfielder when the regular season begins. He had a woeful .217/.260/.300 batting line with 2 home runs and 14 stolen bases in 375 plate appearances with the Nationals last year.

Ben Revere whacked three hits Wednesday in the Angels’ Cactus League win over the Reds.

Revere was on fire Wednesday, slapping singles in three straight at-bats before being lifted for a pinch-runner (that may be the first time that’s ever happened to him) in the sixth inning. Spring stats are largely meaningless but Revere is certainly off to a booming start with eight hits in his first 16 at-bats. The speedster will have to fight for playing time this year with Cameron Maybin and Kole Cahloun manning the two corner outfield spots in Anaheim.
Mar 8 - 7:32 PM

Angels signed OF Ben Revere to a one-year, $4 million contract.

ESPN's Buster Olney first passed along the contract details, and Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports says the outfielder can earn $2.25 million more through plate appearance incentives. Revere was a disaster with the Nationals last season, batting just .217/.260/.300 in 103 games, but nagging injuries likely played a big part in that. He was a career .295/.328/.348 hitter prior to 2016 and should see plenty of playing time in left field for the Halos.

MASN's Roch Kubatko is hearing from a source that Ben Revere is close to signing with a team.

Kubatko's source says an agreement could be announced sometime Friday, though there's very little clarity about where the 28-year-old speedster might be headed. Kubatko has ruled out the Orioles, and the Nationals seem doubtful to bring Revere back after non-tendering him in early December and acquiring Adam Eaton. That leaves 28 other possibilities. Revere struggled mightily with Washington in 2016, batting just .217/.260/.300 in 103 games, but he was a valuable commodity for a number of years prior to that.

Nationals non-tendered OF Ben Revere.

The move was expected, as Revere wasn't worthy of a raise in arbitration following an awful .217/.260/.300 batting line this past season. He hit over .300 in each of the previous three seasons, however, and will turn just 29 next May, so some team will give the speedster a shot.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Nationals are expected to non-tender Ben Revere.

MLBTradeRumors.com projected Revere to earn $6.3 million in his final year of arbitration eligibility, which is a salary the Nats evidently aren't comfortable in paying. Revere is coming off a season where he hit an ugly .217/.260/.300, but he's a career .285/.320/.342 batter and could bounce back in a new setting.

Nationals GM Mike Rizzo said he hasn't decided whether to tender a contract to Ben Revere.

Revere is due for a raise in his final year of salary arbitration in 2017 despite batting .217/.260/.300 over 375 plate appearances this past season. That raise could push his salary into the $8 million range. Revere is a decent bounceback bet at age 28 (he turns 29 next May), but the Nationals don't necessarily need him and could opt to cut some cost here to address other pockets of the roster.

Ben Revere is not on the Nationals' NLDS roster.

Revere saw his playing time dry up after Trea Turner took over in center field, and the club opted to give the final extra outfielder spot to Michael Taylor rather than Revere. Matt Belisle and Yusmeiro Petit also failed to make the roster, as they Nationals are carrying rookie Reynaldo Lopez in their bullpen.

Ben Revere is absent from the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

He'll sit out against lefty Steven Matz. The Nationals have Michael Taylor in center field and Trea Turner in the leadoff spot.

Ben Revere is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting a breather. Michael Taylor will handle center field.

Ben Revere played the role of hero on Friday, smacking a walk-off RBI double in the 14th inning to lead the Nationals to a 3-2 victory over the Reds.

The speedy outfielder finished the marathon evening 3-for-7 and also scored a run. He has picked up the pace offensively in recent weeks, but is still hitting just .225/.276/.283 with one homer, 14 RBI and 10 stolen bases on the season.

Ben Revere went 4-for-5 with an RBI, three runs scored and three stolen bases in Monday's victory over the Mets.

It was a good time for Revere to have a big night with Trea Turner making his professional debut in center field at Triple-A Syracuse on Monday. The speedster had three of the Nationals' six steals on the night, as teams are continuing to run wild on Noah Syndergaard. Revere was officially put on notice with the Turner news, so he'll need to keep it going.
