Ben Revere went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Friday's win over the Rays.
Revere lofted a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning for his lone RBI. It put a capper on a four-run frame for the Blue Jays, as they clawed their way back from a 4-1 deficit to take a 5-4 lead and eventual 8-4 win. The veteran outfielder is heading into postseason play hot. He's currently working on a six-game hitting streak and has multi-hit efforts in four of those games. Overall, he's slashing .321/.357/.385 across 218 at-bats with the Blue Jays. Oct 2 - 10:41 PM

Ben Revere went 2-for-7 with an RBI single, a run scored and a stolen base against the Orioles in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

The stolen base was just Revere's seventh with the Jays but his 31st on the season. The speedy outfielder has enjoyed hitting primarily atop the Jays' potent lineup since joining the team at the deadline. Revere is hitting .303/.341/.374 with 84 runs scored overall.

Ben Revere went 4-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in the second game of Saturday's double-header against the Yankees.

All four of the hits went for singles, including a two-run infield knock in the seventh inning. Revere's done a nice job hitting for average this season (.342/.390/.390 over 146 at-bats with the Blue Jays), even if the power is typically non-existent.
Sep 12 - 10:52 PM

Ben Revere had an RBI single in the 11th inning as the Blue Jays beat the Yankees 9-5 in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

It was the Jays' only hit in the 11th inning, as Bryan Mitchell and Chasen Shreve combined to allow five walks (including three with the bases loaded) and a hit batsman. We're sort of burying the big news here, as Revere also homered Saturday afternoon, his first as a member of the Jays. It probably wouldn't have been a home run anywhere else, but Revere will take it. He now has four home runs in 626 career games.
Sep 12 - 6:01 PM

Ben Revere is leading off for the Blue Jays again on Monday night against the Indians.

Revere also hit there Sunday and went 0-for-4 with a walk in the Blue Jays' win over the Tigers. He's not the best fit to bat first in the loaded Toronto lineup, but it does obviously give a huge boost to his fantasy stock.
Aug 31 - 3:58 PM

Ben Revere went 3-for-4 with a trio of singles in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.

Revere and Ryan Goins were the only Blue Jays who finished out the day with multiple hits. After a slow start with his new team, Revere's heated up of late. He's on a seven-game hitting streak at the moment and is 14-for-29 over the span.
Aug 27 - 6:08 PM

Ben Revere went 4-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in the Blue Jays' 9-2 rout of the Angels on Friday.

The Angels nearly got Revere from the Phillies in the weeks leading up to the trade deadline. Tonight, he showed them what they were missing. Revere, though, hadn't really done much for the Blue Jays coming into this one. He was hitting just .211/.270/.228 in 17 games. Most disturbing for his fantasy owners is that he still hasn't attempted a single steal since being acquired.
Aug 22 - 1:52 AM

Ben Revere went 3-for-4 with three runs scored against the Twins on Thursday.

Revere was just 2-for-16 in his first five games with the Jays. Still, it's not going to affect his playing time. Batting ninth obviously hurts his value a bit, but there's certainly no better lineup in which to be hitting ninth.
Aug 6 - 10:01 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday that Ben Revere will bat at the bottom of the batting order and platoon in left field.

He'll be on the strong side of a platoon, but hitting ninth instead of leadoff obviously hurts Revere's run-scoring potential. He'll still have plenty of fantasy value going from Philadelphia to Toronto, though.
Jul 31 - 4:42 PM

Blue Jays acquired OF Ben Revere from the Phillies for RHP Alberto Tirado and RHP Jimmy Cordero.

The Jays got a nice complimentary piece for their outfield. Revere shouldn't start over Kevin Pillar in center, but he can fill in there on occasion. He'll probably end up platooning with Chris Colabello in left field, giving the Jays more defense there at the cost of power. His fantasy value would seem to drop some, since he could hit low in the order and play less than he might have elsewhere. Still, he remains worth using in mixed leagues. The Phillies have freed up more at-bats for Domonic Brown and Cody Asche as they try to figure out their 2016 outfield.
Jul 31 - 4:00 PM's Todd Zolecki reports that the Blue Jays have acquired Ben Revere from the Phillies.

It's unclear at this point what the Blue Jays are giving up in return. Revere will take over in left field for Toronto and possibly slide into the leadoff spot. He could score a ton of runs in front of that dynamic offense.
Jul 31 - 2:06 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal was told by one source that there's a "50/50" chance the Orioles trade for Ben Revere.

The O's have already added Gerardo Parra, but they're still seeking some outfield help. Revere has also been connected with the Blue Jays, but it sounds like their interest has died down a bit. He's under team control through 2017.
Jul 31 - 12:02 PM

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Blue Jays "aren't interested" in Ben Revere at the current asking price.

This comes after multiple reports had talks between the Jays and Phillies about the outfielder progressing, but obviously significant ground needs to be made up. Olney says the Phils "are talking to some other team." It's unclear which club that is, but the Orioles reportedly still have some interest even after acquiring Gerardo Parra.
Jul 31 - 11:48 AM

Jim Salisbury of reports that the Blue Jays' trade talks with the Phillies involving Ben Revere are "heating up."

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has confirmed that the Jays are in on Revere. It's unclear what the Phillies might receive in return, but Toronto makes sense for a landing spot for Revere since they're looking for left field help. The speedy outfielder could also be an option to hit leadoff.
Jul 31 - 11:00 AM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles are trying to acquire both Ben Revere and Gerardo Parra.

Picking up two corner outfielders would allow them to move Chris Davis back to first base. Revere is making $4.1 million this season and is under team control through 2017, while Parra will be a free agent this winter.
