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. Dec 2 - 5:35 PM

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

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.

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.
