Reds released OF Ben Revere.

Signed to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training in late February, Revere was vying for an outfield spot with the Reds, but didn't do enough in the Grapefruit League. Because of his wheels and defense he likely will land a spot with another club quickly, but he likely will have to settle for another minor league deal.

Reds signed OF Ben Revere to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Revere will earn between $1-$1.5 million if he makes the big league club out of spring training. You would think that having a player like Revere would be redundant for the Reds as they already have Billy Hamilton starting in their outfield, but perhaps this is just an insurance policy.

Ben Revere did not start Saturday's game in Seattle, but he came on to finish with a pair of singles in two at-bats.

The left-handed hitting Revere had been struggling in September, entering with just two hits over seven at-bats. Perhaps this game will get him going and give manager Mike Scioscia a little more confidence to use Revere more frequently.

Ben Revere went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs on Tuesday as the Angels dispatched of the Athletics.

Revere opened the scoring with an RBI single in the first inning and added on another run-scoring knock in the fourth. The speedy outfielder is hitting .262/.300/.338 with one homer, 16 RBI and 20 swipes in his first season with the Halos.

Ben Revere went 2-for-5 with a bases-clearing double in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Revere jumped the Angels back into the game after they fell behind 4-0 early, driving in three runs off Charlie Morton with the bases juiced in the fifth inning. He has not had many such moments this season and is hitting just .258/.294/.332 for the campaign as a whole.

Ben Revere was removed from Tuesday's game against the Rangers with a left knee contusion.

Revere fouled a ball off his knee a couple of innings before departing. It doesn't sound like a serious thing. The 29-year-old outfielder went 1-for-3 and stole his 20th base of the season in Tuesday's victory versus Texas, though he's still slashing just .255/.292/.327 in 87 games overall for Anaheim.

Ben Revere went 1-for-2 with an RBI double Saturday in the Angels’ come-from-behind win over the Blue Jays.

Revere pinch-hit for Shane Robinson in the seventh and keyed the Angels’ ninth-inning comeback with an RBI double off closer Roberto Osuna. He scored the go-ahead run on Cliff Pennington’s sac fly later in the inning. Revere has seen more playing time recently with Cameron Maybin on the shelf, but he is still well off the fantasy radar.

Ben Revere keyed the Angels’ attack with three hits Sunday in a 4-2 win over the Red Sox.

All of his hits were singles. Revere also chipped in with a key stolen base in the ninth inning and later scored on an RBI single by Kaleb Cowart. Even with Mike Trout sidelined, Revere has mostly been a non-factor for the Halos, batting .221 with one homer, seven RBI and five steals. Despite his speed, he’s not getting enough at-bats to warrant fantasy consideration.

Ben Revere went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

Revere was the only Angels batter to finish with multiple hits and he picked up an RBI single in the fourth inning. For the season as a whole, the 29-year-old outfielder is hitting an uninspiring .220/.233/.322 with one homer and six RBI.

Ben Revere finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win in Oakland.

After a dismal opening month with a slash line of .184/.205/.237, Revere is starting to show signs of life in May. He has hit safely in three in a row while collecting nine hits over 29 at-bats (.310) with two doubles, a triple and a homer across eight games since flipping the calendar from April.

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.

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.
