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. Fri, Dec 23, 2016 04:14:00 PM

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 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.

Ben Revere is not in Monday's lineup versus the Dodgers.

Revere is sitting for the second straight day, this time against ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw while Michael Taylor is getting another start in center field. It appears that Dusty Baker is moving toward a straight platoon. While Revere still figures to get the bulk of the starts, he could be on the bench again with southpaws Scott Kazmir and Julio Urias lined up for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Ben Revere is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

He's receiving a routine day off. Michael Taylor is in center field and hitting leadoff. Wilson Ramos is also getting a breather, as Jose Lobaton is doing the catching.

Ben Revere went 2-for-5 and stole his seventh base of the season on Saturday.

Revere is having a miserable season as the Nationals' leadoff hitter. Even with the rare good game his line sits at an inept .213/.264/.280 with one home run, 19 runs, 12 RBI and seven steals. His track record indicates he will improve as the season unfolds if Nationals' manager Dusty Baker keeps running him out there every day.
Sun, Jun 19, 2016 01:35:00 AM

Ben Revere is not in the Nationals starting lineup for Friday's game against the Padres.

It's just a regular day of rest for the speedy outfielder. Michael Taylor will start in his place and bat leadoff against Christian Friedrich and the Padres on Friday.
Fri, Jun 17, 2016 06:46:00 PM

Ben Revere is out of the Nationals' lineup Wednesday.

Revere slugged his fifth career homer as part of a 2-for-3 night on Tuesday against the Mets, but he'll take a seat for the matinee Wednesday with New York throwing left-hander Steven Matz. Michael Taylor is starting in center field and batting leadoff for Washington.
