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. Jun 20 - 6:56 PM

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.

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.

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.
May 25 - 11:36 AM

Ben Revere ripped a rare home run in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

The home run even came off of a left-hander, as Revere took southpaw Antonio Bastardo deep with a solo shot in the seventh inning. Revere also doubled and drew a walk, scoring a pair of runs on the night. The speedy leadoff hitter is starting to heat up with multi-hit games in four out of his last five contests.

Ben Revere is absent from the Nationals' lineup Friday.

He's getting a breather with the Marlins throwing lefty Justin Nicolino. Michael Taylor is in center field and leading off.
May 20 - 4:32 PM

Ben Revere finally got going Thursday, finishing 2-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored against the Mets.

Revere actually had both of his hits in the top of the third inning, singling to lead off the frame before knocking a two-run triple to cap the scoring in the seven-run inning. It was just his second multi-hit outing in 12 games since returning from the disabled list as he continues to try to knock the rust off. The speedy outfielder is batting just .123/.177/.211 in 13 games overall.

Ben Revere went 2-for-5 with a double, a triple and two runs scored Saturday against the Cubs.

Revere didn't have a single hit dating back to April 4 -- sure, a span of just eight at-bats -- before his leadoff double in the third inning. He added his first triple of the season in the seventh inning. Nationals manager Dusty Baker has batted Revere atop the lineup in two starts since he was activated from the disabled list on Friday, a good sign for Revere owners hoping he'll score plenty of runs and steal plenty of bases. He should get to doing both soon.
May 7 - 8:07 PM

Nationals activated OF Ben Revere from the 15-day disabled list.

Revere missed a little over a month of action with a strained right oblique. He's back in center field and leading off for the Nationals on Friday against the Cubs and John Lackey.
May 6 - 11:05 AM

The Nationals are expected to activate Ben Revere (oblique) on Friday.

Revere could have played Thursday but manager Dusty Baker didn't want to risk it in the cold weather. He'll take batting practice and go through a normal pregame routine. Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth both stand to lose playing time with Revere healthy again.
May 5 - 6:45 PM

Ben Revere (oblique) is not in the Nationals' lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

Revere has joined the Nationals in Chicago after finishing his rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse. There was speculation he could be activated on Thursday but it appears the Nats will wait until Friday to make that move. Michael Taylor will start in center field and bat leadoff. Revere strained his oblique in Washington's season opener on April 4.
May 5 - 4:14 PM

Ben Revere (oblique) is expected to rejoin the Nationals on Thursday at Wrigley Field.

Revere played a full nine innings of center field Tuesday in his fifth minor league rehab game and came out of it feeling fine. He's been on the disabled list since suffering a strained oblique in the Nationals' regular-season opener. Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth are probably both looking at a reduction in playing time with Revere returning to starting center field duties.
May 4 - 12:31 PM

Ben Revere (oblique) played a full nine innings of center field Tuesday at Triple-A Syracuse.

May 4 - 11:10 AM

Ben Revere (oblique) is on track to rejoin the Nationals this weekend in Chicago.

Revere is playing in his fifth rehab game Tuesday at Triple-A Syracuse, though he's yet to go a full nine innings. The speedy center fielder has been sidelined since the first game of the 2016 regular season because of a right oblique strain. Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth figure to lose playing time upon Revere's return to Washington's outfield mix.
