Ben Revere is not in the Phillies starting lineup on Saturday.
Revere is once again on the pine in favor of Darin Ruf who is drawing the start in left field. While Revere is off to a slow start at the dish, it's hard for him to get going with such sporadic playing time. The Phillies handling of him early in the season has been curious to say the least.

Ben Revere is batting eighth for the Phillies again on Wednesday night against the Mets.

And center fielder Odubel Herrera will again lead off. Revere is off to a 5-for-32 (.156) start this season and he's drawn just one walk in 34 plate appearances.

Ben Revere has been dropped to eighth in the Phillies' lineup Tuesday against the Mets.

Revere is just 4-for-28 (.143) with one walk through seven games, so Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg wants to try something different. Here's the full lineup Matt Harvey will face on Tuesday: Odubel Herrera CF, Freddy Galvis SS, Chase Utley 2B, Ryan Howard 1B, Carlos Ruiz C, Cody Asche 3B, Grady Sizemore RF, Revere LF, David Buchanan SP. You might want to find a way to squeeze Harvey into your daily lineup.

Ben Revere had two hits, a walk and two runs scored against the Pirates on Saturday.

According to FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal, the Phillies are taking offers on Revere, thinking they might have a younger version of him in center in the form of Odubel Herrera. Still, they'll probably want real value for him, making any sort of quick deal unlikely. It's not like the Phillies have anyone banging down the door to take his place in left, and Revere is making just $4.1 million, so money is not an issue.
Apr 4 - 4:43 PM

Ben Revere went 0-for-3 on Sunday and is 6-for-40 with no extra-base hits this spring.

Manager Ryne Sandberg has talked Revere up as a potential 40-double guy and suggested that he look for pitches to drive, instead of being satisfied to rack up singles. One wonders if he's just setting Revere up for disaster. Revere had just 13 doubles last year -- he has 44 in 1,905 career major league at-bats -- yet he hit .306 and he got himself to second plenty by stealing 49 bases. That's Revere's game, and it seems unlikely that trying to change him will have positive results.

Phillies and OF Ben Revere avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.1 million contract.

It's a nice raise for the outfielder in his second year of arbitration eligibility. Revere batted .306/.325/.361 over 151 games this season while finishing fourth in the majors with 49 steals.
Jan 16 - 2:42 PM

Ben Revere underwent right ankle surgery this week.

Revere had screws removed from the ankle and will be in a boot for two weeks. However, he should be fine by the time spring training rolls around. The 26-year-old outfielder batted .306/.325/.361 over 151 games this season while finishing fourth in the majors with 49 steals.
