Ben Revere (rib) is back in the Phillies' starting lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

Revere has been limited to pinch-hitting duties since Friday due to a sore rib, but he's ready to go. It's safe to put him back in your fantasy lineup, but be sure to watch the weather forecast in Philadelphia.
Apr 15 - 2:46 PM

Ben Revere (rib) remained out of the Phillies' lineup Monday.

Revere has missed four straight starts with an injured rib, though he has entered as a pinch-hitter in the last three contests. The Phillies are also content with keeping Tony Gwynn Jr.'s hot bat in the lineup. Gwynn is again in center field and leading off for the Phils. Revere remains day-to-day.
Apr 14 - 6:32 PM

Ben Revere (rib) remained out of the Phillies' lineup on Sunday.

Revere has now missed all three starts for the weekend series against the Marlins after he injured a rib while making a diving catch Wednesday. There's been no indication to this point that it's more than a day-to-day injury. Tony Gwynn Jr. is getting another start in center field Sunday. Carlos Ruiz is also sitting out Sunday, with Wil Nieves filling in behind the plate.
Apr 13 - 10:03 AM

Ben Revere is not in the Phillies starting lineup for the second consecutive day on Saturday.

Tony Gwynn Jr. is once again starting in his spot and leading off for the Phillies. It remains unclear if there is an underlying injury, or if the two day rest has anything to do with Revere fanning three times in Thursday's game.
Apr 12 - 2:41 PM

Ben Revere is not in the Phillies' lineup Friday.

Revere had his first career three-strikeout game Thursday, so it's probably a good time to give him a breather. Tony Gwynn Jr. is taking his spot in center field Friday.
Apr 11 - 2:43 PM

Ben Revere had his first ever three-strikeout game while going 0-for-4 against the Brewers on Thursday.

Revere has struck out eight times in nine games overall, which is unusual for him. He fanned 54 times in 124 games in 2012 and 36 times in 88 games last year. He's still hitting .293, so it's probably a fluke.
Apr 10 - 10:06 PM

Ben Revere went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

Revere singled and stole his fourth base of the season in the fifth inning, eventually scoring on a Chase Utley ground out. A broken foot kept Revere in the garage for the second half of last season, but now healthy he's back to his base-stealing ways. The outfielder has yet to be caught this season after being caught eight times in 30 attempts last year.
Apr 6 - 7:24 PM

Ben Revere went 2-for-2 with a triple, a walk and two runs scored to help the Phillies beat the Orioles 6-5 on Wednesday.

The Phillies appear set to go with Revere as their everyday option in the leadoff spot, which will help his fantasy value. Last year, he made 42 of his 79 starts as a leadoff man.
Mar 12 - 4:56 PM

Phillies and OF Ben Revere avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.95 million contract.

The deal also includes award bonuses. $1.9125 million was the midpoint of figures exchanged last week, so it's a contract that appears to be fair for both sides. Revere qualified for arbitration eligibility for the first time this winter as a Super Two player.
Jan 24 - 5:06 PM

Ben Revere requested $2.425 million and was offered $1.4 million from the Phillies when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

The two sides are likely to settle around $1.9 million. The 25-year-old speedster missed the second half of the 2013 season after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured foot, but should be healthy and ready to go for spring training. His Phillies tenure got off to a terrific start, after slashing .305/.388/.352 with 22 stolen bases in his first 88 games.
Jan 17 - 8:51 PM
