Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that the Angels like Phillies outfielder Ben Revere, but are in "exploratory mode" and are "not rushing in any direction" for outfield help.

This comes in response to a report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, who noted that the Angels have shown interest in Revere in the past. Matt Joyce has been a big disappointment this season and Angels manager Arte Moreno decided to turn the page on Josh Hamilton, so we expect the club to land another outfielder eventually.
May 19 - 2:39 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Ben Revere is being tracked by scouts for a potential trade.

The thought is that Revere will be expendable in Philadelphia's outfielder once Cody Asche and Domonic Brown return from the minors. Rosenthal notes that the Angels have shown interest in the past. Revere is making $4.1 million this season and is under team control though 2017.

Ben Revere went 3-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and a run scored as the Phillies topped the Rockies on Monday.

Revere has had back-to-back three-hit games now. The outfielder is gradually bringing his average back to respectability, now batting .268/.314/.356 12 RBI, 17 runs scored, and eight stolen bases.
May 19 - 12:07 AM

Ben Revere went 3-for-4 with a walk, an RBI single, and a stolen base in Sunday's win versus the Diamondbacks.

The Phillies' No. 2 and 3 hitters -- Andres Blanco and Grady Sizemore -- combined to go 0-for-8 so Revere never came around to score. He got his RBI in the eighth inning to push the Phillies' lead to 6-0. Revere has yet to pick his average up over .265 after finishing above .300 in each of the last two seasons. Overall, he carries a .255/.299/.345 triple-slash line with seven stolen bases this year.
May 17 - 4:33 PM

Ben Revere went 4-for-5 with three doubles, an RBI, and two runs scored in Wednesday's loss to the Braves.

Revere did his best to help the Phillies come back against the Braves but it was just not enough. He doubled and scored in the third, doubled and was stranded in the fifth, knocked in a run with a double in the sixth, and singled and scored in the ninth. The light-hitting outfielder is hitting .264/.304/.368 with five stolen bases following a sluggish start to the 2015 campaign.
May 6 - 10:28 PM

Ben Revere went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored to help the Phillies top the Marlins 6-2 on Sunday.

Revere briefly tied the game at 1-1 in the top of the fifth inning with an RBI single to left-center. It marked only the third multi-hit game of the season for the outfielder, who challenged for the National League batting title last year with a .306 average. The light-hitting Phillies are hoping to get Revere going at the top of the lineup, as he's hitting just .239/.286/.326 on the season.
May 3 - 4:12 PM

Ben Revere drove home the game-winning run in the ninth inning on Friday, delivering the Phillies a 1-0 victory over the Braves.

Freddy Galvis singled off Jim Johnson to lead off the ninth inning, was sacrificed to second and took third on a passed ball, setting the stage for Revere's ground ball to first base to plate the winning run. Even with the lone RBI, Revere finished the night 0-for-5 and is hitting just .172/.213/.259 on the season.

Ben Revere will bat second against the Marlins on Tuesday.

Revere has either been in the bottom-third of the order or on the bench for the past week, so this is nice to see for fantasy owners. Other items of note Tuesday are that Carlos Ruiz will bat cleanup while Ryan Howard hits sixth.
Apr 21 - 3:32 PM

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.
Apr 18 - 10:48 AM

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.
Apr 15 - 4:29 PM

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.
Apr 14 - 3:29 PM

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.
Mar 22 - 4:33 PM

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.
