Ben Revere (CF,LF)

Philadelphia Phillies - 77% owned

(?)
Bats: L, Throws: R

Ben Revere, batiing leadoff again today, finished 2-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's 5-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves. Revere's RBI was result of a triple, his third triple on the current homestand.

Fantasy Impact: In his last seven games, Revere has gone 7-for-27 (.259). That's not great, but it's also not as bad as his near .150 average earlier this year. His season average has finally cracked .200, sitting currently at .200 exactly. It's not what fantasy owners were expecting from Revere. However, it is a good sign that his average is going up.

Ben Revere found himself back in the Phillies' leadoff spot in Friday's game against the Atlanta Braves. He went hitless in five plate appearances, ending a six game hitting streak. However, Revere did drive in the winning run on an error by Freddie Freeman in the 9th inning.

Fantasy Impact: It appears the Phillies have not commited to a certain lineup spot for Revere, as well as other players. So, Revere's place in the order could change. Fantasy owners should wait Revere out as Aprile is an historically bad month for him. His average should improve, and Revere should still be one of the best 3-categoey players in fantasy this year.

Ben Revere went 1-for-4 in Thursday's 9-1 loss to the Miami Marlins. The entire Phillies offense struggled, as they have all season, and their only run came in the 9th inning after the game was already out of hand.

Fantasy Impact: Revere has a 6-game hitting streak at the moment, which is good news from a fantasy prospective. Revere is a 3 category player. He's getting steals and not striking out much, but his average still sits below .200. Look for the to rise in the near future.

After hitting either down in the order or finding himself on the bench all of last week, Ben Revere hit out of the #2 hole in Tuesday's win against Miami. Revere went 1-3 with a 2RBI triple, scored one run, and stole one base.

Fantasy Impact: April has historically been a slow month for Revere, and that could be the reason he found himself missing time or batting down in the order. Revere gets better as the season progresses, and today's game was a good sign. Revere should continue to be in the lineup in the upcoming days, but it remains to be seen where he will hit in the lineup consistently. In your fantasy league, if Reveres owner is looking to trade him, now would be the time to buy-low.

Ben Revere found himself in an unusual position on Tuesday; hitting eight in the Phillies lineup. In a game where there was little offense for the Phillies, outside of Chase Utley and Cody Asche homeruns, Revere did contribute a run in the 6-5 loss to the Mets.

Fantasy Impact: With Odubel Herrera struggling in his last two games, and tonight especially, it will be interesting to see how the Phillies proceed in their leadoff hitter game of musical chairs. Wherever Revere hits, you can count on him to steal bags. And when he gets into the groove of things, his average should improve too.

Ben Revere went 1-4 with a walk and stole his second base of the year. His average sits at a lowly .167, but that should improve as the season goes along.

Fantasy Impact: With Revere only being a two category (steals and average) player, it is imperative his average starts to improve. Depending on your league categories, Revere is also good in the strikeout category as he only K'd 49 times in 2014. Expect his average to go up, Revere hit .300+ in 2014, and for him to be consistent in the steals category.

Ben Revere went 0-4 in Thursday's loss to Boston. He's now hitting .083(1-12) on the short season. But, he scored a run, so that's a small silver lining.

Fantasy Impact: The hits should come for Revere, as he hit over .300 in 2014. The Phillies offense struggled as a whole in the series against Boston, so we will see if things improve as they move on to Washington. Revere continues to be one of the few bright fantasy lights on the Phillies. Don't fall into the early panic trap.

Ben Revere went 1-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in the Phillies 4-2 win over Boston on Wednesday. The Phillies offense was held scoreless for their first 14.1 innings until a 3 three run homer from Jeff Francoeur ended that streak.

Fantasy Impact: The Phillies offense will likely be forced to manufacture runs throughout the season due to the lack of power in the lineup. This will translate into a lot of stolen bases for Revere, and it's good to see him running early in the year. Expect more of the same as the season progresses.

Much like the rest of the Phillies offense, Ben Revere struggled against Boston in Monday's loss. On the plus side, Revere made contact in every at-bat, as he finished with no strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: It's the first game of the year. There's nothing to be concerned about. However, keep tabs on Revere specifically as it was reported last week he was on the trading block.

Ben Revere goes 2-4

Amidst rumors of Ben Revere landing on the trading block, Revere went 2-4, scored two runs, stole two bases (his fourth and fifth of Spring Training), and walked in his fifth at-bat in Saturday's 6-4 win over Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Impact: The trade rumors seem to be the Phillies just testing the market as they believe they have found a younger version of Revere in Odubel Herrera. Revere is still under club control until 2017 and is only owed 4 million this year. On the plus side, as the regular season approaches, it's a good sign seeing Revere collecting multiple hits and stealing bags. Expect a lot more of that when the regular season starts for the Phillies.

In his second at-bat, pinch hitting for Russ Canzler, Ben Revere hit a walk-off two run homerun for a 7-5 victory over Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Impact: It's unfortunate from a fantasy prospective because Ben Revere likely just hit his only homer of the season and it won't count for your fantasy team. Seriously though, this is a rare occurrence, and you should not expect this to happen often, in any sense of the word. Revere's value lies in his average, stolen bases, and low strikeouts. Keep that in mind if you're looking to draft a second or third outfielder and your team lacks speed.

Ben Revere goes 1-4

Fantasy Impact: Revere has said he doesn't mind more time in left field and it still remains to be seen if the move will be permanent. Even if it is, the move should not affect Revere's fantasy value. He will still hit at the top of the lineup and for a good average as well as steal bases.

Fantasy Impact: After today, Revere's average sits at .162. There is no reason to believe that number will not improve as the season progresses and we enter the regular season. Revere will be near the top of the steaks and average categories. He's going to be a nice piece for your team in 2015.

Ben Revere's slump continued in Thursday's win over the Yankees. His 0-4 game lowered his average to .121 for the spring. (Source: ABCNews.com)

Fantasy Impact: Revere will provide significant fantasy value no matter what he does this spring. He will hit for a good average, score runs, and steal bases. Fantasy owners should not worry about Revere's slow spring.

In a 3-2 split squad loss to the Yankees on Sunday, Ben Revere finished 0-2 with a walk, run, and a stolen base. (Source: ABCNews.com)

Fantasy Impact: Excluding the lack of hits, this was a typical Ben Revere day. The stolen base was specifically encouraging, given Revere is coming off a 2014 season with a nagging ankle injury. He has already expressed his desire to run more this year. And given that he stole 49 bags last year, he may be looking to lead the National League, and maybe the majors.

Ben Revere was one of few bright lights in a Wednesday afternoon 3-2 win over Pittsburgh. Revere started the game with a walk, contributed a sacrifice bunt, and added a hit on Wednesday, going 1-1 in 3 at bats. (Source: WRALSportsFan.com)

Fantasy Impact: Revere will assuredly bat leadoff for Philadelphia this season. If the first few games of spring are any indication, he may have a good chance at scoring runs in 2015 as the Phillies have sacrificed out to move Revere into scoring position multiple times. Expect a high average and a lot of steals, and if we're lucky, he'll score some runs too.

Fantasy Impact: Revere is entering 2015 high on radars after a breakout 2014. He hit .300+ and stole almost 50 bags. He has already spoken this year about the want to steal even more bags this year. If he can keep his average up, and throw in more steals(because he's not good for anything else), he will be of high value in 2015.

Ben Revere went hitless in three at bats today in the Phillies 6-3 loss to Houston. But, he contributed at least something with a sacrifice bunt. (Source: WTOP.com)

Fantasy Impact: It was Revere's first game of the spring so expect him to get better once he shakes some rust off. Revere will look to repeat, if not improve on, his breakout 2014 where he hit .306 and stole 49 bags. After a full off-season to recover to heal from his surgically repaired foot, expect his stolen base totals to rise.

Ben Revere lead the National League with 184 hits in 2014 and finished fifth in the league with a .306 batting average, despite dealing with pain from screws in his foot. Revere also stole 49 bases, but wants to run even more this year, aiming at Juan Samuel's 72 stolen bases in 1984. The key will be for Revere to be more pain free this season and draw more walks, thus increasing his on base percentage. (Source: CSNPHilly.com)

Fantasy Impact: Revere is a solid fantasy contributor in hits, batting average and stolen bases. His game is not conducive to helping fantasy owners in any power statistic. But Revere is already an elite base stealer, whether or not he improves upon his 49 stolen bases from last season.

 

The Phillies avoided salary arbitration with Ben Revere by signing him to a one-year contract worth $4.1 million. Revere hit .306 last season and tied for the National League lead with 184 hits. (Source: CSNPhilly.com)

Fantasy Impact: While Revere has some offensive tools (batting average and stolen bases), he had just 22 extra base hits and rarely draws a walk. But Revere should see the majority of the action in center field in 2015 and certainly can help fantasy owner. Revere should be available late in the draft or as a free agent pick up.
