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:

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.

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.
