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.

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.
