Ben Revere will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Thursday. Assuming he doesn't suffer a setback in his return from an oblique injury, he's on pace to rejoin the Nationals on their upcoming road trip. (Source: William Ladson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The road trip spans more than a week, so it's not exactly clear when he'll be back with the team. Owners will want to monitor his status through rehab, as it does seem like only a matter of time now before he's back with Washington.

Ben Revere has resumed swinging from both sides of the plate, another step in his return from an oblique injury. He's also regularly running the bases. His next step will be throwing from the outfield to test the oblique. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Once Revere is throwing and fully swinging from both sides of the plate without issue, he'll likely resume play in the minors on a short rehab assignment before rejoining the Nationals. Assuming he doesn't face a setback, he could be back with the team in the next week or two.

Ben Revere resumes running

Fantasy Impact: Revere has yet to resume swinging from the left side of the plate as he continues to return from the oblique injury. He's targeting a mid-May return, but it's still unclear at this point as he has a few more hurdles to clear in his recovery. Oblique's can be tricky and lend themselves to setbacks, so owners will want to monitor the situation.

Fantasy Impact: Hopefully Revere owners stashed Michael A. Taylor before Taylor started to heat up. With another month before Revere returns, Taylor's value is at an all-time high.

Fantasy Impact: This is not uncommon for oblique injuries, as they tend to linger if the player is not allowed time to fully recover. Considering the nature of the injury, Revere could be looking at an absence well extended beyond his minimum of 15 days. Michael Taylor will continue to see regular time in Revere's absence.

Fantasy Impact: Ben Revere was, most likely, drafted for you to win the stolen base category with the benefit of a .300 average and some additional runs. Until Revere can recover from his oblique strain you will be hard pressed to find stolen bases on the waiver wire until we get deeper into the season. For now, bite the bullet and find a replacement that can help you in other categories.

After leaving Monday's game with an oblique/rib cage injury, Nationals CF Ben Revere is not in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the Braves.

Fantasy Impact: Michael A. Taylor, who can provide similar numbers to Revere but with power, will start in his place. Should Revere miss significant time, Taylor's value will be greatly increased.


Category: , Injury Updates

Nationals OF Ben Revere left his Opening Day start today with what is presumed to be a rib/oblique injury.

Fantasy Impact: A replay from his second at-bat revealed a grimace and Revere reaching up toward his upper right ribcage on a foul ball. Michael A. Taylor replaced him and will likely see a spike in playing time if Revere misses any games.

Ben Revere exited the game in the fourth inning on Tuesday. Revere had struck out and grounded out so far.

Fantasy Impact: It's not yet known why Revere left the game. He was replaced by fourth OF Michael A. Taylor who had a torrid spring. It's hard to believe Revere would leave the game without an injury.


Category: , Injury Updates

Ben Revere went 2-for-4 on Sunday with a run scored versus the Braves.

Fantasy Impact: Revere continues to hit singles through spring training and now owns a .389 AVG and .389 OBP, meaning he has yet to walk all spring. He has one stolen base and one home run.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere went 2-for-3 and scored two runs in Wednesday's Grapefruit League matchup with the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact: Perhaps Revere has been just as impressed with the play of Michael Taylor as manager Dusty Baker has been. Taylor is more of a threat to Jayson Werth's playing time, but the extra bodies capable of playing outfield for the Nationals can only help their competitive drive.

Ben Revere goes 1-for-4

Wed, Mar 16th 7:14pm EDT
By Roy Widrig

Ben Revere continued his solid start today, going 1-for-4 with a run scored versus the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact: Revere has a tight grip on the National's leadoff spot. He's been striking out a bit this spring, which he has never been prone to do, but it's likely just offseason rust.


Category: , Game Recaps

Through just a few games, Nationals CF Ben Revere is off to a strong start, batting .538 with a home run and two RBI.

Fantasy Impact: It looks like Revere is responding well to playing with new Nationals manager Dusty Baker. Look for him to have a big year, but do not overpay for him in drafts. He's a solid three-category contributor (AVG, R, SB) but will not contribute RBI or HR.


Ben Revere hits a home-run versus Detroit to tie the game going 1-for-2 overall.

Fantasy Impact: Leading off for the Nationals is going well so far for Revere. Once the season starts he should be batting in front of some major contact bats in Murphy, Rendon, and Harper. He stole second the first time he was on base in spring training. Look for Dusty Baker to use his speed and for him to get back to 40+ SB like he did in 2012 & 2014. Revere has a great .295 career average with a .328 OBP. With his ability to get on base and steal second with consistency look for Revere to have a big year with the Nationals. I wouldn't expect much in the power department with his .348 SLG and a total of 4 HR in his career but his OBP and speed are a huge upside for anyone wanting to avoid Billy Hamilton.

Fantasy Impact: Revere split time between the Phillies and Blue Jays last season playing in 152 games while batting .306 with 84 runs and 31 steals. The 27-year-old Revere will likely take over in center field for the Nationals this season replacing Denard Span. Revere could have a lot of fantasy value this season if he bats in the leadoff spot for the Nationals.

Revere went 1-for-5 knocking in a run and scoring another in the 4-3 victory Monday.

Fantasy Impact: He is a high batting average player hitting at the top of the best offense in baseball so he is fantasy relevant.

Ben Revere with two hits Monday

Tue, Sep 22nd 1:47am EDT
By Jamie Mellor

Revere went 2-for-5 with a run scored in the 4-2 victory.

Fantasy Impact: He is batting leadoff and is hitting for a high average for the best offense in baseball so he has fantasy value.

Ben Revere went 6-for-12 on Saturday as the Blue Jays took both games of a doubleheader from the Yankees. Revere homered and stole a base on Saturday, along with four RBI and three runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: Revere led off for the Jays in both games of the doubleheader which increases his value for fantasy owners. Revere has excelled since he came to the Blue Jays and has continued to be a valuable asset for fantasy owners down the stretch of the season.


Category: , Game Recaps

Revere went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and a stolen base in the Blue Jays' 5-1 victory over the Indians.

Fantasy Impact: Revere was batting atop the Jays' lineup on Wednesday and collected two hits, scored two runs, and stole a base. Revere continues to pay dividends for both the Jays (who traded for him) and fantasy owners who stuck with him when he was slumping.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere was on fire Saturday, as he went 4-for-5 as the Blue Jays crushed the Tigers 15-1.

Fantasy Impact: Revere has been batting seventh in the Jays' order of late and has been red hot. The outfielder is now 8 for his last 12 and can safely be started in all leagues.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere continued his August resurgence by finishing 3-for-4 in Toronto's 4-1 loss to Texas.

Fantasy Impact: Revere is rewarding fantasy owners who stuck with him through his prolonged slump. Over the last 7 games, the Blue Jays outfielder has gone a ridiculous 14-for-29. On Thursday, he finally stole his first base for the Blue Jays, which is something fantasy owners have been waiting for since Toronto acquired him in July.

Ben Revere continues hot streak

Sun, Aug 23rd 12:02pm EDT
By Peter Ringel

Revere continued his hot streak on Saturday by finishing 2-for-4 with 3 runs scored, an RBI, and a walk.

Fantasy Impact: Could Revere be turning a corner and start playing like the player that the Blue Jays traded for? In his last two games, Revere is now 7 for his last 12 and has scored 7 runs over the last 3 games. Revere may now be a sneaky, cheap outfield play in daily leagues.


Category: , Game Recaps

Revere had a big night finishing 4-for-5 with one RBI and two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the big night, Revere has been a disappointment since coming over from the Phillies. He has not hit for average and has not stolen bases since joining the Blue Jays. Revere should not be used in daily leagues and should not be in your season long lineups.


Category: , Game Recaps

Revere had his best game as a Blue Jay on Thursday night going 3-for-4 with three runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: Hitting 9th in the Blue Jays' order will only slightly impact Revere's fantasy value. As he showed tonight, Revere will be a steady source of runs for the remainder of the season, as all three times he reached base, he scored. Toronto's league leading offense led by Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista, and Edwin Encarnacion will have plenty of opportunities to increase Revere's value going forward.


Category: , Game Recaps

Since being traded to Toronto on July 31, Revere remains without a hit. After last night's 0-for-3 performance, Revere is now marred in an 0-for-13 slump with his new club.

Fantasy Impact: Despite his early struggles, Revere should prove to be quite valuable with the Blue Jays and their high powered offense. Though he has batted 9th in three of his first four games with Toronto, Revere will still have plenty of opportunities to score runs as he has Troy Tulowitski and Josh Donaldson batting 1st and 2nd in the Jays' lineup, as they have 58 and 78 RBI, respectively, on the season. Revere's average will likely climb back between .290 and .300 over the next few weeks and should remain in all fantasy lineups going forward.

The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired OF Ben Revere from the Philadelphia Phillies. (Source: Todd Zolecki on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Revere was one of the few bright spots offensively for the Phillies this season. The CF is hitting .298/.334/.374 with a homer and 24 steals. His role and lineup spot in Toronto is TBD, but it's rumored that he'll see a regular spot in the order. The deal is likely to only increase his value, even if he's batting lower in the order, as he goes from one of the worst offenses in the league to the best.

Pirates interested in Ben Revere

Mon, Jul 13th 10:41am EDT
By Blaine Blontz

The Pittsburgh Pirates are interested in acquiring Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere, according to Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. (Source: Rob Beirtempfel on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Revere has become a fantasy relevant OF after a slow start, posting a line of .294/.335/.377 with 21 stolen bases in 26 attempts. The Pirates have a crowded OF, so Revere could actually see a drop in value if he's dealt and moved out of an everyday role.


Category: , Rumors

The Los Angeles Angels and Philadelphia Phillies nearly completed a trade that would have sent outfielder Ben Revere to the Halos, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe. (Source: Nick Cafardo)

Fantasy Impact: The Angels have been tied to Revere since May, as they've been looking to add offense. Trades are likely to further diminish an already lackluster Phillies offense this summer. Revere's fantasy stock would see a boost hitting in front of Mike Trout and Albert Pujols.


Category: , Rumors

Ben Revere went 1-for-4 in the Phillies 7-4 loss to Milwaukee on Monday. Revere scored and drove in a run, on an RBI groundout.

Fantasy Impact: Revere has been on fire over the last few weeks. Over the past 14 days, he's hit to the tune of a .391 average. Over the last 30 days, a .349 average. The problem is, he's not going to help you in any counting stat other than steals, of which he has 18. The Phillies offense is anemic and they don't score runs often. However, if you need steals and average, Revere is your guy.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere went 3-for-6 in the Phillies 11-8 win over the Yankees Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Revere scored two runs and drove in one run. He also collected a stolen base, which filled the stat line for Revere, as we don't expect much power from him. Hitting behind a hot Maikel Franco, this is the type of line we can expect from Revere if he can get hot. He still isn't playing to his potential, so buy-low if you can.

Ben Revere scores run

Fri, Jun 19th 11:57am EDT
By Matthew Jay Hutcheson Jr

Ben Revere went 2-for-4 with one run scored in Thursday's win over Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact: The Phillies' offense is awful and has been especially awful during their 9-game losing streak, which was broken last night. Revere scored on Ryan Howard's, eventually, game winning home run which put the Phillies up 2-1. Revere will not score many runs which is a product of his offense. Unless he's traded, he's likely a one category player.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in Wednesday's loss to Baltimore. The Phillies have been awful over their 9-game losing streak and Revere's counting stats have suffered for it.

Fantasy Impact: Revere did collect his 16th stolen base on Wednesday. Revere has become a one, maybe two, category player. He's not scoring many runs because of the Phillies lineup. He's not hitting for his usual average. Revere looks to be, like guys like Billy Hamilton, only a value in the stolen base game.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere went 0-for-4 with one strikeout in Monday's loss to Baltimore. The hitless game ended Ben Revere's 7-game hit streak in which he had four multi-hit games.

Fantasy Impact: The Phillies aren't going to score many runs and that diminishes Revere's value. Revere is likely going to be a two-category player moving forward. His average is finally starting to rise and in his seven-game hit streak Revere had three stolen bases. Things look to be pointing up for Revere. Buy-low if you need steals as you can likely get him cheap.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere has been moved permanently top right field for the Phillies and will platoon with Jeff Francoeur. With Cody Asche now back in the big leagues and playing left field, Revere now has to earn a spot.

Fantasy Impact: This move significantly decreases Revere's value, although it hasn't been great all year. You can't steal bases or hit if you're not on the field. Those who are playing Revere everyday will need to look into finding a replacement.


Category: , Transactions

Ben Revere went 0-for-4 with one run and two strikeouts in a loss to Colorado Friday. The Phillies were shut down for the most part on Friday as Colorado pitcher Chad Bettis had a perfect game after six. Revere broke that up by reaching on an error, but that won't help fantasy owners.

Fantasy Impact: The good news is Revere is on a 6-game hitting streak and is 9-for-26 in that span. The bad news is that he has zero stolen bases over in those games. Revere can't seem to take that next step in 2015 as he's still only hitting .263 and has only 9 steals. Owners are still hoping he can improve on those numbers. If he can't, his value is very little.


Category: , Game Recaps

The Phillies were shut down by the Mets on Wednesday, losing 7-0. Mets rookie Noah Syndergaard was dominant going 7.1 innings in the shutout.

Fantasy Impact: Revere collected two more hits and has four hits in the last two games. He's on a six-game hitting streak and has nine hits in that span. Fantasy owners have seen this before this year with regression to follow. Hopefully this streak can be a turning point for Revere.


Category: , Game Recaps

The Philadelphia Phillies lost to the New York Mets 6-3 on Monday. Ben Revere went 1-for-5 in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Revere scored one run, but he struck out twice. Fantasy owners are still waiting for Revere to take that jump in the 2015 season. His average has stalled around the .260 mark for the past few weeks. Fantasy owners remain hopeful that Revere can make a jump in the coming weeks. Maybe a change in scenery could help Revere. Keep tabs on him.


Category: , Game Recaps

The Phillies had quite a day on Saturday, scoring 8 runs off of Stephen Strasburg. The blow up comes one day after being held in check by Max Scherzer. Revere scored 3 of those 8 runs and drove in one himself.

Fantasy Impact: Revere finished 2-for-4 with three runs, one RBI, and one walk. This is the type of leadoff hitter the Angels are looking for, as the Angels have been in talks with the Phillies about Revere. Revere is getting better as the season goes along.


Category: , Game Recaps

The Phillies lost 2-1 to the Nationals on Friday and their leadoff man, Ben Revere, went 1-for-4 in the outing.

Fantasy Impact: Subject to recent trade rumors, Ben Revere is still doing what Ben Revere does. He now has eight hits and three steals in his last six games. For those who haven't heard, Revere's name has been linked with the Angels as they are pursuing a bat. Particularly, a leadoff bat that plays outfield. If Revere can land in L.A., his value shoots way up. Keep tabs on him in the coming days and weeks.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere went 1-for-5 and stole a bag in the Phillies 6-5 loss to Colorado on Tuesday. The loss ended the Phillies' 6-game winning streak, but Revere was able to keep his mini-hit streak alive.

Fantasy Impact: Revere has a small three-game hit streak going, but in those three games he has a total of seven hits after having three in both Sunday and Monday's games. With his steal last night, his total is up to nine. After starting off slow, Revere has had one steal in each of the last three games. His average(.266) and steal(9) totals are slowly rising, but-low on him while you still can.


Category: , Game Recaps

According to Ken Rosenthal on Twitter, scouts are tracking Phillies OF Ben Revere for a possible trade. With the crowded Phillies outfield, and the impending returns of Domonic Brown and Cody Asche, Revere is the odd man out.

Fantasy Impact: It was reported that the Angles are interested in Revere, which would skyrocket Revere's fantasy value. The Angels need a lead-off hitter and Revere could be it. Revere would instantly be a candidate for a big increase in runs, batting in front of guys like Calhoun, Trout, and Pujols. Keep tabs on the updates as the news progresses.


Category: , Rumors

Ben Revere has three hits tonight in a win over Colorado. The Phillies have won six games in a row. And yes, that sentence is as surprising for you to read as it is for me to write. Revere has gone 3-for-4 in two straight games now and those six hits have shot his average up to just under .270.

Fantasy Impact: Along with the hits, Revere has had one stolen base in two straight games as well. His steal total is up to 8 bags. This is the type of game we expect from Revere. He obviously won't have three hits every game. But, a few hits as a stolen base is what you draft him for. He remains a buy-low candidate right now, but he won't for much longer. Get him cheap while you can.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere went 0-for-4 in Friday's 4-3 win over Arizona. Revere had a modest hit streak going, but that ended at 5 games after Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Revere has been aggravating for fantasy owners this year. He's not hitting for an average we expected and he's not stealing any bases. As Revere gets on base more, his steals should increase. At least that's what fantasy owners are hoping.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere went 1-for-4 with an RBI ground out in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Impact: Revere now has a four game hit streak. He also has 14 hits in his last 10 games. So, even though his average is still hovering around .250, Revere is still seeing and hitting the ball well. As long as Revere is collecting hits, he will provide value for your fantasy team. Just be patient.


Category: , Game Recaps

The Phillies lost big on Tuesday night, but Ben Revere was one of few bright spots. Revere went 1-for-4, scored one run and drove in one on an RBI double.

Fantasy Impact: Revere now has a three game hitting streak. Even though he's 3-for-13 in those games, any hitting streak is welcome for Revere. He seems to be turning things around as his average has shot up over 100 points in the past few weeks. You can still buy-low on Revere, and if you can you should.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere went hitless in four at-bats in Saturday's loss to the Mets. Revere did contribute in other ways though. After drawing a walk, he stole one base and scored a run.

Fantasy Impact: This was his worst game from the plate since May 1st. Even with going hitless, Revere did steal his sixth bag of the season. Revere has also been exceptional, even with his early season struggles, in the strikeout category. Revere has only struck out fourteen times in 114 at-bats.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben revere went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in the Phillies' 3-1 victory over Matt Harvey and the Mets on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Revere now has 5 hits in his last two games, and 10 in his last five games. This onslaught has his average sitting at a respectable .264. However, fantasy owners are looking for more from Revere. His 5 stolen bases are also a bit of a disappointment with a month already gone from the season. But, as he starts getting on base more, his steals should go up as well.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere had an incredible night from the plate on Wednesday against Atlanta. Following last night's game when the Phillies were shut out, Ben Revere collected four hits, two runs, and one RBI. He had a career high three doubles tonight.

Fantasy Impact: Revere's average continues to go up. Following tonight's four hit campaign, his average is up to .264. Revere has 10 hits in his last 23 at-bats. Surprisingly, he's only owned in 58% of Yahoo leagues. If you're a Yahoo player and Revere is on your waiver wire, pick him up NOW.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revre finished 2-for-5 with one run scored in Monday's 5-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves. Since May 1st, Revre has gone 7-18(.389), and as result his average is up to .247.

Fantasy Impact: The fact that Revere has a slow April has been well documented. Starting off May with 7 hits in 4 games is giving some credence to those statistics. Revere's average has shot up nearly 100 points in a matter of days. If you want Revere at his best, buy low on him now.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere sparked the Phillies offense in a 6-2 victory over Miami. Revere finished Sunday's game 3-for-5 with one RBI and one run scored.

Fantasy Impact: Sunday's three hit affair was only Revere's third multi-hit game of the season. On a positive note, Revere's career statistics show he gets better month-by- month. Expect the hits to start piling up.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere was out of the Phillies' lineup this afternoon against St. Louis. With lefty Tim Cooney on the mound, manager Ryne Sandberg decided to have Herrera and Galvis in the top two spots today.

Fantasy Impact: No injury, no need to panic. A day of rest is always good too. We know what Revere will provide from a fantasy perspective, and he remains a decent OF3 or UTIL option.


Category: , Game Recaps

Ben Revere finished 1-for-4 with a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals. However, he finished with no counting stats.

Fantasy Impact: Revere's average now sits at .218. It's not great, not even good, but it's better than the .150 average he had a two weeks ago. Revere's April struggles have been well documented, and as April is winding down, we're seeing Revere start to heat up. Buy low on Revere if you can.


Category: , Game Recaps

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.


Category: , Game Recaps

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.


Category: , Game Recaps

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.


Category: , Game Recaps

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.


Category: , Game Recaps

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.


Category: , Game Recaps

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.


Category: , Game Recaps

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.


Category: , Game Recaps

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.


Category: , Game Recaps

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

Sat, Apr 4th 10:41pm EDT
By Matthew Jay Hutcheson Jr

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.


Category: , Game Recaps

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.

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:

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.

Revere swipes a bag

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:

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:

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.

Ben Revere's average dipped to .125 after going 1-4 in a 6-0 loss to Detroit. (Source:

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:

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:

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:

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.
