Ben Revere signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Friday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports. Revere joins the Angels after being released by the Reds last Sunday.
Revere is a depth signing by the Angels and will begin the season in Triple A. If the veteran outfielder eventually gets the call-up to the big leagues he is worth an add-in deeper fantasy formats for his ability to steal bases.
The Reds, in a flurry of roster moves Thursday, have reassigned OF Ben Revere.
Revere was a long shot to make the team out of camp. He is seen more as minor league depth and a safeguard should Billy Hamilton be injured or traded. Revere will likely explore other options in the league before deciding whether to accept the assignment to AAA Louisville.
The Cincinnati Reds signed OF Ben Revere to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
The deal is expected to be worth between $1-$1.5M if he makes it out of spring with the big league club. With 21 stolen bases in 2017, he'd be another source of stolen bases that fantasy owners could pick up off of waivers if he were to see regular playing time.
Ben Revere went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs on Tuesday as the Angels dispatched of the Athletics.
Revere has been hot over the last month hitting .324 with nine stolen bases. If fantasy owners are needing speed heading into the playoffs than Revere could be a good pickup.
Ben Revere had an average night on Sunday in the loss to the Astros. He went 1-for-4, hitting a triple. Unfortunately, his triple led to nothing as he was left on base after. He struck out and struggled to get on base in his other three at-bats.
Revere played in his sixth-straight game on Sunday. He hasn’t really got anything going that is worth utilizing him in fantasy. Although his price is very cheap on DFS, he hasn’t showed enough to be paid for.
