Latest Update Ben Revere swipes 35th base Mon Aug, 18, 03:41 AM
Has great speed and contact-hitting ability. Doesn't strike out much and sets the table well. Is also a solid defensive outfielder with the range to play center field.
Flaws: : Doesn't have a great outfield arm, though he is accurate. Also lacks the extra-base power often associated with big-league outfielders. Could stand to walk more often.
Revere has been swinging a hot bat of late, going 12-for-29 (.414 BA) over his last six games, but has just one extra-base hit and zero RBI to show for it. However, he has managed to swipe four bases in that stretch as he continues to be a solid contributor in both batting average (.314 BA) and stolen bases (35) sitting atop the Phillies inconsistent lineup.

In his second season with the Phillies, Revere is now slashing .311/.328/.368 with sitting third in the National League with 34 stolen bases. Outside of his work on the base paths, the Phillies outfielder has just 17 extra-base hits in 437 at-bats which has led to only 13 RBI on the season, so as long as you are not counting on his stats outside of the steals he is a solid complimentary piece while getting the green light often down the stretch.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Revere is hitting (6-for-11) in the two games thus far against the Astros while adding to his NL leading number of base hits laced (106). Revere came into Wednesday's contest with the title of the hardest hitter to strikeout among NL hitters at one strikeout per 11.97 plate appearance, a ratio that would increase after Wednesday's stellar performance at the plate as he completed the game without a strikeout.Analyst: Michael Pichan
