Latest Update Cubs have expressed interest in Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere. Sat Dec, 13, 10:19 PM
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 would be an interesting addition if the Cubs weren't sold on Arismendy Alcantara playing center field and/or leading off next season. He probably wouldn't cost too much and he'd be a good table-setter for the mass of youngsters hitting behind him. He's receiving a fair amount of attention and will always be a nice mid-to-late round fantasy outfielder who can contribute in three categories. Analyst: Howard Bender
The Phillies love hearing this as Revere is expected to openm the season as their starting center fielder and leadoff hitter. He's posted an average over .300 in each of his last two seasons and his OBP hasn't been lower than .325 in his last three. He's basically a two or three category guy in fantasy -- steals, average and runs scored -- and, if healthy, could prove to be a solid asset this season.Analyst: Howard Bender
Having the procedure done now allows plenty of time for Revere to heal. C9onsidering that he makes his living with his legs, he's going to need all the extra healing time he can get.Analyst: Howard Bender
Revere had a great 2014 season, for both the Phillies organization, and his fantasy owners. The removal of two screws should not affect his status for spring training, and Revere will be looking to replicate his 2014 numbers in 2015.Analyst: Colby Conway
