|Ben Revere making contact again|
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(5/22/13) Though Ben Revere missed most of last week, sitting out while he worked on his swing, it's been a productive May so far for the Phillies' speedster. Revere is batting .390 with three stolen bases so far this month, and more frequent contact has played a role in his improvement.
Owners won't likely expect Revere to maintain an average much over .300 going forward, and his recent exploits have been fueled by an unsustainably high BABIP. However, he has struck out only four times in 41 at-bats this month, which is more typical for Revere than the 16 percent strikeout-per-at bat rate he put up last month.
Revere is still batting just .260 for the season, as his numbers are weighed down by his poor April. Forget the year-to-date stats and look for Revere to help with batting average, steals and runs in most mixed Rotisserie leagues over the remainder of the season.

(5/22/13) Phillies outfielder Ben Revere went 3 for 5 with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over Miami.
Revere doubled once and singled twice. Revere has been on fire in May, as he is 16 for 41 (.390) with a .908 OPS. However, his cold April has his overall line at just .260/.302/.398.
|Phillies GM worried about struggling outfielders?|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/21/13) Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. tried to remain upbeat Tuesday when talking about struggling outfielders Ben Revere and Delmon Young.
"Ben has had a little bit of a slow start, but he has done some things better lately even though he had a rough night (Monday in Miami)," Amaro told The Philadelphia Inquirer. "I think Ben is a better player than we’ve seen so far. Delmon is a better player, too."
Although, Amaro had an interesting answer when asked "how long can you stick" with Revere and Young.
“I don’t know, but at some point it does have to kick in," he said. "We’ll see how things continue to play out."
|Ben Revere shines in return to lineup|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/19/13) Phillies outfielder Ben Revere made it back into the starting lineup Sunday against the Reds after sitting out four games to work on his swing. It seems the time off paid off.
Revere tied a season-high with three hits, including his second double, in four at-bats. He added one run and his eighth stolen base. Revere is batting .435 (10 for 23) in his last 10 games (seven starts).
|Ben Revere losing playing time|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/18/13) Despite batting .357 with a .438 on-base percentage in his last 13 games, Phillies outfielder Ben Revere was out of the starting lineup for a season-high fourth game in a row Saturday against the Reds. John Mayberry got the start in Revere's place.
Revere has been limited to six starts against left-handed pitchers this season, but only two of the four games he has sat out have been against lefties.
Revere told the Philadelphia Inquirer Saturday that he has been getting time off to work on his swing. Revere, who has just two extra-base hits in 118 at-bats, said he is trying to work on driving the ball.
"We've kind of been talking and going back to my old films from the minor leagues with the Twins and trying to find that power stroke," Revere said. "I know back then I was a 10-triple guy, it was gap-to-gap with everything, and they want me to get back to that and I do too. That’s the stuff I’m working on."
|After seemingly freeing up center field for him by dealing Denard Span to the Nationals, the Twins then went and dealt Ben Revere to the Phillies one week later. Given the way Revere performed in a semi-regular role in 2012, he deserved to be starting for someone. The Twins already knew he was an excellent base-stealer. When that .326 batting average he had accumulated over six minor-league seasons began to translate -- he hit .358 during a 39-game stretch from June 22 to Aug. 6 -- that was it. His time had come. The Twins either had to commit to a slap-hitting base-stealer in their outfield, or they had to swing a deal. They found a taker in Philadelphia, who needed a center fielder after trading away Shane Victorino in July. Provided Revere bats at the top of the lineup, he'll be under some pressure to improve his below-average walk rate, which would only lead to more stolen bases. Whether or not he does could be the difference between him being a low-end steals specialist or a legitimate every-week option in Fantasy. One thing's for sure, though: He's going to steal some bases. If you liked Emilio Bonifacio at this time last year, Revere should be on your radar. (Updated 12/6/12)|
