|Ben Revere looking closer to normal|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/14/13) Ben Revere had 19 extra-base hits and 29 walks last year and still averaged more Head-to-Head points per game than Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz.
The center fielder Phillies is bad at many things, and those expecting him to get better at those things are fooling themselves. But the bottom line is he doesn't have to get better at those things to matter in Fantasy. He just has to continue doing the two things he does well: make contact and run, run, run.
The two are interrelated. Since he doesn't walk, his base-stealing depends on him hitting his way on base, and he struggled to do that earlier this year. Now, not so much. He's batting .303 (27 for 89) over his last 24 games, and sure enough, he has eight steals during that stretch.
And sure enough, he's the 40th-best outfielder in Head-to-Head leagues during that stretch. Based on last year's results, I think he comes closer to maintaining this pace than not, so don't sleep on him.

(6/13/13) Taking on his former team Thursday, Phillies center fielder Ben Revere went 4 for 6 with his second triple and 15th stolen base of the season in his team's 3-2 win over the Twins. He scored two of his team's three runs in the win.
Revere is 7 of 10 in his last two games against the Twins, bringing his batting average up to .266 in 207 at-bats.
|Ben Revere back in leadoff spot|
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/13/13) After a six-game run batting sixth, fourth, ninth and second, Phillies outfielder Ben Revere is back in the leadoff spot Thursday against the Twins.
Revere is hitting .265 with four steals and a double in eight June games. He has a .353 average in 34 at-bats as the No. 2 hitter but has hit .198 with a .254 OBP in 106 at-bats leading off.
|Ben Revere feels everything is 'coming together'|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/5/13) After an abysmal April, Phillies outfielder Ben Revere has been much improved since the calendar turned to May. In 30 games (26 starts) since May 1, Revere is batting .284 (27 for 95) with eight stolen bases.
His batting average has gone from .200 to .243 in that span.
"I'm not trying to put any pressure on myself; it's a long season," he said, per The Philadelphia Daily News. "I take it one game at a time, nice and easy. But each and every day I feel like I'm finding my stroke."
Revere, who was moved out of the leadoff spot after 15 games, admits he was pressing in his first month with his new team.
"A little bit," Revere said. "I just kind of had to figure some stuff out. I've made good contact and everything, just didn't have anything to show for it. Now slowly I'm having those games, two hits or three hits, or one hit and hitting the ball hard. Everything feels like it's coming together."
|Ben Revere steals two bases Monday|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/3/13) Phillies center fielder Ben Revere went 2 for 5 with a run, an RBI and two stolen bases in a 7-2 win over the Marlins Monday night.
It was the first two-steal game of the season for Revere, who has 13 stolen bases in 2013 after stealing 40 in 2012. He has hit .250 and scored 19 runs in 180 at-bats during his first season with the Phillies.
|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)|
