Phillies slide 2B Chase Utley back to No. 3 spot in order


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) With Ben Revere back in the starting lineup, Phillies second baseman Chase Utley slid back to the No. 3 hole  for Friday's contest against the Nationals.

Utley recorded his first triple of the season on Thursday, and is has had a hit in each of his last six games. He is hitting .450 (9 for 20) with four doubles, a triple and three RBI over that span. He owns a .169/.250/.292 slash line with three homers and 18 RBI over 148 plate appearances this season.

Philadelphia is considered an underdog (+245) at Washington, per VegasInsider.com.


Phillies LF Ben Revere: I'm not distracted by trade talk


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) The rumored talks between the Angels and Phillies in which the former is targeting left fielder Ben Revere are real, according to CSNPhilly.com. But Revere is claiming to be unaffected by them.

"For some people, it might be distracting, but it's not for me," he said. "The only thing I'm doing is trying to get ready to help my team win. ... There's always going to be talk. Everyone has to deal with it."

The Angels are hoping to bolster a struggling offense. But he certainly won't provide much punch. He tied for the National League lead in 2014 with 184 hits, but all but 22 were singles. He owns a .259/.333/.363 slash line this season.


Phillies OF Ben Revere gets a breather on Thursday vs. Rockies


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) Phillies outfielder Ben Revere is getting just his second day off this month, as he is being held out of the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against the Rockies. Revere has been hitting fairly well lately, batting .268 with three RBI and three stolen bases over his last 10 games.

Darin Ruf will handle left field and bat third, while shortstop Freddy Galvis will hit lead-off for the first time this year. 


Report: Teams scouting Phillies OF Ben Revere for possible deal


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) Phillies outfielder Ben Revere could become a trade piece this summer. Revere has played fairly well this year, though his .314 on-base percentage is rather low for a lead-off hitter.

Still, Revere is 8 for 11 in stolen base attempts and plays a tremendous outfield, in all three positions. He also finished fifth in the National League with a .306 batting average in 2014.

When the Phillies decide to return Domonic Brown and Cody Asche to the team, they will have a bit of a roster crunch, making Revere the logical one to go.

The Angels are one team that could have interest in the speedy outfielder, but they are still in "exploratory mode" and are "not rushing in any direction" right now, according to MLB.com 


Phillies OF Ben Revere collects three hits in Monday's win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Phillies outfielder Ben Revere went 3 for 4 at the plate to help lead the Phillies to a 4-3 win over the Rockies on Monday.

Revere also scored a run and walked once during the game. Revere is now 16 for 48 over his last 12 games with five RBI and six runs scored. He is currently hitting .268 on the season.


Phillies LF Ben Revere benched Saturday for first time in May


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Phillies leadoff hitter and left fielder Ben Revere has not produced a multi-hit game since May 6. He will not have a chance to produce anything Saturday against Arizona unless he comes off the bench.

Grady Sizemore will play his position while Obudel Herrera will occupy the leadoff spot that was his earlier in the year.

Revere has just six hits in his last 34 at-bats and has scored three runs in his last eight games.


Angels looking for deals to help struggling offense


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) Even though the Angels dealt away slugging outfielder Josh Hamilton, the team is apparently on the lookout for offensive help. CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman hears the team is interested in Phillies outfielder Ben Revere, though, as Heyman notes, Revere wouldn't necessarily fill the offensive gap left by Hamilton. 

The Angels are currently tied with the White Sox for the fewest runs scored per game (3.8) in the American League, entering play on Friday. They also have the third-fewest home runs in the league, so their need for offense is quite apparent. 


Phillies OF Ben Revere not concerned with trade talk


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Phillies outfielder Ben Revere said he can't concern himself about any potential talks concerning the organization trading him away. 

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, a reporter informed Revere that his name was on trading block. Revere said that it happens to every player at some point in the sport. 

"I know it's a business," Revere said. "I know we need some guys to help this program out, this organization out. If I do , it's a part of the game. But the only thing I'm trying to do is help the team win. I'm not worrying about it. If it does happen, it happens. If it doesn't, I'm going to try to bring some W's to this team."


With lefty on the mound, Phillies' Darin Ruf returns to lineup


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/13/2015) Phillies' Darin Ruf is starting in left field and batting cleanup on Wednesday against the Pirates. Ruf was out of the lineup each of the last two games with a right-hander on the mound. Ruf is batting just .137 against righties this year. 

But with left-hander Francisco Liriano on the bump Wednesday, Ruf will look to break out of a 6-for-30 slump over his last 10 games. 

Ben Revere will slide over and play center field and Ryan Howard moves down to fifth in the batting order on Wednesday. 


Phillies' Ben Revere doubles, drives in run in loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Phillies left fielder Ben Revere went 1 for 4 in Tuesday's loss to Pittsburgh. 

Revere doubled, scored once and drove in a run. He now has seven doubles and 10 RBI on the season. 


Ryan Howard out of Phillies lineup


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Ryan Howard is not in the Phillies' lineup for Saturday's game. The first baseman will be rested for the fifth time this year.

Phillies' Revere smacks three doubles vs. Braves Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Phillies right fielder Ben Revere went 4 for 5 with three doubles, one RBI and two runs scored in his team's 7-5 loss to the Braves Wednesday.

Phillies LF Ben Revere goes 3 for 5 in loss on Sunday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/4/2015) After a sluggish start to the 2015 season, Phillies left fielder Ben Revere may be starting to turn things around. He went 3 for 5 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Marlins. Revere now has hits in eight of his last nine games (the only game he didn't record a hit was April 30, a game in which he did not start).

Over that nine-game stretch, Revere is hitting .353 with a double, a triple and four RBI, batting mostly from the leadoff spot in the lineup. He'll look to continue his hot-hitting ways when the Phillies open a three-game series against the Braves in Atlanta on Monday. He is a lifetime .444 hitter (4 for 9) against Braves' starter Alex Wood, who is expected to toe the rubber on Monday.


Phillies OF Ben Revere returns to leadoff spot Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Phillies outfielder Ben Revere returned to the leadoff spot Friday against the Braves after Odubel Herrera spent the last nine games atop the lineup.

“I would like for him to settle in there and be a catalyst at the top of the order,” manager Ryne Sandberg said, per Philly.com. “With his base stealing ability and his ability to swing the bat and get on base like he did last year. I would like to see him settle in there, that’s for sure.”

Revere carries a five-game hitting streak into Friday's contest. He is batting .313 (5 for 16) with one double, two triples, two RBI, one walk, three runs and two stolen bases in that span.


Phillies OF Revere finally drives in runs with Tuesday triple


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) There's apparently nothing unlucky about the number 13 for Phillies outfielder Ben Revere. He finally drove in his first runs Tuesday night in his 13th game of the season.

Revere, who has three hits in his last eight at-bats after opening the season on a 5-for-37 slide, tripled in two runs in the seventh inning to give his team a three-run cushion in a victory over Miami. He also walked in the game.


Struggling Phillies OF Revere has good history vs. Haren


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) There is both good and bad news regarding Phillies outfielder Ben Revere and his matchup Tuesday night against Miami starter Dan Haren.

The good news is that he is 8 for 18 lifetime against the right-hander, per the Philadelphia Daily News The bad news is that he is immersed in a season-long slump and owns a slash line of .167/.205/.190. He does have two hits in his last five at-bats, making him a bit of a breakout candidate.


Phillies outfielder Ben Revere not changing approach despite slump


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Phillies outfielder Ben Revere has seen his share of struggles at the plate to start the season. He has gone just 7 for 42 to start the season, but the six-year veteran was able to snag a pair of hits over the weekend to boost his average and possibly break out of an early slump, reports Philly.com.

"No question about it," manager Ryne Sandberg said Sunday. "A little bit more aggressive at home plate to give himself a chance. He hits. He's a .300 hitter. So when he heats up, he really does good things for us."

Revere didn't think his approach needed to change to see better results.

"Of course the average says you need to change something, but the way I've been hitting the ball says I don't," he said over the weekend. "It's just one of those deals. It just [stinks]. . . . You hit the ball hard and you can't show nothing for it."


Phillies' Chase Utley out of lineup Sunday vs. Nationals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals.

It's the second day off this season for Utley, who has started six straight games but has hit just .119/.170/.262 in 42 at-bats this April and is 0 for 17 in his last four games. Cesar Hernandez will start at second base in his place.

Left fielder Ben Revere is back in the starting lineup after three straight games on the bench. He went 1 for 1 with a double, a stolen base and two runs scored Saturday after entering the game as a pinch runner in the seventh inning.

Phillies' Ben Revere hitting ball hard, still struggling


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Over his career, Phillies outfielder Ben Revere has hit nearly 70 points lower in April than from May onward. This season, Revere is off to an even slower start, with a .135 average. He's 1 for 13 on the current road trip and was not in Saturday's starting lineup. 

"I can't find nothing right now," Revere said of his struggles, per MLB.com. "But you have to keep your head up. It's a long season. Hopefully I've got a lot more at-bats and a lot more games to play. If I can do that, I'll be alright. I've started slow before. As soon as the ball starts falling, the sky's the limit."

Interestingly, Revere thinks he's swinging the bat better than usual, even though the hits aren't falling. "I think this is the first time in April that I've hit the ball as hard as I have," he said. "I don't know how many times I've lined out to guys, but that's the game of baseball."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Phillies center fielder Ben Revere has started in left field for three consecutive games, with Rule 5 pick Odubel Herrera in center field, and the outfielder is OK with the move, which may or may not translate into time in left field during the regular season, MLB.com reports.

"It's been a little while since I've played there," Revere said. "I really adjust quickly. It won't be anything I'm nervous about. They said they just want to see another bat in the lineup, so I just do what the coaches say. Maybe we'll see it in the regular season, but it's just to get prepared for it."

Revere hasn't played left field in a regular-season game since 2012. Herrera entered play Monday batting .368 with one double, two walks and four stolen bases, and one scout called him the second-best hitter on the team behind Chase Utley.


Phillies' Ben Revere seeing time in left field during spring


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Phillies outfielder Ben Revere was told Friday he will see more time in left field this spring. Revere, who primarily plays center, doesn't know how long the adjustment will be for, but is doing whatever he can to help the team, reports MLB.com.

"Never know. You never know," Revere said Saturday morning. "Definitely a lot of changes this spring and everything, so if it's permanent, got to be ready for it. I'm ready for it. Just something to help get some guys in the lineup, get some bats in the lineup," Revere said. "If it's something I have to do, I have to do [it.] If they move me back to center, I'll be ready for it. But if I play left, I'll be ready for that, too."

Manager Ryne Sandberg chalked it up to testing things out in spring training.

"Kind of all part of spring training, to try some different things and some different possibilities," Sandberg said. "Something I wanted to look at. All part of spring training."
