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.

The Phillies are massive underdogs (+200) against the Nationals Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.


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 Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Phillies' Ben Revere OK with work in left field


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."


Phillies' Ben Revere learning to bunt for base hits


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Phillies outfielder and leadoff hitter Ben Revere has been practicing bunting for base hits, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer

Manager Ryne Sandberg said the goal is for Revere to notch 10-to-15 base hits from bunts this upcoming season. A year ago, Revere posted a career-best .306 batting average. Both Revere and Sandberg are hoping if this skill develops that his numbers can increase even more. 

"Just having that is going to put more pressure on the defense," Revere said. "Are we going to come up or are we going to stay back? Because I can slap a line drive right by them that could be for a base hit or a double. The infield won't know what to do."


Phillies' Ben Revere out to overcome pain-filled 2014 season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Phillies centerfielder Ben Revere revealed Tuesday he dealt with a lot of pain in his right ankle for much of the 2014 season. In 2013, Revere's season was cut short after he fractured his ankle, which required surgical screws to be placed in it. The screws stayed in his ankle during the 2014 season.

"The more the season went on it just got worse and worse and worse," Revere said. 

He also received much scarier news from doctors after the season was over.

"The doctors told me after the surgery that the screws were going into my nerves and that is what was causing all the pain," Revere said. "They told me I was lucky I didn't get any nerve damage or anything. It's fully healed now. I can do everything. I can do power lifting. I couldn't even squat last year. I'm squatting 400 pounds now. Last year, my hamstring [shut] down, my quads were weak. Now, I'm getting all my strength back."

New Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said he thinks Revere needs to work on his extra-base hitting heading into the 2015 season.

"He hasn't found his full stride on what he can do on a baseball field," Sandberg said. "He's a strong kid, but he hits all singles. For me, that doesn't add up. I see him as a potential 30 to 40 doubles type of a hitter mainly because he makes so much contact and he is strong. He has the ability to pop the ball to the gaps and down the lines. He does use the whole field when he hits and he's a base stealer, so for me that shows the potential to translate into a doubles hitter."

Revere hit .306 in 2014 with 28 RBI and 71 runs scored in 601 at-bats.


Phillies lock up Domonic Brown, Ben Revere for 2015


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) The Phillies have avoided arbitration with outfielders Domonic Brown and Ben Revere prior to Friday's deadline, reports the Philadelphia Daily News. Revere signed a $.1 million contract, while Brown settled for $2.5 million for 2015. Brown was arbitration-eligible for the first time this season, while Revere entered his second-year of eligibility after his 2014 campaign.

Brown had a bit of a down year after being selected to the All-Star game in 2013. He hit .235 with 10 home runs last season. Revere hit .306 with two homers and 28 RBI over 601 at-bats in 2014.


Phillies OF Ben Revere's ankle pain-free


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2014) Phillies outfielder Ben Revere said Saturday that he's finally pain-free after dealing with an ankle injury all season, MLB.com reports.

"I feel no pain," he said. "I've been running and cutting. No pain. I feel good. It slowed me up definitely. Some jumps after the ball I hesitated because of it. I knew it was there. Some bases I tried to steal, running down the line I'd slow down, hitting, trying to get out of the box, diving for a ball. It was tough. It was so frustrating."

Revere broke his ankle in July 2013 and played with screws in the ankle in 2014, resulting in a frequent pained expression on his face throughout the season. He had the screws removed at the end of September and believes he can improve on his statistics next season. Revere hit .306/.325/.361 with two home runs, 28 RBI and 49 stolen bases in 601 at-bats in 2014.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
