Ben Revere suffers broken right foot

Phillies outfielder Ben Revere suffered a broken right foot during the first game of today’s double-header against the White Sox. In the bottom of the eleventh, Revere came to the plate with a runner on first base and one out with his team trailing 5-4. He fouled an Addison Reed pitch off of his ankle and appeared to be in a great deal of pain. As the Phillies had just exhausted their final bench player in John McDonald pinch-running for Humberto Quintero, Revere stayed in the game, only to hit into a game-ending 5-4-3 double play.

Per Todd Zolecki, x-rays taken after the game revealed a broken right foot and Revere will head to the disabled list and be evaluated by a specialist on Monday. John Mayberry was inserted into the lineup, starting in center field for the second game.

After a ghastly April, Revere had been one of the Phillies’ most productive hitters. With a 2-for-6 performance today, he goes on the disabled list with a .305 average, but was out-hit by only Yasiel Puig since the start of June. He is also the only Phillie to have reached double-digits in stolen bases. His injury comes at a time when the Phillies are wavering between buyer and seller status.

    You mean to tell me I cant even read a Phillies article about a player breaking his foot without coming across Yasiel Puig’s name?!

      I had Puig Fatigue before he even made it to the majors. I really do enjoy watching him play….but jeez, I don’t need to hear about ever second of his existence.

    Time to start selling. That farm system is barren.

      Agreed. It was a great run since 2007 but it’s all over.

      Name 10 players in the farm system. I guarantee the Philly farm system has as many projected major league players as any other farm system. people declaring this a poor system either don’t care to follow the minor leagues and listen to the so called experts (you know the same guys that were writing about politics or religion last year.) or don’t recognize the fact that the major league roster (bullpen) is loaded with talent earning their experience at the top level of the game. Will the Phillies make the playoffs ? I don’t know. but I think the future will be just fine when the kids in the minors get a little more time.

        SP Jesse Biddle, 3B Maikel Franco, 3B Cody Asche, C Tommy Joseph, SP Adam Morgan, SP Ethan Martin, and SS Roman Quinn.

        I’m not sure any of these guys are future all stars but there is certainly everyday starting players on this list. These guys could be a core group building the next contender.

    Well… This is a kick to the teeth, huh? The kid was just starting to shine. Good thing we have a healthy, productive Ryan Howard to….oh…(hangs head, dejected).
