Center fielder Ben Revere and the Phillies have avoided arbitration with a one-year, $1.95 million deal.

Revere had a terrible first month in Philadelphia after coming over in a trade from Minnesota, but then caught fire by hitting .347 in 65 games from May 1 until mid-July. Unfortunately that’s when his season ended thanks to a broken foot, leaving Revere with a .305 batting average, zero homers, 22 steals, and a .691 OPS in 88 games overall.

This was Revere’s first season of arbitration eligibility at age 25.

    Not much was made of it at the time, but the Phillies really went south when he went down. He did play a very sub-par centerfield last year, so one hopes he improves there.

    Good luck, Ben. Hope you have a healthy season and can show Phillies fans exactly how good you can be.
