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.
