Ben Revere

  1. Vance Worley clears waivers, stays with Twins

    Mar 21, 2014, 3:45 PM EDT

    Vance Worley

    Vance Worley was the main piece the Twins received in the Ben Revere trade last offseason and then started on Opening Day … and now he’s headed to Triple-A after being placed on waivers and going unclaimed by the other 29 teams. In between he had a miserable season in which he went 1-5 with…

  2. Inside Masahiro Tanaka’s debut

    Mar 1, 2014, 4:04 PM EDT

    Masahiro Tanaka

    TAMPA — The original plan was to go sit in the crowd and drink beer at the Astros-Tigers game, but when it was announced that Masahiro Tanaka was making his spring training debut in Tampa today, plans changed. I got in the car at 6:30 this morning and headed to Steinbrenner Field early to take…

  3. Masahiro Tanaka goes two scoreless, strikes out three in his U.S. debut

    Mar 1, 2014, 2:52 PM EDT

    Masahiro Tanaka

    TAMPA — Masahiro Tanaka made his U.S. debut today, facing the Phillies at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. Tanaka pitched third in the game, with CC Sabathia and Hiroki Kuroda taking the first four innings. Tanaka was not dominant, but he was effective. In the fifth he gave up a leadoff single to Darin Ruf then retired…

  4. Phillies could get creative to find room for Darin Ruf on the roster

    Feb 8, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    By weighted on-base average (wOBA), Darin Ruf (.354) out-hit every Phillie except Chase Utley (.356). PECOTA, the projection system found at Baseball Prospectus, projects Ruf to be more valuable than All-Star Domonic Brown in 2014. And yet, most are expecting Ruf to start the season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. It makes logical sense. The Phillies’…

  5. Phillies, Ben Revere avoid arbitration

    Jan 24, 2014, 5:10 PM EDT

    Ben Revere, Tim Federowicz

    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…

  6. 40 players exchange figures with their clubs following today’s deadline

    Jan 17, 2014, 7:30 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Atlanta Braves

    There was a flurry of arbitration-related news today as players and teams scurried to reach agreements prior to the noon central deadline earlier. 39 players did not reach an agreement with their respective teams, and as such, they have exchanged salary figures with their clubs. Of note, Braves closer Craig Kimbrel filed for $9 million,…

  7. Ben Revere with a regrettable “no homo” tweet which probably violates MLB’s social media policy

    Sep 6, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Ben Revere, Tim Federowicz

    Here’s Ben Revere talking to a friend of his yesterday: “@iknowjado: I miss my bro @BenRevere9” miss you too no homo — Ben Revere (@BenRevere9) September 5, 2013   In case you’re unaware, the “no homo” thing is a longstanding phrase used by some to distance themselves from homosexuality. The presumption being that anyone who dare…

  8. Adam LaRoche can’t take BP because he’s losing too much weight

    Sep 5, 2013, 1:40 PM EDT

    Adam LaRoche

    We just learned that Ben Revere is bootylicious. Seems that Adam LaRoche is anti-bootylicious. Like, he literally can’t keep weight on and now that’s keeping him from taking batting practice: Part of the issue, however, has been the weight loss caused by the medicine he takes to combat ADD (attention deficit disorder). LaRoche is so desperate…

  9. Tweet of the Day: Ben Revere is bootylicious

  10. Plays of the Day: Roger Bernadina makes a pair of nifty grabs in Phillies victory

    Aug 25, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    Roger Bernadina

    Roger Bernadina was very supportive of his pitching staff today, making a pair of impressive catches to help keep the Diamondback offense at bay. The athleticism is made all the more impressive considering that this afternoon’s game started just 11 hours after last night’s knock-down, drag-out, 18-inning affair ended. The first great grab occurred In…

  11. Keeping Cliff Lee is the wrong choice for Phillies

    Jul 31, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Trends don’t get much more clear than this: 2008: Won World Series 2009: Lost World Series 2010: Lost NLCS 2011: Lost NLDS 2012: Missed playoffs Now, that’s not entirely fair: the Phillies had their best records in that span in 2011 and 2010. But Charlie Manuel’s team has dropped off severely since then. In 2012,…

  12. Josh Hamilton back in lineup after missing three games with ankle stiffness

    According to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, Josh Hamilton is back in the starting lineup for tonight’s game against the Athletics after missing the past three games with right ankle stiffness. Hamilton told the Los Angeles Times earlier this week that he began feeling symptoms when he woke up on Monday. He was diagnosed with inflammation…

  13. Ben Revere out 6-8 weeks following foot surgery

    Jul 15, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Ben Revere, Tim Federowicz

    Ben Revere will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair his broken right foot and the Phillies announced that the center fielder is expected to miss 6-8 weeks. Revere recovered from an awful April to hit .347 in 65 games since May and raise his overall batting average to .305, but now he’s in danger of missing…

  14. As Phillies reach .500, GM Ruben Amaro looking to address center field and bullpen

    Jul 14, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT

    Ruben Amaro, Charlie Manuel

    Though the Phillies, at long last, reached .500 for the first time since June 7, one would think most signs point to the team being sellers at the deadline. Yesterday, they lost center fielder Ben Revere to a broken foot and he will be sidelined for six to eight weeks. They have a few soon-to-be…

  15. Ben Revere suffers broken right foot

    Jul 13, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Ben Revere, Tim Federowicz

    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…

    R.A. Dickey

    Blue Jays 3, Rays 0: R.A. Dickey throws a Maddux (i.e. a shutout in under 100 pitches), with his knuckler back up to the velocity he featured so often during his Cy Young season. Game was over in two hours, ten minutes. Athletics 5, Reds 0: A.J. Griffin needed 108 pitches for his two-hit shutout…

  17. Munenori Kawasaki hits first career home run

    Jun 21, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays' Kawasaki celebrates his RBI single against Baltimore Orioles during their MLB game in Toronto

    Blue Jays shortstop Munenori Kawasaki hit his first career home run in the seventh inning of tonight’s game against the Orioles. It was a two-run shot to right field off of Tommy Hunter that tied the game at six apiece. After rounding the bases and getting a round of high-fives in the dugout, his teammates…

  18. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 14, 2013, 6:45 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 3, Yankees 2: Looking at the Yankees side of the box score and noting Robinson Cano‘s contributions compared to everyone else’s and this comes to mind. Mark Teixeira, Travis Hafner, Kevin Youkilis and Vernon Wells combined to go 0 for 28 with 12 strikeouts in this marathon game. And while, yes, hats off to…

  19. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 5, 2013, 7:03 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies

    Phillies 7, Marlins 3: John Mayberry had a walkoff grand slam. Probably good that the Phillies won this one. After a brutally bad call by Bob Davidson in the bottom of the eighth on a Ben Revere takeout slide, the crowd didn’t stop letting the umps hear it. Apparently none of the tens of thousands…

  20. Brewers win on horrendous call by umpire Mike Estabrook

    Jun 1, 2013, 7:17 PM EDT

    Brewers @ Phillies June 1 2013

    The Brewers defeated the Phillies today 4-3, thanks in large part to a horrendous call by second base umpire Mike Estabrook in the bottom of the ninth inning. Down 4-2 initially, Freddy Galvis homered to lead off the ninth against Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez. Pinch-hitter Jimmy Rollins, who was not in the lineup due to…

  21. Twins demote Opening Day starter Vance Worley to Triple-A

    May 22, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Vance Worley

    It’s not often that you see an Opening Day starter sent to the minors, let alone demoted less than two months into the season, but that’s exactly what the Twins just did with Vance Worley. Worley got knocked around for eight runs in 3.2 innings against the Braves today, falling to 1-5 with a 7.21…

    Q: What did you think of Hideki Matsui’s postseason performance? Would you like to have a player like Matsui on your team? I love the oldies. Q: Went to watch the M’s at Yankees stadium last night and tonight. National Anthem pre-recorded both nights, is this a thing? I wish it were more of one. How…

  23. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 6, 2013, 6:58 AM EDT

    Allen Craig

    Cardinals 10, Brewers 1: The four-game sweep of the Brewers. Four RBI for Allen Craig. That’s six straight wins for the Cards, who are in their customary first place position in rather quiet fashion. The six first place teams right now: Boston, Detroit, Texas, Atlanta, St. Louis, San Francisco. Not many surprises there. I guess…

  24. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 16, 2013, 6:03 AM EDT

    Dustin Pedroia, Joel Peralta, Jose Lobaton

    Red Sox 3, Rays 2: Mike Napoli‘s RBI double in the ninth sent everyone home happy. The happiness would last less than an hour after game time, sadly. The Red Sox are now in Cleveland, which all things considered is probably a good thing. Padres 6, Dodgers 3: No one threw at anyone, so that’s…

  25. Video: Ben Revere’s incredible diving catch

    Apr 15, 2013, 8:23 PM EDT

    Ben Revere catch

    And that’s no hyperbole. In the second inning tonight at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Phillies center fielder Ben Revere went in full Superman-mode to rob Reds’ third baseman Todd Frazier of extra bases. Just the icing on the cake, he quickly got back on his feet and made a throw to double off…
