Update: Tom McCarthy said on the Phillies’ broadcast on Sunday afternoon that Revere is dealing with a hamstring injury, so there’s that. Now we just need to find out why the Phillies were so secretive about it.
Ben Revere is not in the starting lineup for a third consecutive game. He last started on Wednesday against the Milwaukee Brewers. Odubel Herrera starts again in center field while Darin Ruf mans left field and Jeff Francoeur will take care of right field.
Among Phillies with at least 100 plate appearances, Revere’s adjusted OPS of 97 ranks third on the team behind Maikel Franco and Cesar Hernandez. Along with ranking among the Phillies’ most productive hitters, Revere is one of few threats on the bases, having stolen 19 bases in 24 attempts. The 19 steals exceeds that of the Phillies’ number two and three base stealers combined.
