    Phillies Acquire Revere for Vance Worley and Trevor May

    http://zozone.mlblogs.com/2012/12/06...cquire-revere/

    Sources: Phillies Acquire Revere

    The Phillies will not leave the Winter Meetings empty handed.

    Multiple sources confirmed to MLB.com this morning the Phillies have acquired outfielder Ben Revere in a trade with the Minnesota Twins. It is unclear who the Phillies have sent to the Twins as part of the trade, but the Twins have been looking for pitching.

    Revere hit .294 with 13 doubles, six triples, 32 RBIs, 40 stolen bases and 70 runs scored in 511 at-bats last season. He also carried a .333 on-base percentage and a .342 slugging percentage.

    “If they get him, based on what’s available, they did all right,” one high-ranking American League executive said this morning. “He’s a solid average player. That’s how I look at him. He’s above average defensively. He can run. My biggest question, considering his size (5-foot-9, 170 pounds), is if he can play 145, 150 games. But he puts the ball in play better than I thought he would.”

    An official announcement could come later today.

    I don't have a dog in the fight here, but doesn't Worley AND Trevor May for Revere seem steep?
    Here's to feeling good all the time.

    Worley, May and Meyer is a pretty awesome return for a couple of 3 win OFers

    Coming soon to a TKRO stadium near you

    Phillies got a young center-fielder who will be under control for a long while, but gave up a young arm in an aging rotation. Kinda torn.


    We remember...

    Wow, nice deal for the Twins. The Bourn market is dwindling now.

    Phillies gave up way too much. Does this take them out of the Bourn sweepstakes now too? Revere has a very similar skillset

    Huge overpayment for a guy like Revere. Career .278/.319/.323 with excellent glove seems like a 4th OF to me.
