The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired 24-year old lefty swinging CF Ben Revere from the Twins for 25-year old righty starting pitcher Vance Worley and 23-year old righty starting pitcher Trevor May. Revere played in 124 games for the Twins last year and he was 150 of 511 (.294 avg, .675 OPS) with 70 runs scored, 0 homers, 32 RBIs and 40 stolen bases. He has now played in 254 games in his first three years in the majors and he is 275 of 989 (.278 avg, .642 OPS) with 127 runs scored, 0 homers, 64 RBIs and 74 stolen bases. Revere will take over as the Phillies’ starting CF and leadoff hitter. Vance Worley pitched in 23 games (all starts) for the Phillies last year and he was 6-9 with a 4.20 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. Worley pitched in 53 games (46 starts) in his three years with the Phillies and he was 18-13 with a 3.50 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. Trevor May came into the 2012 season as the Phillies’ #1 prospect according to Baseball America. May pitched in 28 games (all starts) in AA-ball last year and he was 10-13 with a 4.87 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP. Revere didn’t come cheap to the Phillies, but he is going to really upgrade the team in 2013 and beyond, both offensively and defensively.
