Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood Friday, April 24. OF Odubel Herrera was dropped to the second spot in the batting order.
Fantasy Tip: Revere ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is just flopping spots with Herrera Friday night, so it's not a big lineup shakeup. Revere has disappointed his owners with his start to 2015, going 10-for-53 (.189) with four stolen bases. Despite hitting .341 (61-for-179) in 2014 against lefties, Revere is a weak FantasyScore option tonight against Wood.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is not in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals Thursday, April 16.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to replace Revere ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. It is his first day off of the season, so there are no concerns over playing time. However, Revere has been demoted to the eighth hole in the batting order for the previous two games, which is a significant blow to his fake stock.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere remains available via trade. Revere is due to make $4.1 million in 2015 and is under team control through 2017.
Fantasy Tip: Revere ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has stolen 40-plus bases twice in the last three seasons, but has hit just two home runs in 2,026 career major league plate appearances. Revere is an excellent source of batting average and stolen bases and a move to a better offensive team would certainly allow him to score more runs.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere will be moved to left field but remain in the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Revere is a former Minnesota Twins prospect who appears to have found a new home in Philadelphia. That said, he carries little power and not much fantasy value except maybe in deeper NL leagues.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere (ankle) said he was bothered by pain in his right ankle through much of last season but feels much better now. "I've been running and cutting," he said. "No pain. I feel good. It slowed me up definitely. Some jumps after the ball I hesitated because of it. I knew it was there. Some bases I tried to steal, running down the line I'd slow down, hitting, trying to get out of the box, diving for a ball. It was tough. It was so frustrating."
