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."

Philadelphia Phillies OF Grady Sizemore will play five days a week in center and left field, according to manager Ryne Sandberg.
Fantasy Tip: Sizemore's guaranteed playing time makes him worth considering for outfield depth in deep mixed leagues. It also hurts Ben Revere and most likely Domonic Brown.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Grady Sizemore is playing center field and leading off Friday, July 11.
Fantasy Tip: Ben Revere is dealing with an ankle injury, which explains the move. Sizemore could see semi-regular playing time, but he's unlikely to suddenly become an everyday player unless a trade or serious injury opens up a spot in the outfield.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere (ankle) entered the game as a pinch-runner Thursday, July 10. Revere was not in the team's starting lineup Thursday, because his right ankle was sore.
Fantasy Tip: Clearly, the Phillies are being cautious with Revere, and the injury isn't too serious. The All-Star break should provide additional opportunity for rest. Revere is an excellent source of runs, stolen bases and batting average.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere (ankle) is dealing with a sore right ankle and is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 10. It's the same ankle that he had problems with last year, and the two screws in his ankle is what is causing the soreness.
Fantasy Tip: Take Revere out of your daily lineups. It's a bit worrisome that his surgically repaired ankle is giving him fits again. Revere could take a few days off as the All-Star break approaches.
