Report: Ben Revere latest to be traded

Ben Revere joins baseball's best lineup in deadline deal.

Ben Revere joins baseball’s best lineup in deadline deal.

According to multiple reports, including’s Todd Zolecki, the Philadelphia Phillies have traded out-fielder Ben Revere to the Toronto Blue Jays. The compensation is not yet known.

This trade comes days after the Phillies unloaded Cole Hamels to the Texas Rangers and reliever Jonathan Papelbon to the Washington Nationals, as Philadelphia continues to attempt to re-tool their farm system.

Revere has been a bright spot in one of the least productive offenses in baseball, hitting .298 and swiping a team high 24 bases. He will likely take over as Toronto’s everyday left fielder and will possibly be the lead-off hitter for baseball’s best lineup.

Toronto has been the busiest team in baseball the last few days having already acquired pitchers David Price, Mark Lowe and LaTroy Hawkins, in addition to All Star Troy Tulowitzki.

Revere, 27, has been a staple in Philadelphia’s lineup since 2013 and hit over .300 every season with the team. The speedster also led the National League in hits last year with 184. Revere is earning $4.1 million in 2015 and is controllable through 2017 via arbitration.
