Phillies acquire Ben Revere

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

Philadelphia gets their center fielder. Who saw that one coming?

The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired center fielder Ben Revere from the Minnesota Twins, reports Todd Zolecki of MLB.com:

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.

An official announcement could come later today.

The Twins will receive right-hander Vance Worley and right-handed pitching prospect in return for Revere, reports Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly:

The move comes as somewhat of a surprise from the Twins' end, as the club has now traded away both of their center fielders in the last two weeks. The club sent Denard Span to the Washington Nationals in exchange for pitching prospect Alex Meyer last Wednesday.

The Phillies, on the other hand, can now breath a huge sigh of relief having acquired their center fielder after failed attempts to sign B.J. Upton and Angel Pagan.

Revere, 24, split time at each outfield position in his three seasons with the Twins, and is highly regarded for his range and highlight-reel catches. A prototypical slap hitter, Revere is a career .278/.318/.323 hitter with no home runs, but he does have 70 stolen bases in the past two seasons.
