Revere in 36 games has hit .268 with a .284 on-base percentage. He's walked three times in 142 plate appearances -- that 2.1 percent walk rate ties him for dead last in the majors with Jean Segura and Khris Davis of the Brewers.
Over his last 13 games, Revere has a .196 OBP in nearly 50 plate appearances, all out of the leadoff spot.
Which invites this question: Is he even an everyday player?
Right now, the answer appears to be no. And it's not just because of a bad 13-game stretch. It's because Revere is a below-average defender and has absolutely zero power. When he's not timing the ball and hitting singles, he doesn't do anything else well enough to make up for it.
Revere has no home runs in 1,542 career trips to the plate. No player since 1947 has finished a career with as many PAs as Revere and no homers.
The lack of homers is one thing. But Revere rarely hits a ball down the line or to the gaps with authority. Revere has just two extra-base hits this season and 14 in 478 plate appearances as a Phillie.
I got a kick out of the comments. Phillies fans hate Revere.
Nice to see other people realizing that speed and circus catches (because he took a horrific route to the ball) doesn't equal good defense.
Really, other than pinch runner, what role is there for him MLB?
He's not a good choice as a defensive replacement, because even if he makes the proper play in the field, he's not throwing anyone out at home or stopping anyone from taking an extra base.
