Arbitration: Phillies and Ben Revere avoid a hearing

The Philadelphia Phillies have avoided arbitration with outfielder Ben Revere.

Revere, who will be headed into his age-25 season, is a stand-out defender, but suffered a fractured foot in July when he fouled a pitch off of himself. The injury caused him to miss the remainder of the season and he finished his first season with Philadelphia playing only 88 games.

In 2012 with the Minnesota Twins, he played in 124 games, hitting .294/.333/.342 and amassing 40 stolen bases while manning the outfield. He earned $515,000 in 2013 and his new, 1-year deal is worth $1.95 million and contains incentive bonuses.
