Phillies center fielder Ben Revere may not be much in the batter's box, but he's one hell of a defender. Monday in Boston, he showed us all again just how much ground he can cover when he made an incredible catch in center to rob David Ortiz of extra bases.

Of course, Revere also sacrificed his body in the process:

Not only did he stay in the game for the duration, but he told reporters (Todd Zolecki) after the game his status is day to day and that X-rays on his left elbow were negative.
