Owners won't likely expect Revere to maintain an average much over .300 going forward, and his recent exploits have been fueled by an unsustainably high BABIP. However, he has struck out only four times in 41 at-bats this month, which is more typical for Revere than the 16 percent strikeout-per-at bat rate he put up last month.
Revere is still batting just .260 for the season, as his numbers are weighed down by his poor April. Forget the year-to-date stats and look for Revere to help with batting average, steals and runs in most mixed Rotisserie leagues over the remainder of the season.
Revere doubled once and singled twice. Revere has been on fire in May, as he is 16 for 41 (.390) with a .908 OPS. However, his cold April has his overall line at just .260/.302/.398.
"Ben has had a little bit of a slow start, but he has done some things better lately even though he had a rough night (Monday in Miami)," Amaro told The Philadelphia Inquirer. "I think Ben is a better player than we’ve seen so far. Delmon is a better player, too."
Although, Amaro had an interesting answer when asked "how long can you stick" with Revere and Young.
“I don’t know, but at some point it does have to kick in," he said. "We’ll see how things continue to play out."
Revere tied a season-high with three hits, including his second double, in four at-bats. He added one run and his eighth stolen base. Revere is batting .435 (10 for 23) in his last 10 games (seven starts).
Despite batting .357 with a .438 on-base percentage in his last 13 games,
Revere has been limited to six starts against left-handed pitchers this season, but only two of the four games he has sat out have been against lefties.
Revere told the Philadelphia Inquirer Saturday that he has been getting time off to work on his swing. Revere, who has just two extra-base hits in 118 at-bats, said he is trying to work on driving the ball.
"We've kind of been talking and going back to my old films from the minor leagues with the Twins and trying to find that power stroke," Revere said. "I know back then I was a 10-triple guy, it was gap-to-gap with everything, and they want me to get back to that and I do too. That’s the stuff I’m working on."
