Revere signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Friday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports. Revere joins the Angels after being released by the Reds last Sunday. The veteran outfielder slashed .275/.308/.344 with 21 stolen bases in 308 plate appearances with the Angels in 2017, and would likely provide outfield depth if promoted from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Revere was released from Reds minor-league camp Sunday. Revere signed with the Reds this offseason with the hopes of cracking the Opening Day roster as a reserve outfielder. After going 3-for-24 at the plate this spring, he was reassigned to minor-league camp Thursday. The speedy outfielder will now look to sign with a club in need of an additional major-league outfielder.
Revere was reassigned to minor-league camp Thursday, John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Fay notes that Revere was one of the biggest surprises from Thursday's round of cuts, although it's worth mentioning that he had gone just .125/.160/.208 through 24 spring at-bats. "I think he'll go back and talk with his agent and see what his opportunities are," said manager Bryan Price. The indication as of now is that Revere may forgo heading to minor league camp and instead see if there are any other teams in need of a fourth outfielder.
Revere signed a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports. Revere put together a solid rebound season with the Angels last year, posting a .275/.308/.344 slash line in 308 plate appearances, but most importantly went 21-for-27 in stolen base attempts. Stolen bases are likely to be the only statistic of potential fantasy relevance for the 29-year-old, but the Reds outfield depth doesn't look to provide a clear path for at-bats.
Revere went 2-for-5 with a double and three RBI in Sunday's 7-5 loss to Houston. Revere's bases-clearing double in the fifth inning gave him his first multi-RBI performance of the year. The leadoff man's value is tied primarily to speed rather than power, as he's topped 20 stolen bases in six of the past seven seasons. It was Revere's first action since suffering a knee contusion Tuesday, so he should be good to serve his usual fourth outfielder role moving forward.
