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.
Revere (knee) is starting in left field and batting leadoff during Sunday's game against the Astros, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Revere suffered a knee contusion during Tuesday's game after fouling a ball of his knee. After four days off to recover, the speedy left fielder will be inserted into the starting lineup Sunday in replacement of Cameron Maybin. Revere was hitting .306 in August prior to his knee injury.
Revere was diagnosed with a left knee contusion, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports. Revere fouled a ball off his knee Tuesday and indeed his departure later in the game was a direct result. It sounds like the Angels are confident Revere escaped with just a bruise, but it's possible they will give him a day or two off his feet to be safe. Revere has stolen 11 bases already since the All-Star break, exceeding his total from the first half.
Revere was removed from Tuesday's game against the Rangers in the sixth inning, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports. Revere drew the start in left field in place of Cameron Maybin, but was removed from the game in the sixth inning after going 1-for-3 with a stolen base in his first three plate appearances. The speedy outfielder fouled a ball off his knee earlier in the game, so that may have been the reason for his early departure.
Revere led off and went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored in Friday's 9-7 loss to the Orioles. The 29-year-old drew his second consecutive start atop the Angels' lineup while Cameron Maybin has dealt with knee stiffness. It is unclear how long Maybin will be sidelined, but the injury is in the same knee that cost him three weeks of action last month. Revere should continue to start in his place, providing runs and stolen bases in the interim.
