Revere went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run, a walk and two runs in scored in Tuesday's 7-4 triumph over the Mets.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The speedy leadoff man doesn't hit for extra bases often, as this performance raised his season totals in home runs and doubles to one and two, respectively. What Revere does bring is a high likelihood of crossing the plate, and he has scored six runs in the last six games after totaling just two in his first 11 appearances of the season. He'll only continue to gain in value if the Nationals have more offensive outbursts like this five-homer effort.

Revere went 3-for-5 with two runs scored, two RBI and his first two stolen bases of the season in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It looks like he's finally shaken off the rust from his oblique injury, and Revere has now banged out seven hits over his last three games to add 67 points to his batting average. His overall slash line is still weak, but if he stays hot it'll get healthy in a hurry.

Revere is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Michael Taylor will take over in center field and atop the batting order with a lefty in Justin Nicolino due up for Miami. Revere has struggled mightily since his return from the DL earlier this month, going 7-for-55 (.127 average), and he's been caught stealing on both attempts. While there's been nothing to suggest his regular role is in jeopardy, the Nats figure to continue shielding him from lefties.

Revere went 2-for-5 in Thursday's win over the Mets with a triple, a run scored and two RBI.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It's just his second multi-hit game and third extra-base hit since coming off the DL at the beginning of the month, and Revere's anemic .123/.177/.211 slash line if not what the Nationals were expecting when they acquired him this offseason. Better days should be ahead once he finds his rhythm at the plate, though, and especially if you need steals Revere could be a good buy-low target.

Revere is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins, Byron Kerr of MASN reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Nats' everyday center fielder will sit Game 1, but there's been no report of an injury, so he'll likely be back on the field for the nightcap. Michael Taylor will get the nod in center for Game 1, and he'll serve as the leadoff man.

Revere went 2-for-5 in Saturday's loss to the Cubs with a double, a triple and two runs scored.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After taking an ohfer Friday in his first game off the DL, Revere quickly found his stroke again. He should be a good source of runs, steals and batting average going forward hitting at the top of the Nats' potent batting order.

Revere (oblique) is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Cubs, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Revere has been sidelined since injuring his oblique Opening Day, but he will return to the lineup Friday after completing a rehab assignment and proving to the Nationals he is ready to go. Revere will start in center field and hit leadoff Friday and figures to fill both roles regularly moving forward. That will likely provide Bryce Harper and the team's other sluggers more opportunities to hit with runners on base, as Revere posted a .342 OBP last year, and the man he is replacing -- Michael Taylor -- posted just a .222 mark in his absence.

Revere (oblique) is expected to go through a full workout before being activated from the disabled list which could occur Friday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Revere rejoined the Nationals Thursday, but he was kept out of the starting lineup due to the cold weather in Chicago and apparently due to not having gone through a full workout. If he can get through the workout Friday, there's a good chance that he'll slot back into center field for the second game of the series.

Revere (oblique) is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs, according to MLB.com's William Ladson.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Revere is back with the Nationals after recovering from a strained oblique, but he is not ready to start just yet, and remains on the disabled list for the time being. It should not be long before he is activated, however, and he figures to resume his regular role in center field when that occurs.

Revere (oblique) will rejoin the Nationals on Thursday in Chicago but the team will need to reevaluate him before officially activating him off the disabled list, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The expectation for the last week has been for Revere to return for Washington's series against the Cubs, and things appear to be trending in that direction. Revere will be with the team when they head down to Wrigley for the start of a four-game set, but he'll need to gain final clearance from the medical staff before he is activated from the DL. Provided everything checks out Thursday, Revere will likely be able to return to the lineup in the coming days.
