Revere is not in the lineup Thursday for the second day in a row, according to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

EDGE Analysis

Revere saw nine straight starts earlier in August, but he did not do much with the opportunity, and has essentially moved back into a reserve role. Expect that to continue when Ryan Zimmerman (wrist) returns in the near future and pushes Daniel Murphy back to second base and Trea Turner back into center field.

Revere is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies, the Washington Post's Chelsea Janes reports.

EDGE Analysis

He had been playing almost every day in center, due to the combination of Bryce Harper (neck) missing time and Ryan Zimmerman's absence forcing Daniel Murphy to first base and Trea Turner to the keystone. However, now that Harper is back and Zimmerman is nearing a return, Revere should see his playing time shrink somewhat down the stretch. Brian Goodwin will start in center field and hit seventh Wednesday.

Revere went 2-for-4 with a pair of triples, an RBI and two runs in Saturday's 7-6 victory over the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

The center fielder plated fellow speedster Trea Turner with his fifth-inning triple, his first RBI of the month. Revere has been heating up at the plate, with multi-hit efforts in three of the last four games he's participated in. Although he's started to lose some playing time, he's currently enjoying his best month of the season by far, slashing .286/.333/.464 over his first 28 August at-bats.

Revere is out of the lineup Friday against the Giants, MASN's Dan Kolko reports.

EDGE Analysis

It would not be surprising if Revere is transitioned into a fourth outfielder role, with Trea Turner locked into the leadoff spot and forced to man center field, given the Nationals' crowded infield. Revere would see more playing time than the typical fourth outfielder, but his playing time certainly appears to be heading in the wrong direction.

Revere is out of the lineup Monday against the Diamondbacks, Chase Hughes of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Nationals will start Trea Turner in center field and give Revere the night off after starting five of their last six games. Revere has struggled at the plate in that time, as he's gone just 3-for-20.

Revere is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Padres, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Revere will get the day off after posting the RBI double that proved to be the difference-maker Saturday. Furthermore, with lefty Christian Friedrich on the mound for the opposing Padres, manager Dusty Baker will rest Revere and his left-handed bat in favor of right-hander Michael Taylor in center field.

Revere went 1-for-3 with an RBI double, walk and run scored in Saturday's 3-2 victory over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The speedy leadoff man plated Danny Espinosa with a fifth-inning double, only his second two-bagger of July. Revere does have the three triples during the month however, but has only slashed .207/.220/.379 over 58 at-bats. He's also relatively struggled on the basepaths, notching only 10 steals in 14 attempts.

Revere is out of the lineup Thursday against the Dodgers, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Revere has started four straight games in center field, including the last time the Nationals faced a lefty, but he'll take a seat Thursday afternoon with southpaw Julio Urias on the hill for the opposing Dodgers. Trea Turner, who will get the start at second base, will take Revere's place atop the batting order.

Revere's lone hit in four at-bats Wednesday against the Dodgers was a solo homer, his second of the season.

EDGE Analysis

He and Jayson Werth went back-to-back against LA starter Bud Norris in the fifth inning. Revere's numbers are still suffering, as he's still having trouble getting on base despite making contact about as well as he ever has. A .288 career hitter, he's been hovering around .220 this year for a while now, and he hasn't stolen a base since June 27. All in all, it's been a lost season, but it's still not too late for Revere to heat up and salvage it.

Revere is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The speedy center fielder will be replaced in the order by Michael Taylor with the Nationals going against southpaw Francisco Liriano. Revere has actually fared reasonably well against lefties this season with a .265 average and a .728 OPS, but manager Dusty Baker wanted to get Taylor's right-handed bat into the lineup Friday.
