Revere said he is able to do his typical offseason workout routine now that he no longer has screws in his right ankle, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "I can do everything. I can do power lifting. I couldn't even squat last year. I'm squatting 400 pounds now. Last year, my hamstring [shut] down, my quads were weak. Now, I'm getting all my strength back."

Revere played through pain for half of last season as the screws that were in his ankle from a 2013 surgery were pressing on his nerves. They were removed early in the offseason. The 26-year-old is set to open next season as the Phillies' starting center fielder.

Revere (ankle) agreed to a one-year, $4.1 million contract with the Phillies on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports.

Revere's walk rate fell to an abysmal 2.1% last season, but he was able to maintain a batting average above .300 thanks to his exceptional contact skills (92.4% contact rate last season) and elite speed. The 26-year-old finished third in the NL in stolen bases with 49 and his playing time should be fairly secure heading into 2015, assuming his ankle is close to 100 percent. He said in December that he had experienced no pain during offseason workouts.

Revere (ankle) underwent surgery and will be in a walking boot for two weeks, MLB.com's Todd Zolecki reports.

Revere is expected to be fully healthy by spring training, so this surgery shouldn't worry even with his dependence on his ankle as a speed-based player. Revere had an average season by his standards, hitting .306 with no plate discipline or power to speak of. Given the Phillies' lack of minor league depth, they'll be hard pressed to find a stronger bat to replace Revere in the near future.

Revere will undergo surgery in October to remove two screws from his right ankle, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Revere has the screws in his ankle from a broken foot he suffered last season. He played through some pain this year which will be alleviated when the screws are removed. Revere hit .306/.325/.361 with two home runs and 49 stolen bases in 601 at-bats this season.

Manager Ryne Sandberg wants to see Revere increase the amount of doubles he hits, the Phillies' official site reports. "I actually think that he has the ability to hit 30 to 35 to 40 doubles with the way that he makes contact," Sandberg said.

Revere has hit 13 doubles this season which has tied his career-high. Sandberg said Revere has shown gap power in batting practice, but his in-game approach is to hit the ball on the ground or up the middle and use his speed. The Phillies would like to see a little more offense from their center field position which puts Revere's starting job in jeopardy next season if the team adds a more potent bat that can play center.

Revere went 3-for-5 with an RBI and his 47th steal Thursday against the Padres.

One of the game's most underrated speedsters entering the year, Revere has done a more-than-passable impression of Juan Pierre in his prime.

Revere is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Padres, CSN Philadelphia's Jim Salisbury reports.

It will be a rare night off for the Phillies' starting center fielder, as Tony Gwynn, Jr. will get the start in his hometown -- the first action he'll see in San Diego since 2012.
