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.

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.
