Revere signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Friday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

EDGE Analysis

Revere joins the Angels after being released by the Reds last Sunday. The veteran outfielder slashed .275/.308/.344 with 21 stolen bases in 308 plate appearances with the Angels in 2017, and would likely provide outfield depth if promoted from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Revere was released from Reds' minor-league camp Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Revered signed with the Reds this offseason with the hopes of cracking the Opening Day roster as a reserve outfielder. After going 3-for-24 at the plate this spring, he was reassigned to minor-league camp on Thursday. The speedy outfielder will now look to sign on with a club in need of an additional major-league outfielder.

Revere was reassigned to minor league camp Thursday, John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fay notes that Revere was one of the biggest surprises from Thursday's round of cuts, although it's worth mentioning that he had gone just .125/.160/.208 through 24 spring at-bats. "I think he'll go back and talk with his agent and see what his opportunities are," said manager Bryan Price. The indication as of now is that Revere may forgo heading to minor league camp and instead see if there are any other teams in need of a fourth outfielder.

Revere signed a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Revere put together a solid rebound season with the Angels last year, posting a .275/.308/.344 slash line in 308 plate appearances, but most importantly went 21 for 27 in stolen base attempts. Stolen bases are likely to be the only statistic of potential fantasy relevance for the 29-year-old, but the Reds outfield depth doesn't look to provide a clear path for at-bats.

Revere went 2-for-5 with a double and three RBI in Sunday's 7-5 loss to Houston.

EDGE Analysis

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.

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.

EDGE Analysis

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 (knee contusion) is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Rangers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

While he suffered a knee contusion Tuesday, he's not necessarily out of the lineup solely because of that injury, as Revere is technically the fourth outfielder. Cameron Maybin will start in center field and lead off. Revere could be available off the bench, and should be considered day-to-day.

Revere was diagnosed with a left knee contusion, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

Revere drew the start in left field in replacement 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 left fielder 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 a pair of runs scored in Friday's 9-7 loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old drew his second consecutive start atop the Angels' lineup while Cameron Maybin deals 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.
