Phillies acquired OF Ben Revere from the Twins for RHPs Vance Worley and Trevor May.

Revere will become the Phillies' starting center fielder, and should thrive defensively in Citizens Bank Park. He'll also add a nice element of speed to the Philadelphia batting order. But it's easy to wonder if the club gave up too much for a guy who hasn't homered in 1,064 career plate appearances and who may never get on base at better than a .350 clip. Speed tends to be overrated in baseball.
