Watch a chicken play baseball

Really, that’s all this is. A chicken playing baseball. Found by the folks over at MLB.com’s CUT 4. It’s quite a thing.

The best part: he hits better than B.J. Upton. And, because he was conditioned to play the game by being rewarded with chicken feed, he costs far less than B.J. Upton does too.

The Reds have signed outfielder Ben Revere to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports. Revere is expected to take home a salary between $1 million and $1.5 million if he makes the major league roster, Heyman adds.

Revere, 29, spent last season with the Angels. He batted a light .275/.308/.344 in 308 plate appearances. Revere does have some speed as he stole 21 bases last year.

Revere will try to earn a spot on the roster as a backup outfielder. The Reds’ starting spots are spoken for with Adam Duvall, Billy Hamilton, and Scott Schebler.
