Ben Revere out 6-8 weeks following foot surgery

Ben Revere will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair his broken right foot and the Phillies announced that the center fielder is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.

Revere recovered from an awful April to hit .347 in 65 games since May and raise his overall batting average to .305, but now he’s in danger of missing the remainder of the season.

Acquired from the Twins for Vance Worley and Trevor May this offseason, Revere is a career .285 hitter with 96 steals in 342 games at age 25, but he’s yet to homer in 1,400 plate appearances and has a modest .654 OPS. His injury has the Phillies talking about getting another center fielder, but anyone they bring in would presumably be merely a stop gap.
