Phillies | Slumping Ben Revere out of lineup

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere did not start Thursday, April 25, against the Pittsburgh Pirates for the first time this season. OF Ezequiel Carrera made the start in his absence and was hitless in four at-bats with a pair of strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Revere is batting just .207 on the season with 14 strikeouts in 87 at-bats. However, expect the Phillies to keep pushing him back out there, letting him try to hit his way out of the slump. His fantasy appeal is limited to NL-only formats right now, and he still has some worth in mixed rotisserie formats for his speed potential, although he is crushing owners in batting average.
