One week after trading one of their starting outfielders, the Minnesota Twins dealt another in their continued pursuit of starting pitching. The team announced Thursday that it has traded center fielder Ben Revere to the Philadelphia Phillies for 25-year-old right-hander Vance Worley and 23-year-old pitching prospect Trevor May. Worley, a third-round pick of the Phillies in 2008, made 23 starts in the majors last season. He was 6-9 with a 4.20 ERA and 107 strikeouts in 133 innings. In three seasons with Philadelphia, Worley is 18-13 with a 3.50 ERA. May pitched at Double-A Reading last season. He was 10-13 with a 4.87 ERA and 151 strikeouts in 149 23 innings. He was the Phillies' fourth-round pick in the 2008 draft. MLB.com ranked him as the Phillies' second-best pitching prospect. May also was named the Phillies' Minor League Pitcher of the Year. Revere, 24, was the Twins' first-round pick (28th overall) in the 2007 draft. He made his major league debut in 2010 and went on to play 241 games combined in 2011 and 2012. Revere had his best offensive season this year, batting .294 with a .333 on-base percentage and 40 stolen bases. He also became a fan favorite due to his highlight-reel catches in center and right field during his two seasons at Target Field. Now that the Twins have traded Span and Revere in an effort to bolster a sagging rotation, the question becomes who will be Minnesota's center fielder. Of the players currently on the major league roster, Darin Mastroianni appears to be the only option. But the Twins have plenty of outfield depth, and it's assumed that 23-year-old Aaron Hicks will be Minnesota's center fielder before long. Hicks has yet to play higher than Double-A, but he batted .286 with 13 homers and 32 stolen bases last year for New Britain. Follow Tyler Mason on Twitter.
