Revere is an option for CF. (MLB) -It appears we’re just waiting on a decision from Michael Young. A trade seems close according to Jim Salisbury at CSNPhilly.com, with the only hold up being Young’s no-trade clause, which comes from his 10-5 rights. If Young is traded, look for the Rangers to pick up $10 million or more of his $16 million contract for 2013. There has been speculation of the players the Phillies would be sending to the Rangers in return, with Michael Schwimer being a prime suspect. -Ben Revere has taken off in the last hour or so as a target for the Phillies. The Twins are reportedly dying for pitching, and the Phils have set their sights on the 24-year old center fielder, according to multiple reports. Revere obviously won’t help in the power department, as he’s never hit a homer in the majors. However, he’s good defensively and has quick wheels, making him a possible leadoff batter. That, and he’s super cheap. Revere is not yet arbitration eligible, so while he might cost Vance Worley, he’s under team control for quite a while. If the Phillies were to zone in on Revere and nab him from Minnesota, it might open things up for a move for a slugging corner outfielder.
