ODUBEL HERRERA RUMORS

Meet Odubel Herrera: The Phillies Opening Day Center Fielder

Last weekend, Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg indicated the team is moving Ben Revere from center field to left field to make room for Odubel Herrera — a speedy slap hitter they plucked from the Rangers in the rule 5 draft last winter.
