Why Boston Should Sign Revere

Revere has struggled throughout his career in the MLB to stay consistent and healthy. Revere will never be a player known for his power. With that being said, Revere will put the ball in play, get on base, and use his speed to get into pitchers’ minds by threatening to steal bases. Revere doesn’t have the strongest of arms, but his speed gives him the range and capability to make noticeably good catches.

Revere is seen as being goofy, often smiling and having fun while he’s on the field. He’s funny and likable during interviews with the press. During interviews, he often references plays or personalities of teammates in a very honest and positive manner, giving fans an inside view.

Revere is a smaller player, he’s faced having a chip on his shoulders. He’s bounced around from teams.

Revy is an older player, but he’s likely to sign a low-cost deal. He could fit in well as a backup player for the Red Sox. He’s capable of being a utility outfielder. With his speed, ability to steal bases, and defensive abilities he would mesh into the system of the Red Sox. As a result of his recent injuries and struggles, there’s unlikely to be heavy competition for Revere, making him a low-cost risk.
