Ben Revere – Philadelphia Phillies

By this point, we’re well-informed that the Cubs have interest in at least one Phillies player in left-hander Cole Hamels.

But the Phillies have another piece that could interest Chicago in outfielder Ben Revere, who tied with Denard Span last year for the most hits in the NL with 184.

The former first-round pick has a couple years left in terms of team control and could add a much-needed speed element to the Chicago Cubs outfield, given his league-leading six triples and 21 steals this season.

Philadelphia is in desperate need of a top-to-bottom rebuild. Everyone knows how much the club will get in return for Hamels, but in terms of offensive pieces, one of their most attractive options has to be considered Revere.
