Yeah, yeah, yeah everyone knows Ben Revere hasn’t exactly been knockin’ the cover off the ball this year.
He’s got a slash line of .237/.286/.263, an OPS of .548 and an OPS+ of 50 (cool stats). Also, maybe you know he’s got no (0) dingers ever in his MLB career. He’s gone 1,193 consecutive plate appearances without hitting a baseball over a wall in fair territory. For the love of god the guy even runs a million miles an hour and hasn’t even gotten an inside-the-parker (to be fair, though, even the fastest person in the universe can’t go from home to home without hitting the ball past the infield dirt).
But hey, let’s not go too hard him! He may not have hit a home run before, but he has accomplished other physical feats! Plenty of ‘em!
Ben Revere may literally be the only non-pitcher professional baseball player who can’t hit a baseball more than 150 feet in the air, but there are other things he can do besides that!
I could’ve gone on and on and made a list of almost 26 (WOW) things he can do, but I decided to stop at 25 because most of you people have jobs you need to attend to and can’t be distracted for hours:
