The Phillies are selling, that is no secret. When you look at Ben Revere’s numbers, they are not that far from Jackson’s. But having another bat in the lineup similar to Jackson could only help. When he hits 2nd in the lineup, his OPS for his career is .719. That would be the fourth highest on the Mariners roster right now.
Revere’s OBP (on-base percentage) is a few points higher than Jackson’s. He has played in 60 games for the Phillies this year and leads the National League with 5 triples. He would be a huge asset in the outfield as well with his elite speed. He notched 49 steals last season, and has stolen at least 34 bases in three seasons.
