IN THE SPAN of 120 minutes on Thursday afternoon, two major league outfielders found new homes on two different coasts. Josh Hamilton, the prize of the free-agent market and apple of many a Phillies fan's eye, agreed to a 5-year, $125 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels. Hamilton got a Ryan Howard-sized contract to join a formidable lineup that includes Albert Pujols and Mike Trout. Ben Revere, a player many Phillies fans hadn't heard of 10 days ago, arrived at the home clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park for the first time less than 2 hours after the Hamilton news broke.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Whether it's Cliff Lee or Jimmy Rollins, Roy Halladay or Chase Utley, the first name they rattle off when they're asked about the new players in camp is the same. Ben Revere. He might have the shortest resumé of the players Ruben Amaro Jr. added this winter, but Revere also could have the biggest impact. The aforementioned players all know Revere because of his defense. "If a ball had any hang time, you better watch out," said fellow newcomer Delmon Young, "because you're going to see Flying Revere.

WASHINGTON - Ben Revere arrived at Nationals Park on Saturday morning only to learn he was not in the Phillies' lineup for the third consecutive day. Inserted for the final three innings that afternoon and back in the lineup Sunday, the centerfielder-turned-leftfielder began to show signs he might be breaking out of his slump. "No question about it," manager Ryne Sandberg said Sunday after a 4-1 loss to the Nationals. "A little bit more aggressive at home plate to give himself a chance.

NASHVILLE - The Phillies decided Thursday they would rather pay a high price in terms of players than dollars for their new centerfielder. That's why righthander Vance Worley and prospect pitcher Trevor May now work for Minnesota and the lefthanded-hitting Ben Revere is coming to Philadelphia from the Twins to play center field. Instead of paying high-price free agents such as Michael Bourn and B.J. Upton, the Phillies opted for the less accomplished and far less expensive Revere, who is not even eligible for salary arbitration until after the 2013 season.

IF BEN REVERE was hitting .300 and doing the types of things the Phillies envisioned when they acquired him from the Twins, he might have started in centerfield last night against the Marlins. But the diminutive speedster was hitting .204 with a .471 OPS that ranked ahead of only Adam LaRoche among qualified batters in the National League. On top of that, he had jammed a finger sliding into second base during the third inning of the Phillies' 6-0 loss to the Indians on Wednesday.

One of the more remarkable aspects of Ben Revere's rise to the top of the National League's batting leaders - he tied Colorado's Justin Morneau at .314 on Sunday - was how he mounted hits without any walks. Then he watched five Justin Masterson pitches to draw a walk in the first inning of a 7-1 win over St. Louis, and another productive day commenced. Revere, who later scored on a Chase Utley single, walked for the first time in 171 plate appearances, the longest streak for a Phillies player since Mariano Duncan went 304 plate appearances from 1994-95 without a walk.

The Phillies already cashed in by far their biggest trade chip in Cole Hamels, but they could still make a lesser move or two before the trade deadline at 4 p.m. Friday. Ben Revere is the most likely candidate to find a new home on the final day for non-waiver trades. The 27-year-old outfielder entered Thursday night's series opener against the Atlanta Braves hitting a team-best .298, and a contending club might find him valuable as a complementary piece for the stretch run. Speaking before Thursday's game at Citizens Bank Park, Revere said he hadn't heard any news of a trade involving him. He has heard his name mentioned as a possible trade chip since the beginning of the season.

About a half-hour before Friday's 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. approached Ben Revere with news. The 27-year-old outfielder had been traded to the Toronto Blue Jays, where he will join a revamped club with aspirations of ending a 22-year playoff drought. The Phillies in exchange acquired a pair of minor-league righthanded relievers in Alberto Tirado and Jimmy Cordero. Tirado, 20, pitched 31 games of high-A ball this season, and Cordero, 23, threw his last 17 games in double-A.

Phillies centerfielder Ben Revere did not start for the first time this season in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates at Citizens Bank Park. Revere said he has a quadriceps injury that worsened Wednesday during a 5-3 loss to the Pirates. He was asked if he expects to be in the lineup this weekend at Citi Field against the New York Mets. "I think so," Revere said. Manager Charlie Manuel "may give me one more day, but if I tell him I feel pretty good, he may put me in there [on Friday]

ATLANTA - There was no need in Pete Mackanin's mind to consider a contingency plan for Saturday, just in case his scheduled starter was no longer his scheduled starter. The trade market gained momentum on Friday with a deal between the Marlins and Padres that sent two starting pitchers to Miami, which eliminated a possible suitor for Jeremy Hellickson. It could hasten a trade involving Hellickson as other teams pursue backup options. For now, he is still slated to pitch at Turner Field against the Braves.

WASHINGTON - Cameron Rupp offered a few words to Jeanmar Gomez and then slapped the pitcher on the back. There was not much for the catcher to say. The task was simple. One more out and the Phillies were flying out of Washington with a win. The task proved to be too much. Jayson Werth ripped a two-run single up the middle. Gomez reached with his glove but never had a chance, and the Phillies left Nationals Park with a 5-4 loss Sunday afternoon. Their sixth straight loss to Washington proved to be the most brutal of them all. The Phillies - who looked dormant for much of the weekend - rallied from three runs down and went ahead in the ninth.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Jerad Eickhoff threw off a mound on Thursday and said the slight discomfort he continued to feel in his right thumb is natural for a fractured bone. The righthander said he threw 20 or 25 pitches, all of them fastballs. Eickhoff has been sidelined since suffering a non-displaced fracture in his thumb during a bunting exercise before camp opened. Doctors advised Eickhoff to treat the injury like a bruise. Eickhoff rated the discomfort as a "two or three" on a scale of one to 10, with 10 being the worst.

FIRST-YEAR general manager Matt Klentak continued to tidy up the Phillies' roster prior to next week's Winter Meetings with the addition of a veteran outfielder on Wednesday. The Phillies claimed centerfielder Peter Bourjos off waivers from the St. Louis Cardinals. Additionally, the team agreed to a one-year deal with Bourjos and with veteran utility infielder Andres Blanco. According to multiple reports, Bourjos will earn $2 million in 2016 while Blanco, who had been eligible for arbitration for the third year, will make $1.45 million.

EARLIER THIS WEEK, I was listening to the radio and a song came on by Timbuk 3 titled, "The Future's So Bright. " Truth be told, the song is fairly crappy, but it has one great lyric, "the future's so bright, I gotta wear shades. " As is often the case when I listen to music, I thought about the relevance of that phrase to life, and particularly, sports. I thought about which Philadelphia professional team it would apply to. Probably not to the somewhat disappointing (at this point)

DESPITE WATCHING their major league team enter the final month flirting with 100 losses, there has been cautious optimism among Phillies front office executives within the last six weeks or so. The pre-deadline trades of Cole Hamels, Chase Utley, Ben Revere and Jonathan Papelbon brought in an influx of talent to enrich the farm system. Their optimism was cautious, though, because they understand it takes starting pitching depth to enjoy sustained success at the major league level and, if they evaluated their upper minor league teams with an honest eye, they know there are more than a couple of question marks and few certainties.

Aaron Nola took the mound Tuesday night having thrown 139 innings this season between double A, triple A and the major leagues. The Phillies don't want their 22-year-old righthander logging many more than 170 or 180 innings this season, his first full year as a professional. To prolong his season and that of fellow rookie Adam Morgan, the team is considering using a six-man starting rotation in September. "We'll have the flexibility to do that at that time," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said.

Before the non-waiver trade deadline on Friday, when Ben Revere was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays for two minor-league pitching prospects, Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin was forced to play a bit of a balancing act with his outfield lineups. That was especially the case when it came to finding enough playing time for Revere, a proven .300 hitter, and Rule 5 draft pick Odubel Herrera, still developing and in his first full season as an outfielder. But with Revere now manning left field north of the border, Herrera has the rest of his rookie season to play every day as the Phillies' primary centerfielder.
