Phillies fans who have been on the edge of their seats hoping and praying that their faves would bring back and sign veteran outfielders Ben Revere and Domonic Brown (center and left in photo above) can rest easy.
Revere has demonstrated one of the worst arms in the majors and Brown seems to have gotten to this level without the ability to properly catch a fly ball.
The Phillies avoided arbitration with both and signed them to 2015 contracts. Brown will earn $2.5 million in 2015 and Revere will get a salary bump to $4.1 million.
Last season Revere flirted with the batting title, but finished fifth in the National League batting .306 while posting the fewest strikeouts per plate appearances in the National League at 12.78 and finished tied for first in total hits with 184.
Brown, meanwhile struggled in 2014 batting just .235 in a career-high 144 games. He did post a career-best 22 doubles, one triple, 10 home runs and 163 RBIs while hitting a team-high .305 with runners in scoring position.
Brown and Revere were the only remaining players on the Phillies roster who are arbitration eligible.
