The Phillies acquired outfielder Ben Revere from the Twins, reports MLB.com's Todd Zolecki.
Revere, 24, hit .294/.333/.342 in 553 plate appearances for the Twins this year, stealing 40 bags in 49 tries. With just one year and 149 days of Major League service, Revere will not be arbitration eligible until 2014 at the earliest, and is under team control through 2017.

It's so frustrating to see a GM in our own division like Amaro work for trades to improve his club in what seems like an instant.
Then we have a GM who "has interest" and has "laid groundwork" on players but doesn't get anything done. Doesn't seem to have creativity either.
I understand waiting it out for Dickey until Greinke signs and teams becomes desperate, but dam n, you can do something else in the meantime. We need more than one Outfielder and we need a catcher.
They gave up Vance Worley to the Twins
Worley, 25, posted a 4.20 ERA, 7.2 K/9, 3.2 BB/9, 0.81 HR/9, and 46% groundball rate in 133 innings this year for the Phillies.
He was great in 2011, but injured in 2012.
He would be one of the best bats the team had immediately, and a starting CF.
Yeah, no big deal. They gave up the great Vance Worley too... Wow.
