CBSsports.com confirms that the Philadelphia Phillies have reached a deal to bring 24-year-old outfielder Ben Revere to Philly in exchange for starting pitcher Vance Worley and pitching prospect Trevor May.

Revere had a stellar 2012 season for only having played 124 games slashing .294/.333/.342 racking up 13 doubles and an impressive 40 steals.

The Twins will receive 25-year-old righty Vance Worley in return.

Worley followed up his impressive rookie campaign in 2011 with a disappointing sophomore showing in 2012.

The young starter finished the season with a 6-9 record, a 4.20 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP while striking out just 107 batters compared to 47 walks.

According to NESN.com prospect Trevor May is also rumored to be involved.

May was ranked 69th on Baseball America's Top 100 Prospects list prior to the 2012 season but failed to live up to the hype going 10-13 with a 4.87 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP in 28 starts at AA-Reading.

Aside from the implications this trade has on the two teams involved, it adds to the speculation on Michael Bourn and his final destination.

With the Phillies now believed to be out of the discussion, the options for Bourn are dwindling.
