The Philadelphia Phillies made a couple moves this offseason, specifically trading away pitching to the Minnesota Twins for young, speedy outfielder Ben Revere.

Revere has much to prove at the major league level, yet the Phillies organization has great confidence in its young player.

Here are four additional reasons why Ben Revere should bat leadoff for the Phils in 2013.
