Brown, Revere sign and avoid arbitration

The Phillies got some administrative work done before the deadline to sign arbitration-eligible players, inking outfielder Ben Revere to a one-year, $4.1 million deal, while Domonic Brown agreed to a $2.5 million contract for 2015.

Revere's second season in Philadelphia was a relatively healthy and fruitful one. He finished with a .306 batting average and collected two home runs, seven triples, 13 doubles and drove in 28 runs while finishing with a National League-high of 184 hits.

He also committed just four errors in 329 chances and chipped in with a pair of assists defensively in center field.

Brown, whom many are still waiting to see blossom as he enters his third full season and sixth major-league campaign, hit . 235 in a career-best 144 games in 2014. The Florida native and incurable Dallas Cowboys fan hit 10 homers with 22 doubles and added 63 RBI, a far cry from his career-best 27 longballs in 2013 which earned him his first and only All-Star nod.

Brown only made two errors and posted four assists in 188 chances out in left field.
