The Reds signed outfielder Ben Revere according to Jon Heyman of Fanrag Sports. Revere, 29, is expected to compete for a backup spot with Phillip Ervin.

Revere appeared in 109 games for the Angels in 2017. He hit .275 last season with a .308 on-base percentage. He has a career .284 average and a .319 on-base percentage. Check out the rest of his stats here.

Revere gives the Reds another option if they don’t like what they see from Ervin. It also gives them some flexibility. It’s no secret that the Reds fielded trade offers for Billy Hamilton during the offseason. Revere is an eight-year veteran – he’s appeared in 857 career games. He gives them another option in center field, if the right offer for Hamilton comes their way. Revere is fast – he doesn’t have Hamilton’s speed, but he is the same type of player.

Watch some of Revere’s best highlights in the video below.
