Outfielder Ben Revere just wants to contribute for Nationals

BY foxsports • January 11, 2016

WASHINGTON (AP) Ben Revere doesn't care where he plays in the outfield or where he hits in the lineup for the Washington Nationals.

Revere said on a conference call with reporters on Monday that he is working on his arm strength and hopes to help Bryce Harper win another NL MVP award.

The Nationals acquired Revere from the Toronto Blue Jays for reliever Drew Storen in a trade Friday. Washington general manager Mike Rizzo says Revere's role ''remains to be seen.''

The Nationals already have Harper in right field, Jayson Werth in left, and Michael A. Taylor in center. The left-handed-hitting Revere played left field in Toronto but has played center field in the past.

Revere is a .295 hitter with very little power and an arm that Rizzo acknowledged was weak.
