CLEVELAND -- Phillies center fielder Ben Revere played for the first time since Wednesday, batting ninth against the Indians on Tuesday. He had been out of the lineup, partly because of a strained right quadriceps and partly because he had been struggling offensively.

But Revere could get more frequent breaks if Delmon Young plays regularly in right field. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel indicated John Mayberry Jr. could see more time in center.

"I look at John kind of like how I look at Freddy Galvis on the infield," Manuel said. "We can definitely use Freddy Galvis to give guys breaks and all, so against lefties, I can give [Domonic] Brown or Ben a blow every now and then, too, just to see if we can keep [Mayberry] sharp."
