CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Phillies center fielder Ben Revere pronounced himself healthy and ready to go Thursday. Revere broke his right ankle in July, which required season-ending surgery.

"It may have helped make me faster, because of my form now," Revere said. "I've been running a lot since rehab, and I'm working on getting out of the box. I think I'm getting out of the box a lot quicker."

Revere hit .200 with a .456 OPS through April last season, before hitting .347 with a .784 OPS from May 1 through July 13.
