Should Blue Jays keep Ben Revere ?

Let's look at the stats...

Speed is probably the top reason to consider Ben Revere . His 2015 OBP was .334 and that includes a horrid start with the Jays.  He walked at the rate of 7.8% and struck-out at 9.3% of the time (very seldom). 

He is the dictionary definition of a contact hitter and serves the Jays very well in the lead-off spot.

His defense speaks for itself. He has excellent outfield range and instincts. His arm strength I would consider average 

His combined salary for 2015 was 3 million.

The Jays can control Ben for 1 more season through arbitration.

Projected salary: $6.7 million
