Brown, 27, batted .235 in a career-high 144 games for the Phillies last season with a career-best 22 doubles, one triple, 10 home runs and 63 RBI. He hit a team-best .305 with runners in scoring position and finished fourth on the club in RBI. Defensively, Brown committed just two errors in 188 total chances (.989 fielding %). He was selected to the National League All-Star team in 2013 after slugging 27 home runs in 139 games for Philadelphia. Brown was originally selected by the Phillies in the 20th round of the 2006 draft.

In 2014, Revere finished fifth in the National League in batting with a .306 average. The 26-year-old had the fewest strikeouts per plate appearance in the NL (12.78) and finished tied for first in hits (184) and third in stolen bases (49). He established career highs in nearly every offensive category in 2014 and became just the 12th different Phillie with 40 or more stolen bases in a single season in franchise history. Revere is a career .291 hitter and has posted a .306 average over his first two seasons in Philadelphia (2013-14).

The Phillies have no salary arbitration eligible players remaining.
