Phillies clear arbitration slate, ink Revere, Brown

PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies agreed to terms with outfielders Ben Revere and Domonic Brown on one-year contracts Friday, avoiding salary arbitration hearings for 2015.

Revere will earn $4.1 million after making a base salary of $1.95 million in 2014. Brown, eligible for arbitration for the first time in his career, will earn $2.5 million after receiving $550,000 last year.

Revere finished tied for first in the National League with 184 hits last season and was fifth with a .306 average. He also led the Phillies with 49 stolen bases. Brown hit .235 with 10 home runs, 22 doubles and 63 RBIs over 144 games last year.
