Both are pretty terrible offensively and can steal some bases and play defense. Neither cost much money. I really don't see the point.
He is 24yo and a perfect top of the order hitter he only swung and missed in 8.4% of his swings that was 2nd to his teammate Span's 8.2 in the AL. He will be 25 to start next year and has 74 steals to just 100 K's in 989 AB.
When looking for a CF there is more than OPS as we are talking about a guy who was 15th in the AL in batting this year and 3rd in SB, we need OBP and Revere posted a .383 OBP despite getting pushed up their system quick so there is only room to keep getting better. Look at what he's done in the minors to what Hamilton's done.
