Listen my children and you shall hear of all the stolen bases of Ben Revere
For every death, there is a birth... or so they say. The disabling of Jason Kubel and Jim Thome cleared a path for the speedy Ben Revere. The Twins prospect (No. 4 or No. 5 depending on where you look) was hitting .303 with 8 SB in AAA before his promotion. He possesses very little to no power, but he makes all kinds of contact (8.3% K%). Revere has averaged over 46 SB per season while playing in the minors. He's fast. For those who have a need for speed, Revere should get plenty of playing time over the next few weeks. I'd expect him to hit .275-.280 over a large sample of At Bats. He's currently owned in 0% of Y! leagues. You may not write a poem about Ben Revere, but he should be of use. I'm taking him for a midnight ride, he was a recent addition to the Hart Foundation.
