Great story Patrick.

you forgot to mention that he has ZERO power, can't throw, doesn't walk, and gets caught stealing at an alarmingly high rate...yep sounds like a classic Twin in the mold of former Twins legends Rich Becker and Jason Tyner. If the guy weren't a former first round pick and the team wasn't trying to prove that it is not incompetent at drafting, he wouldn't even sniff the majors.

If Reusse keeps writing articles without his signature cynicism, I might have to stop hating him. Nice article.

He is a better all around player right now than Span is. He should be taking that job some time this season. This kid is a fabulous talent. He has allstar written all over him. Put Span on one side and Young on the other. Nice looking outfield.

I've really enjoyed watching Revere's rise through the minors, and am excited to think about what he might do with the Twins in the next few years. I think it will be to early to declare drafting him a success though until he's had some significant production at the big league level

We saw that catch he made the other day, outstanding, just wish there was a camera somewhere that got it so all could see it. Would love to see it again.

Revere is only slightly taller that Gary Coleman from Different Strokes, and appears to have little if any hitting talent at the Major league level.

My recollection from last year; he'a a punch and judy hitter, with little power to the alleys.

Lets Get, it Lets Go Twins! Can't wait for the season to start!

Every team needs a power hitter, but not every player needs to be a power hitter. We need speed in center field and we need a solid hitter at the plate who can get on base and be fast when they get there. In 50 games he hit .325, had 29 RBI, and 16 multiple base hits - 10 of which were triples. Revere seems to be our promising answer to those needs. Not a guaranty, but certainly promising. Go Ben and Go Twins!
