MINNEAPOLIS -- Ben Revere has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball since being recalled from Triple-A Rochester on May 17, as he ranks seventh in the American League in batting average since his callup.

Revere, who was batting .273 before being optioned to Rochester on April 15, has hit .342 over his last 19 games.

The outfielder is now batting .330 with five doubles, two triples, and eight stolen bases in 25 games this season.

"I feel a little bit more comfortable," said Revere, who hit .267 with a team-high 34 stolen bases in 134 games as a rookie last season. "I'm seeing pitches I want and seeing the ball a lot better. I'm finding the right holes.

"Every hitter can say they're more comfortable when that happens. But it's just one of those things where everything is going my way and hopefully it'll keep going."
