Game 19: Revere recalled from Triple-A, in Twins lineup

MINNEAPOLIS — Ben Revere was officially recalled from Triple-A Rochester to take the place of Josh Willingham, who was placed on paternity leave, and is starting in left field against the Red Sox tonight.

Revere, who was optioned to Triple-A on April 14 when the club claimed outfielder Clete Thomas off waivers from the Tigers, said he’s not sure if his callup will be a temporary or permanent one. Willingham is expected to return in time for Saturday’s game against the Royals.

“They said it would be three days or the rest of the season,” Revere said. “It’s a big gap. I won’t mind that. Just go out there these three days, just get my games in, get my at-bats, anything I can do to help this team win. Hopefully, I can stay.”

Willingham’s wife, Ginger, gave birth to the couple’s third child this afternoon, a boy named Rogan James. Here’s a picture of Willingham with his newborn son, courtesy of Ginger’s Twitter account.
