Revere returns to Twins' lineup on Sunday

SEATTLE -- After missing two games with a sore right ankle, Ben Revere returned to the lineup against the Mariners on Sunday, starting in center field and batting leadoff.

Revere rolled his ankle stepping on first base while trying to beat out a throw on Wednesday, but felt much better on Sunday.

The Twins were being extra cautious with Revere, and called up outfielder Matt Carson for outfield depth on Friday.

"We're in a little bit better situation now with Revere healthy," Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said. "We've got him, we've got [Josh] Willingham, we've got [Darin] Mastroianni, we've got Carson, we've got guys."
