The Minnesota Twins have placed Ryan Doumit on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf and will recall outfielder Ben Revere from AAA Rochester, according to the team:

Doumit, 31, was signed by the Twins to a one-year, $3 million deal back in November after seven seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Spending the majority of his time with the Twins as designated hitter, Doumit has also seen time as catcher, right fielder, and at first base. He's hitting .264/.328/.445, down from his career line of .270/.333/.442.

Revere, a 24 year-old center fielder, comes back to the club after hitting .278/.316/.333 in twenty plate appearances over six games earlier this season. He comes back from AAA Rochester, where he's hitting .322/.354/.333.
