Stevenson went 3-for-5 with a run scored, an RBI and three stolen bases in Triple-A Syracuse's win over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old got promoted from Double-A at the beginning of May but needed some time to adjust against tougher competition, hitting .169 (20-for-118) through his first 31 games with Syracuse. Something seemed to click a couple of weeks ago for Stevenson, however, and in his last 15 games he's slashing .382/.414/.527 with seven multi-hit performances. He doesn't profile to ever supply much power, but his speed, center-field defense and ability to make contact should allow him to carve out a major-league role as a fourth outfielder down the road -- or perhaps even a starter in the mold of a Ben Revere or Denard Span.
