|Oswaldo Arcia returns to lineup on Wednesday |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/12/14) Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia has overcome an illness and will start Wednesday against Pittsburgh, per the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
Arcia was a pleasant surprise in a miserable 2013 season for the Twins. He showed strong production with 14 home runs and 41 RBI, though he struck out in exactly one in every three at-bats.
|Oswaldo Arcia still out Tuesday |

(3/11/14) Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia is still sitting out Tuesday, according to MLB.com.
Arcia is dealing with an illness, but was expected to be in the team's lineup Tuesday. He'll need another day in order to get ready. Arcia hit .251/.304/.430 in 351 at-bats last year.
|Oswaldo Arcia, Aaron Hicks could be back on Tuesday |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/8/14) Twins outfielders Oswaldo Arcia and Aaron Hicks are not expected back in a spring game until Tuesday against Tampa Bay, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Arcia was sent home sick Thursday with flu-like symptoms and didn't make the trip for Friday's game. Hicks felt minor discomfort in his elbow during batting practice Thursday before his team's game against the Cardinals was rained out.
|Oswaldo Arcia, Aaron Hicks sidelined Friday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/7/14) Twins outfielders Oswaldo Arcia and Aaron Hicks were not available for Friday's action against the Pirates due to minor injuries, MLB.com reports.
Arcia was sent home sick Thursday with flu-like symptoms and didn't make the trip for Friday's game. He is day-to-day and should return soon.
Hicks felt minor discomfort in his elbow during batting practice Thursday before his team's game against the Cardinals was rained out. However, he isn't on the team's official internal injury list given to the medical staff and should be fine within a few days.
|Oswaldo Arcia's rookie season was punctuated by shoulder and wrist injuries, inconsistency and demotions, yet he showed off some impressive power during the time he was in the Twins' lineup. Despite strikeout and ground ball rates much higher than his minor league norms, Arcia hit 14 home runs and drove in 43 runs in 351 at-bats. Health permitting, Arcia should get far more playing time this year, as he probably won't have to compete with the likes of Chris Colabello, Chris Parmelee, Chris Herrmann or anybody else named Chris you can think of. If Arcia walks more often, makes more frequent contact and hits fewer grounders, as he did in the minors, he could enjoy one of the more notable breakout seasons in 2014. He can probably go undrafted in standard mixed leagues, but he could be a nice waiver grab in those formats, and he is worth targeting in deeper leagues on Draft Day.
