|Oswaldo Arcia remains on mini-roll with two-hit game |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/26/14) Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia continued to slowly improve his numbers Friday against the White Sox with his third two-hit performance in the last seven games. Among those hits was his second tater in the last three, a solo blast in the seventh inning.
Arcia now owns a .225 average, which doesn't seem like much until one considers it's at its highest point since June 16.

|Oswaldo Arcia breaks hitless streak with home run Wednesday |

(6/26/14) Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia went 1 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 6-2 loss to the Angels Wednesday.
Arcia was 0 for 29 in his previous eight games before clubbing a home run in the second inning Wednesday to give his team a brief lead. Even with the home run, the outfielder is just 3 for 46 over his last 14 games. He has hit .202/.269/.404 with five home runs and 14 RBI in 109 at-bats.
|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.
