Twins' Oswaldo Arcia working on plate discipline this spring


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia knows if he has any shot to impress his coaches this spring, he needs to be better at the plate, reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

"It's important for me," Arcia said. "I can see the ball better if I have more patience at the plate. The manager and the GM say, 'I need you to see more pitches and not strike out as much. Last year, there was a lot of strikeouts.' This year, I work in Venezuela."

General manager Terry Ryan wants to see that improvement before he makes a decision.

"His strikeout percentage isn't good and has to improve," Ryan said. "But he hardly has a year of service time. It seems like he’s been up here a long time but he hasn't."

Twins granted fourth option year on Oswaldo Arcia


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) The Twins have been granted a fourth option year on outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Arcia has already been optioned three times in his career, but Minnesota was granted a fourth option after Arcia spent less than 10 days in the minors in 2014. While Arcia is expected to open the year as one of the team's starting outfielders, the move allows the Twins to send him down if he disappoints during spring or gets off to a poor start. Once Arcia is out of options, the team would have to try and send him through waivers in order to put him in the minor-leagues.

The 23-year-old Arcia hit .231/.300/.452 in 372 at-bats last year.
