Oswaldo Arcia does it again

Oswaldo Arcia worth considering as waiver-wire add


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) On Thursday morning's podcast, Al Melchoir and I were asked to buy or sell Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia hitting 15 home runs the rest of the season. Al, without hesitation, said he was buying it, and I eventually agreed after a little hemming and hawing.

My biggest concern is that Arcia has been disappointing thus far in his young major-league career. He put up nice numbers in the minors, but he hasn't yet performed as well at the major-league level, but I believe I was overthinking the question. 

Arcia obviously didn't get much playing time earlier this season before going on the DL with a wrist injury. He was then sent to the minors, where he performed quite well. Arcia hit .312 with a .597 slugging percentage, .962 OPS, five home runs, seven doubles and 18 RBI in 22 games. Four of those home runs came in his last eight games before being recalled.

Arcia homered Tuesday and has hit safely in his first three games back from the minors. It appears Arcia is going to get his chance to play regularly, so if you are looking for a potential sleeper to add off waivers, it might be worth putting in a claim for Arcia.


Oswaldo Arcia clubs first home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia went 2 for 4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in his team's 4-3 win over the Rangers Tuesday.
