Twinsights: Casey Fien will require a rehab assignment

A crowded Twins disabled list could begin to clear out here soon. In addition to reliever Tim Stauffer (oblique), who has tossed three scoreless innings over two appearances at Triple-A Rochester, the Twins are seeing progress for several others currently sidelined as well. Left fielder Oswaldo Arcia (hip) took swings in the cage Friday for the first time since landing on the DL on May 4. He said he still feels some pain when trying to throw, but he sounded hopeful he might be able to avoid a minor-league rehab assignment. “I’ll DH, whatever,” Arcia said. “I don’t think I […] The...

For Twins' Oswaldo Arcia, another nagging injury

For Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, a strained right hip flexor is yet another nagging injury that has forced him to the sidelines.

Twinsights: Paul Molitor breaks down decision to summon Eddie Rosario

Before deciding to give outfielder Eddie Rosario his first big-league audition, the Twins’ braintrust gave strong consideration to a pair of Rosario’s teammates at Triple-A Rochester: outfielder Aaron Hicks and catcher Josmil Pinto. Both, in fact, have been outproducing Rosario through the season’s first month, but the need for primarily a left fielder to replace the injured Oswaldo Arcia (strained right hip flexor) along with the expected short-term nature of the call-up seemed to impact the decision. “Aaron is doing fine,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. “I’m hearing some...

Twinsights: Oswaldo Arcia adds another injury to a long personal list

For Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, this strained right hip flexor is yet another nagging injury that has forced him to the sidelines. In 2013, as a rookie, he missed time with a pulled intercostal muscle (in spring training) as well as knee, wrist and shoulder issues. Last season, he landed on the disabled list four games into his season with a strained right wrist, eventually missing five weeks before being optioned to Triple-A. He also landed on the disabled list at Class A in 2011 with a strained ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow. This, however, is his first […] The post...

Twins Call Up Eddie Rosario

With Oswaldo Arcia on the DL, the Twins have called up prospect Eddie Rosario Earlier this afternoon we learned Oswaldo Arcia was headed to DL with a hip injury and the Twins have called up Eddie Rosario from Rochester to take his place. Rosario has a slash of .242/.280/.379 which is an OPS of .659 this season with the Red Wings. Heading into 2014 season, Rosario was one of the Twins highest regarded prospects but was suspended for the first 50 games because of a second failed drug test which was believed to be marijuana. After the suspension, Rosario returned to action but looked extremely...

Twinsights: Eddie Rosario earns first promotion to majors

Triple-A Rochester outfielder Eddie Rosario has earned his first promotion to the Twins' big-league roster, a person with direct  knowledge said Monday afternoon. Rosario, 23, was hitting just .242 with a .280 on-base percentage through 95 at-bats for the Red Wings, but the Twins have injury concerns with two of their four full-time outfielders. Left fielder Oswaldo Arcia had to leave Sunday's game with irritation in his right hip, and center fielder Jordan Schafer has been hobbled for weeks by a sore right big toe and for the past 10 days by a sprained ligament in his right knee. The...

Twinsights: Oswaldo Arcia leaves with hip irritation

Twins left fielder Oswaldo Arcia was removed from Sunday’s game with irritation in his right hip. Arcia suffered the injury during a four-run Twins fourth while leaving the batter’s box on a single to right. He hobbled his way to first before being replaced by pinch runner Jordan Schafer. Arcia, who is day to day, reached safely in all three plate appearances while making a rare start against a left-handed starter (John Danks). Arcia was hit on the right shoulder with a pitch his first time up and singled in the seven-run third. Briefly  --While reliever Caleb Thielbar reported to...
