Five-run first wasted as Indians come back to drop Twins, 7-5

Oh. For a few glorious innings it looked like the Twins would waltz their way to a win. Danny Santana cracked a ringing double to lead off the bottom of the first, Brian Dozier walked, Joe Mauer picked up a ground-rule double into the left-center field gap, Kennys Vargas singled, and then Oswaldo Arcia took Trevor Bauer into the right-field concourse for a three-run shot. It was 5-0 before the Indians could record the first out of the game. Then, Cleveland just started picking away. Yan Gomes took Kyle Gibson deep for a solo shot in the second. Zach Walters notched a two-run single in the...

Oswaldo Arcia had an RBI double in Friday's loss to the Royals.

Postgame Twinsights: "We don't pay you for hits," Oswaldo Arcia tells Kennys Vargas

HOUSTON -- Funny moment at Kennys Vargas' locker after this one in which the hulking rookie related a conversation with Twins right fielder Oswaldo Arcia. They both see defensive shifts frequently, although mostly from the left side for the switch-hitting Vargas. Their response? "A couple times when they play like that, I try to hit the ball on third base," Vargas said. "But they throw me inside, and it’s tough for me to hit the ball the other way. Arcia told me, 'Hey, don’t worry about that. Just pull the ball and hit it over the fence. Don’t try to [...] The post Postgame Twinsights:...

Twinsights: Twins slugger Oswaldo Arcia changes agents again

HOUSTON –Twins right fielder Oswaldo Arcia has changed agents again, this time switching from the Legacy Sports Group to Praver Shapiro Sports Management. Arcia said he made the switch about six weeks ago. Long-time agents Barry Praver and Scott Shapiro represent Chicago White Sox rookie slugger Jose Abreu as well as recently acquired Twins left-hander Tommy Milone. Their Venezuelan clients include San Francisco Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro and Miami Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez. Arcia is from Venezuela. Arcia, 23, also changed representation over the winter, leaving Martin...

Monday (The return of Joe Mauer) Edition: Wha' Happened?

Joe Mauer is slated to come off the disabled list in time for tonight’s game against the Astros. It sounds as though either Trevor Plouffe or Oswaldo Arcia could go on the DL to make room, which is a nice relief because it means the Twins are going to fiddle with big Kennys Vargas (not that they would, anyway, since he’s been batting in the middle of their order and doing just fine). We don’t know what this will mean for the lineup as a whole, but we do know this: the Twins have 46 games left in this season, and they are an important 46 games for Mauer. For all the jokes about Mauer’s...

Twins 8, White Sox 6: Oswaldo Arcia, Trevor Plouffe spark rally

CHICAGO -- This time the Twins survived another meltdown by their reeling bullpen.

De Aza, Eaton take responsibility for loss

CHICAGO -- Adam Eaton and Alejandro De Aza each wished he could have had a play back from the latter innings of the Chicago White Sox's 8-6 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night. For De Aza, it was a line drive to left field in the eighth inning which he regretted he was unable to catch with two out. The hard-hit ball by the Twins’ Oswaldo Arcia turned De Aza around, but he still put himself in position to snatch it as he backpedalled deep in the outfield.

Twins' Oswaldo Arcia must change approach against lefties, Ron Gardenhire says

CHICAGO -- Twins right fielder Oswaldo Arcia is too young to become a platoon player, but his opportunities against left-handed pitching could be severely restricted if he doesn't change his approach.

Twinsights: Oswaldo Arcia must change his approach against lefties, manager says

CHICAGO -- Twins right fielder Oswaldo Arcia is too young to become a platoon player, but his opportunities against left-handed pitching could be severely restricted if he doesn’t change his approach. Entering Saturday’s play, Arcia’s .155 batting average (9 for 58) ranked eighth-worst among the 297 major leaguers with at least 50 plate appearances against left-handers. Among lefty batters, Arcia ranked 83rd out of 87 qualifiers. “Not good,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. “Hasn’t been good.” Arcia, 23, struck out in a pinch-hit appearance Friday night against Chica......
