MINNEAPOLIS One of the Minnesota Twins' top prospects will get his first shot at the majors on Monday. The Twins announced they have recalled outfielder Oswaldo Arcia from Triple-A Rochester to take the roster spot of Wilkin Ramirez while Ramirez is on paternity leave. Arcia will bat seventh on Monday against the Angels and take over in left field. The 21-year-old Arcia is widely regarded as one of the Twins' top prospects and was off to a hot start at Rochester. In nine games with the Red Wings, Arcia batted .414 with three home runs and eight RBI. Arcia does have some experience playing center field in the minors 77 games but has primarily been a right fielder. The left-handed hitting Arcia began the 2012 season at High-A Fort Myers but eventually was promoted to Double-A New Britain. In 69 games at Double-A, he hit .328 with 10 homers, 20 doubles and 67 RBI. Arcia will wear No. 31 with the Twins, although he'll be donning No. 42 in his big league debut as today is Jackie Robinson Day all across Major League Baseball. Follow Tyler Mason on Twitter.
