MINNEAPOLIS Oswaldo Arcia is quickly racking up the frequent flier miles.
The Twins placed outfielder Darin Mastroianni on the disabled list following Tuesday's game and recalled Arcia from Triple-A Rochester. Arcia made his major league debut Monday while Wilkin Ramirez was on paternity leave but was optioned back to Rochester after the game.
Now, he'll fly back to Minneapolis to join the Twins prior to Wednesday's series finale against the Angels.
Mastroianni is dealing with an ankle injury and re-aggravated it during Monday's game. He was originally slated to play left field in Tuesday's game and bat leadoff but was a late scratch. The injury has limited Mastroianni to two starts so far this year.
Arcia, a 21-year-old outfielder, collected his first major league hit in his first at-bat Monday and finished the game 1-for-3. He also committed an error in left field and was taken out for a defensive replacement late in the game. After going 1-for-4 on Tuesday with Rochester, Arcia is now batting .394 with three home runs and eight RBI in 10 games at Triple-A.

MINNEAPOLIS Lost in the shuffle of Joe Mauer's four-hit night on Tuesday was the performance of the guy hitting ahead of him in the Twins' lineup.
Second baseman Brian Dozier led off against the Angels, his first career start as Minnesota's leadoff man. His 2-for-4 night was enough to convince manager Ron Gardenhire to put Dozier back in the leadoff spot for the second...
MINNEAPOLIS Last season, at the ripe old age of 38, Twins infielder Jamey Carroll was an every-day player. He played in 138 games, just shy of his career high.
One year later, Carroll's role in Minnesota has changed drastically. Through the first two weeks of the 2013 season, the 39-year-old Carroll is no longer an every-day player. In fact, he's made just two starts this...
MINNEAPOLIS All offseason, the main emphasis for the Minnesota Twins was to improve their starting rotation. To do so, the team signed two veteran free agents and traded for another pitcher in hopes of rebuilding what had been the American League's worst starting staff in 2012.
Though it's still early in the 2013 season, it appears those offseason changes have made a difference...
