Oswaldo Arcia Homered Off Both U.S and Minnesota Flag Poles This Week

Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia continued his onslaught of opposing pitching over the last two weeks (6 HR, 14 RBI since August 12th) with another mammoth blast last night during their 20-run, 20-hit destruction of the hapless Tigers.

WATCH: Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia Smashes 486-Foot Home Run Against White Sox

Prior to Sunday I had never heard of Minnesota Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia. Chances are I am not the only one since he's only played in 59 games this season and is hitting just .230. However, after hitting a 486-foot monster of a home run against the Chicago White Sox I bet I'm not the only one that knows his name now. Loading...

Much like the rest of his Minnesota Twins teammates save for a few players having decent seasons, outfielder Oswaldo Arcia is having a season to forget.

WATCH: Oswaldo Arcia destroys bat following strikeout

The Minnesota Twins had an enticing 10-game homestand greeting them after the All-Star break with hopes to climb back into the Wild Card race but instead a 3-7 result likely ended any unexpected postseason chances. Outfield prospect Oswaldo Arcia is one of many struggling bats in the Twins lineup and has seen his average slip from .302 in early June to a paltry .221 after Sunday’s...

Arcia brings dash of flare, loads of power to Twins

MINNEAPOLIS -- Oswaldo Arcia took a second to admire his work. The Twins right fielder had just crushed a ball almost clear out of Target Field for his first career grand slam, and he wanted to make sure he saw the ball land more than 400 feet from home plate. As he started his home run trot, Arcia first did a little hop before continuing on his way to first base. It's that little...

Locked and loaded: Arcia sparks Twins in dramatic victory

MINNEAPOLIS -- Welcome back, Oswaldo Arcia. In just his second game with the Twins since April 4, Arcia provided one of the biggest bats in Minnesota's crazy 4-3 win over the Texas Rangers.

Pow! Twins' Arcia takes fly ball right in the kisser

July has been a tough month for the Minnesota Twins as they have dropped eight of their nine games to fall 11 games back of division-leading Detroit. A trip to Tropicana Field in Tampa has not brightened anyone's day, losing the first two games of the four-game series. For left fielder Oswaldo Arcia, it got even worse. Arcia was tracking down a fly ball at full speed in foul...

Oswaldo Arcia one of top rookies in AL this season

Oswaldo Arcia digs into the batter's box without much fear. The Twins' free-swinging outfielder has seen major league pitchers adjust to him since his debut on April 15, but he's made the appropriate adjustments in return. The left-handed Arcia isn't afraid to face some of the league's top left-handed pitching. Such was the case last week when Arcia lined a base...

Arcia's aggressive approach, confidence belies youth

MINNEAPOLIS Sometimes it's hard to remember that Oswaldo Arcia is just 22 years old. At the plate, the Twins rookie rarely shows his age. Just 21 games into his major league career, Arcia has already drawn comparisons to the late, great Kirby Puckett for a similar approach at the plate. Puckett rarely saw a pitch he didn't like, and that's been the case with Arcia....
