OSWALDO ARCIA RUMORS

Player Profile #175: Oswaldo Arcia | OF | MIN

In 788 PA across 200 games, Oswaldo Arcia has 34 HR, 100 RBI, and — wait for it — 244 strikeouts. The power is undeniable, but at about 1.25 punchouts per game, Arcia is far from a finished product. And with identical 31.0% strikeout rates in both of his major league seasons, progress seems to have been slow. But that cursory analysis is unfair to Arcia. He was just 23 years...

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...

Oswaldo Arcia shatters bat amid a shower of splinters after striking out (video)

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.

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...

Oswaldo Arcia hit a grand slam, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Twins' Thursday night's 8-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

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.

Oswaldo Arcia: 2014 Fantasy Sleeper

With a starting job in Minnesota, Arcia could threaten 25 HR in 2014. It’s been awhile since we saw a homegrown Twins prospect patrol the outfield and contribute on the main stage. With the Twinkies farm system stocked with hitters, they’re making a push in free agency for pitching in 2014 and beyond. While we wait for guys like Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano to develop into...
