The Twins continue to play without outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, who is out with a sore wrist. Arcia hopefully will be able to return before too long following a cortisone injection. As...

Minor league team considers selling hot dog-flavored cocktail

Minor league baseball teams are known for their zany uniforms and quirky promotions, but one unnamed team may be taking the strangeness to a whole new level. The team in question is considering the introduction of a hot dog-flavored cocktail known as “Frank Collins,” which includes gin, beer, Worcestershire sauce, and of course, a hot dog spear for garnish. The recipe also...

Player Profile #164: Oswaldo Arcia | OF| MIN

There are two things that pop into my mind when talking about Oswaldo Arcia. First, that power potential is oh so sweet, and second, how great was Waldo Geraldo Faldo in Family Matters? There aren’t enough Waldo’s in this world. Of course, you guys only care about that first thought as his power could be a legit fantasy asset in 2014. Arcia came into the 2013 season ranked...

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...

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....
