OSWALDO ARCIA NEWS

Where’s Oswaldo?

If you've been scouring all your picture books for a proper fantasy hitter in the final week, look no further. Oswaldo Arcia was 3-for-4 with his 19th home run and two RBI last night. Arcia has a nice little six-game hitting streak, with four homers in that stretch. To be fair, however, he's also sat four games in that span with a tweaked muscle in his upper back. Injury...

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...

Twins’ Oswaldo Arcia Succeeds In Destroying Bat Over His Knee (Video)

We’ve seen many players in the MLB attempt to break their bats this season, and the results have been varied. New York Mets catcher Anthony Recker and Seattle Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison, for example, both succeeded in splintering their lumber, while the likes of Bryce Harper and Carlos Gomez both failed rather miserably. Harper and Gomez should take notes from Oswaldo...

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.

Having him go 7 after using up every clown in the car last night was huge. Joba and Nathan didn’t go quietly, but they escaped. Regarding Nathan – I’d like to point out a) his ERA was 6...

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...

Twins hitters come through in clutch in hardfought win

MINNEAPOLIS -- A common refrain heard inside the Twins' locker room lately has been the need to come up with timely hits with runners in scoring position. After the offense carried the slumping pitching staff in April, the bats failed to come through regularly in May and left plenty of runners on base. Finally, Minnesota got a few key hits in that situation Wednesday. Four of...
