Earlier this week outfield prospect Oswaldo Arcia was called up by the Twins for all of one day as a fill-in while Wilkin Ramirez was on paternity leave. He made his MLB debut, collected his first hit and his first error, and immediately returned to Triple-A.
However, last night the Twins placed backup outfielder Darin Mastroianni on the disabled list with an ankle injury that’s bothered him since spring training and recalled Arcia to take his place on the roster. This time around Arcia will be in Minnesota for at least a couple weeks and should play regularly, although that may require some lineup juggling by manager Ron Gardenhire.
Arcia is a couple weeks shy of his 22nd birthday, which made him the sixth-youngest player in the Triple-A International League, but he hit .394 with a 1.201 OPS in 10 games there after dominating Double-A last season.
