Twins get Oswaldo Arcia and Josh Willingham back from the disabled list

Minnesota’s offense has gone in the tank after getting off to a shockingly strong start this season, but today the Twins get a pair of their best hitters off the disabled list in right fielder Oswaldo Arcia and left fielder Josh Willingham.

Arcia has been out since April 9 with a wrist injury and the Twins optioned him back to Triple-A once he was ready to come off the DL, but he crushed International League pitching and convinced them to actually add one of their best bats to the lineup (what a novel concept).

Willingham has been out since being hit on the hand by a pitch on April 7. His recovery went much more slowly than expected and based on his poor, injury wrecked performance last season there are a lot of question marks surrounding how much Willingham has left in the tank at age 35.

    Hope both can come back and have some success. Obviously, since Arcia is young, it would be great to see him become a piece for the future. But, it would also be great for Willingham to show some productivity, so he would have at least some trade value at the deadline.
