Minnesota Twins To Call Up OF Prospect
According to Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Minnesota Twins will be calling up Baseball America’s #41 overall prospect, Oswaldo Arcia, to fill a roster spot while Wilken Ramirez is on paternity leave.

Although this will only be a temporary roster move because he would essentially be the 4th corner outfielder when Ramirez gets back, it will give Twins fans a glimpse of the future. Arcia doesn’t play CF naturally and isn’t a top of the order hitter so he should be no competition to the scuffling Aaron Hicks (2 for 43 to begin the year).
