Twins | Byung Ho Park taking the day off

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:58:27 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Byung Ho Park is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. OF Miguel Sano is serving as the designated hitter, while OF Oswaldo Arcia draws into the lineup in right field and is hitting sixth against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: Sano has elite power but is a boom-or-bust daily pick. Arcia is of a similar nature to Sano with big power and a big swing but with with plenty of strikeouts to boot. He's hitting only .217 this year but has four home runs in 83 at-bats. Arcia qualifies as more of a sleeper selection in DFS.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia not in the lineup

Sat, 21 May 2016 08:55:52 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Saturday, May 21. OF Robbie Grossman will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Grossman went 3-for-4 in his first game since being recalled and is back in the starting lineup. Grossman can be an option for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better players to use.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia draws out against Toronto

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:27:03 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20. OF Robbie Grossman is starting in left field and batting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is struggling to find his game, but he remains a decent depth piece in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Remember, he hit 20 home runs through just 410 plate appearances in 2014, and he is still only 25. This is Grossman's season debut, and he is nothing more than a low-priced flier in daily contests Friday.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia back in the lineup

Thu, 19 May 2016 13:48:29 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia is starting in left field and batting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Thursday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia figures to see plenty of playing time following Eddie Rosario's demotion to the minors Wednesday. Arcia hit 20 home runs through just 410 plate appearances in 2014 and owns huge power upside. For now, though, he is nothing more than a depth option in deep mixed leagues.

Twins | Several MIN regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:18:05 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier, 3B Trevor Plouffe and C Kurt Suzuki are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Sunday, May 15. 3B/OF Miguel Sano will play the hot corner and bat third, INF Jorge Polanco will bat sixth and play second base and C Juan Centeno will start behind the plate and bat eighth. In addition, OF Oswaldo Arcia will bat fifth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Sano is making his fifth start at third base this season but he has struggled over the last two weeks, batting just .179 with two home runs and four RBI in 39 at-bats. Centeno is making his second consecutive start and is worth considering as a value play in DFS after going 5-for-11 with a home run through his first four games this season. Polanco should be viewed exclusively as a source of desperation cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia, Kurt Suzuki resting Saturday

Sat, 14 May 2016 11:13:58 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia and C Kurt Suzuki are out of the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Saturday, May 14. OF Eddie Rosario will play left field and bat seventh, while C Juan Centeno will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario is just 4-for-21 over the past two weeks and is batting .198 for the season, so he is not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon. Centeno is 3-for-8 at the plate and should be viewed as a means of desperation cap relief in daily contests.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia sitting out

Wed, 11 May 2016 08:12:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11, with OF Eddie Rosario hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario is hitting just .196, but he faces a relative unknown against Tyler Wilson. Rosario has hits in three straight and has extra-base pop, which makes him a basement option in DFS.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia draws into lineup

Fri, 06 May 2016 14:52:43 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia is starting in left field and is hitting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos Friday, May 6. OF Eddie Rosario will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia has a lot of raw power from the left side and has three home runs and nine RBI on the year, to go with a .273 average. Latos has been magnificent to start the year but is due for regression. It could come tonight, and Arcia takes the form of a sleeper pick with potential.

Twins | Oswaldo Arcia starting Wednesday

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:22:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Oswaldo Arcia is starting in left field and batting seventh Wednesday, May 4, against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers.

Fantasy Tip: It's unfortunate Arcia doesn't get more playing time, as this is only his second start since April 29. Many thought he'd be farther along by now after cranking 20 homers a couple of years ago in 103 games. Through 52 at-bats this season, he already has three dingers, to go with nine RBI and a .250/.304/.423 slash line. He's got upside if he could just crack the lineup more.
