News: Arcia (wrist) took swings underwater and off a tee Friday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: Arcia's ailing wrist is experiencing a slow recovery at best, but with the Twins out of town until Apr. 25, he'll have another week to progress through the injury. In Friday's contest at Kansas City, the Twins have turned over their corner outfield spots to Chris Colabello (right field) and Darin Mastroianni (left).(RotoWire, )

News: Arcia had a cortisone shot in his injured wrist Tuesday, and he will not travel with the Twins on their upcoming road trip, Brandon Warne of TwinkieTown reports. Impact: This means that April 25, when the Twins return home to face the Tigers, will be the soonest we could see Arcia, as he's reported little progress from his injury. The musical chairs in the Twins' outfield will continue in his absence.(RotoWire, )

News: Arcia, who is eligible to come off the 15-day DL on April 20, reported little progress with his injured wrist after Sunday's game, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: It sounds like Arcia may be out longer than the minimum 15 days as a result. The Twins will continue to use a number of players to cover right field in his absence.(RotoWire, )

News: Minnesota placed Arcia on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday because of a strained right wrist, with the move retroactive to Saturday. Impact: Arcia sat out for the fourth straight game with the injury. He took full part in batting practice but still felt discomfort afterward. With left fielder Josh Willingham also hurting since he was hit Sunday on the left wrist by a pitch, the Twins couldn't wait longer for Arcia to heal.(STATS, 6:46pm)
Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Arcia (wrist) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Impact: Arcia took some swings in the batting cage prior to Wednesday's game but intimated that his wrist just isn't improving. The 22-year-old's DL stint can be backdated to April 5, meaning he'll be eligible to return April 20, but it's uncertain whether he'll be ready by then. Darin Mastroianni will be up to take Arcia's place on the active roster, but Jason Kubel and Chris Colabello are the top candidates for increased playing time.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 9, 2014
News: Arcia (wrist) will likely land on the 15-day disabled list, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Impact: After hitting on the field Wednesday, Arcia relayed that his wrist isn't improving, meaning a bit of rest and rehab is seemingly on tap. In his stead, Jason Kubel and Chris Colabello are the first men up to help shore up the Twins' corner outfield.(RotoWire, )

News: Arcia (wrist) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Athletics, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports. He took some swings in the batting cage, however, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: After Arcia missed the previous three games, the team suggested he would need to be ready to play Wednesday in order to avoid heading to the DL. No roster move was made and his taking some swings is a good sign, so the possibility exists that Arcia could be available off the bench Wednesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Arcia missed his third straight game Monday due to a sore right wrist. Impact: The Twins have only two other healthy natural outfielders, Aaron Hicks and Jason Kubel. Backup first baseman Chris Colabello was in right field on Monday.(STATS, 1:56pm)
Mon. Apr 7, 2014
News: Arcia (wrist) will be examined by team doctors Monday, after which he's hopeful he'll be able to take some swings, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: Arcia needs to be ready to play in Wednesday's game if he's going to avoid a trip to the DL, and Monday's examination should provide concrete information on whether this is a possibility. If he's able to take swings free of wrist pain, look for him to return to action Wednesday, but if not, a DL trip should be announced later Monday.(RotoWire, )

News: Arcia (wrist) will need to be ready to play by Wednesday if he's going to avoid a trip to the DL, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports. Impact: Arcia continues to rest and take anti-inflammatories for his ailing wrist, but it appears the Twins plan to place him on the DL if he remains unavailable through Wednesday. The Twins have Tuesday off, so Arcia will have a few days to treat the wrist with the hopes of returning to full strength by the Wednesday deadline. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has stated that he doesn't want to play shorthanded like they had to at times last season, so moving Arcia to the DL would fall right in line with this philosophy.(RotoWire, )

News: Arcia (wrist) will rest for a couple days, before undergoing an evaluation, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Impact: Because the Twins have a day off Tuesday, Arcia's next opportunity to participate in a game will arrive Wednesday versus the Athletics. In the meantime, expect Jason Kubel to cover right field.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Arcia is out of the lineup Saturday due to a wrist injury, Mike Beradino of the Pioneer Press reports. Impact: The wrist injury is in the same spot that bothered Arcia last season, so the recurring injury seems to be the culprit behind his 2-for-18 (.111) start this year. He'll likely have some tests, and the club will evaluate him afterward. Consider him day-to-day, but a DL stint is certainly possible, so be prepared for the worst.(RotoWire, )
