Continued: Mixup on infield fly in ninth kills Twins' rally

Disciplined, not promoted

Outfielder Oswaldo Arcia seemed to be a candidate to replace new father Joe Mauer on the roster when he was lifted from Class AAA Rochester’s game after one at-bat Tuesday. But Arcia was actually removed from the game in the top of the third for not hustling.

Officially, Red Wings manager Gene Glynn told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, “[Arcia’s] eyes were blurry.” Glynn met with Arcia in private after the game.

“He was sent down there with a couple other guys to get his swing back and getting back to playing the way he can play,” Twins assistant GM Rob Antony said. “And you’re not going to get better when you’re watching the game. We fully support Mr. Glynn.”

The Twins placed Mauer on the paternity list, meaning he has three days to return to the team. Catcher Drew Butera flew in to take his roster spot, not Arcia.

Arcia entered Tuesday 7-for-11 with two home runs since being sent to Rochester right before the All-Star break. He returned to the Red Wings lineup on Wednesday.
