Continued: Reusse: Less-excited Arcia should make Twins more excited

Gardenhire continued to put him in right field. Last year, Arcia started 54 games in left field and 21 in right for the Twins.

“I think right is better for me than left,” he said, then shrugged. “Either place, to [be able to] play every day.”

Arcia played mostly right field (when healthy) at Rochester. “His arm plays in right; Oswaldo can throw,” Glynn said. “He’s an athlete. He made some great catches for us. He’s going to turn into a good outfielder.”

Like he’s going to be a good hitter? “No, when I say, ‘Good hitter,’ I mean a really good hitter … a guy who is not only dangerous every time he comes to the plate but a tough out,” Glynn said.

Grandpa Tony put it this way: “Oswaldo has to be a good hitter for us. Look at our lineup. We need him.”

 

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays at AM-1500. preusse@startribune.com
