Twins Option Arcia, Roster at 49

On Saturday morning, the Minnesota Twins announced that they had optioned outfielder Oswaldo Arcia to Triple-A Rochester where he is likely to begin his 2013 season. [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]

Arcia was the Twins minor league hitter of the year in 2012 when he combined to hit a combined .320/.388/.539 (.928) with 36 doubles, 8 triples, 17 home runs and 98 RBI between Ft. Myers and New Britain. He played very well in the Venezuelan Winter League.

Unfortunately, soon after arriving at his second big league spring training, he was sidelined with a strained intercostal (muscle in the side). He was unable to play ntil last weekend, but he has been in the lineup most days since.

After yesterday's announced moves, the Twins also send catcher Danny Lehmann back to minor league camp. That means that the spring training roster is now down to 49 players. There are still 24 pitchers (7 non-roster), 5 catchers (2 non-roster), 11 infielders (5 non-roster) and 9 outfielders (4 non-roster).

That number will need to get down 25 before Opening Day, although there will likely be at least a couple of players on the Disabled List as well.
