Minnesota Twins' Youth Movement Highlights .500 June
I looked at the best and worst performances for the Twins in June.
Rookie Oswaldo Arcia was called up on June 11 when Aaron Hicks went on the disabled list, and Arcia had an immediate impact. He batted .328/.394/.500 with two home runs and 10 RBIs. However, the biggest impact in the month of June came from an unexpected source: second baseman Brian Dozier.
Is this just a month fluke (or even four-game fluke) for Dozier? Should we be concerned about Jared Burton?I have been an avid fans of the Twins since Kirby Puckett's breakout year of 1986 and have had numerous articles about the Twins published on Yahoo! Sports.

Yeah, I'd like to see Willingham get a DL stint to rest that knee. He's hurting the team right now and would give the team a chance to give regular at bats to test Arcia and Parmelee.
