Let's not add Arcia & Willingham to the lineup until they are actually back, otherwise you will only get 0-fers in those spots. There will be plenty of time to fit them back into the lineup when they return.

Why are you moving Dozier out of the lead-off spot in favor of Fuld? That doesn't make sense to me. It moves all of your better hitters down the lineup a spot, giving them less at bats. I like the idea of adding some platoons, but moving everyone back so Fuld can get more at bats seems, well, batty.
Having a guy hitting .220 leading off isn't ideal. And why have your #1 power hitter hitting 1st? I'd actually be OK moving him down even further, but I think either he or Mauer have to hit 2nd for lack of other options.
That said, the biggest problem right now is that Plouffe, Collabello and Kubel are all slumping at the same time which is making the middle of the order a black hole.
