1. Does anyone out there think the Arcia might be the #2 prospect in the Twins system, above Buxton and Hicks now?
2. I'm a little surprised Hicks was edged out. Are Adam Eaton and Jackie Bradley really better CF prospects or did they just have better years?
3. I would think this bodes well for having several Twins prospects in the top 50 and maybe the top 100? Could Twins have 3 top 50 prospects? 5 top 100?
4, Arcia listed as a DH? I don't know whether to be concerned about his glove or excited his bat beat out every other candidate at every other position.

First, I don't think his glove is a liability. He came up as a CF, but of course with Span/Revere/Hicks/Benson will probably never play an inning there again. From what I saw, he has good range and speed, and a decent arm.
And yes, when I make my Top 10 prospect ranking this off-season, he is in all likelihood going to be my #2 prospect in this organization. I'll have Sano first, then Arcia, with Buxton and Hicks also occupying slots in the top 5. Berrios also has been impressive, and we definitely need a pitcher to be excited about.
