Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia has been kept out of the lineup in the Venezuelan Winter League due to back problems, Rafael Rojas reports on Twitter. Arcia will be sidelined for five or six more days before the club makes a decision on what to do with him.
Arcia dealt with back issues in the final two months of the regular season as well, so the Twins have to be concerned. The 23-year-old is slated to be the Twins’ everyday left fielder, but he’ll have to be healthy to claim that role. In 2014, he hit .231/.300/.452 with 20 home runs and 57 RBI in 410 plate appearances.
