On Oswaldo Arcia and Jason Kubel

The Twins on Wednesday reactivated Oswaldo Arcia from the disabled list and optioned him to Triple A Rochester. (Today marked the end of Arcia's rehab stint, so a move had to be made.)

Arcia is hitting .308/.349/.487 for the Red Wings, but the Twins front office told reporters that's not good enough:

OK, he struck out in about a fourth of his Triple A at-bats entering Wednesday's play. Jason Kubel has struck out in more than a third of his at-bats this season, and the rate is getting worse as time goes on.

Every at-bat Kubel gets in the majors while a healthy Arcia rakes in Triple A is an affront to the future of this team. And to the fans who aren't so enamoured with the nostalgic approach to the roster.

  1. Sounds like the organization wants to make Arcia more accountable. A laudable goal. Kubel is not the future of the team.
