MINNEAPOLIS -- Outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, who is on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 5 with a sprained right wrist, received a cortisone shot in his wrist on Tuesday.

Arcia, who originally injured his wrist taking batting practice in the cages during the first series of the year in Chicago, is expected to rest his wrist for the next few days.

"We'll let that settle in for the next couple days and then test it out," Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony. "It's still a little inflamed and a little sore. So hopefully that'll take care of that."

Antony added the Twins still haven't decided on whether Arcia will go on a rehab assignment before rejoining the club.

Jason Bartlett, who has been on the DL with a sprained left ankle since April 7, began his rehab assignment on Tuesday. He played in a game at extended spring camp, and will play in a few more this week before playing with Class A Advanced Fort Myers, according to Antony.
