Arcia spends night at hospital with his infant

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia was held out of the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers, after spending most of the night at the hospital to tend to his baby, Oswell, who was sick.

Oswell, who was born on July 29, is fine after staying the night in the hospital, according to Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. But Arcia got only about an hour of sleep.


"He was at the hospital pretty much all night," Gardenhire said. "Everything is fine and the baby is fine. But him and his wife were at the hospital pretty much all night. So he's here, but he's just a little gassed right now and is working on just an hour of sleep last night."

Arcia has been on a hot streak recently, with six homers and 14 RBIs over his last 10 games entering Saturday. He was back in the lineup for Game 2, starting in right field and hitting fifth.
