Oswaldo Arcia homered in a second straight game to plate the Padres' only run in Wednesday's loss to the Braves.
Arcia also walked. He's 4-for-11 with three extra-base hits in three games since joining the Padres. The hot start could make it more difficult for the Padres to divvy up playing time in the outfield with Hunter Renfroe expected to join the team. Aug 31 - 10:48 PM

Oswaldo Arcia smacked his first home run as a Padre in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

Playing in his second game with his new club, Arcia launched a two-run shot off of Julio Teheran in the fourth inning. He also drove in a run with a groundout in the ninth, collecting the Padres' only three RBI on the night. Arcia should start plenty against righties and is worth a shot in NL-only leagues for his power potential.

Padres claimed OF Oswaldo Arcia off waivers from the Marlins.

It's his fourth team in a span of three months. He'll draw the start in right field Saturday and bat sixth against his former team, the Marlins. Arcia has struggled to a .226 average with six homers and 19 RBI in 55 games for the Marlins, Rays and Twins.
Aug 27 - 5:05 PM

Marlins designated OF Oswaldo Arcia for assignment.

Arcia made it just one game with the Fish, getting the boot Thursday to clear a roster spot for new outfielder Jeff Francoeur after being claimed off waivers from the Rays on Tuesday. Arcia has batted just .226/.299/.390 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 177 plate appearances this season between Minnesota, Tampa Bay, and Miami.
Aug 25 - 3:36 PM

Marlins claimed OF Oswaldo Arcia off waivers from the Rays.

The Rays designated him for assignment on Friday. This will be the third team Arcia has played for in 2016. The 25-year-old hasn't hit much this year (.229 with six homers in 157 at-bats) but he'll give the Marlins some outfield depth while Giancarlo Stanton recovers from a strained groin.
Aug 23 - 3:15 PM

Rays activated OF Oswaldo Arcia from the 15-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

The 25-year-old got off to a hot start after the Rays acquired him in a trade, but he wound up batting just .259/.328/.444 over 61 plate appearances. Arcia will get another shot somewhere, but the former top prospect has certainly been a bust after a promising start to his career.
Aug 19 - 3:34 PM

Oswaldo Arcia (elbow) went 2-for-4 with a walk in both parts of a doubleheader Wednesday with High-A Charlotte.

That counts as his second and third minor league rehab games. Arcia, out since July 27 with an elbow strain, should be ready for activation sometime this weekend. He's batting .229/.303/.395 with six homers and 19 RBI in 53 games this year between Tampa Bay and Minnesota.
Aug 11 - 9:28 AM

Oswaldo Arcia (elbow) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Charlotte.

And he could return to the Rays' active roster by the end of this week. Arcia landed on the disabled list July 29, retroactive to July 27, with a right elbow strain. He's batting .229/.303/.395 with six homers and 19 RBI in 53 games this year between Tampa Bay and Minnesota.
Aug 9 - 4:51 PM

Rays placed OF Oswaldo Arcia on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 27, with a right elbow strain.

Arcia suffered the injury nearly a week ago and hasn't felt right even after returning to action. It's unclear at this point how much time he might miss.
Jul 29 - 3:30 PM

Oswaldo Arcia (elbow) finished 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Sunday in the Rays' loss to the A's.

Arcia made an early exit from Saturday's game after suffering a mild right elbow strain and may have still been in some discomfort for Sunday afternoon's series finale in Oakland. Arcia, 25, is batting .226/.301/.387 with six homers and 19 RBI in 52 games this season.
Jul 25 - 6:16 AM

Oswaldo Arcia went 2-for-3 with an RBI but the Rays lost on Saturday.

He stroked an RBI single in the second inning and added a double later in the game. The part-time player is now batting .230 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 152 at-bats.
Jul 24 - 12:04 AM

Oswaldo Arcia suffered a mild right elbow strain on Saturday night against the Athletics.

Arcia was in obvious pain after a hard swing in the top of the seventh inning. He was 2-for-3 with an RBI in the game and is batting .230/.306/.395 for the year.
Jul 23 - 11:01 PM

Oswaldo Arcia was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Red Sox due to illness.

It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Nick Franklin will take his place in the lineup and play left field. Brandon Guyer will slide over to right field.
Jun 29 - 10:48 AM

Oswaldo Arcia went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a two-run double in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

Arcia came over from the Twins in a trade on Friday. He failed to pick up a hit in his first three at-bats with his new club, but came through in a big way on Sunday. He notched a solo home run in the fourth inning and a two-run double in the fifth to finish with three RBI. In 103 at-bats with the Twins prior to the trade, the 25-year-old outfielder was hitting just .214/.289/.369 with four homers and 12 RBI. He is young enough and talented enough that his career shouldn't be considered a lost cause yet, though it is off to a rocky enough start.
Jun 26 - 5:29 PM

Oswaldo Arcia is expected to be in the lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

The Rays are going with Jaff Decker, Taylor Motter, and Corey Dickerson in their outfield and Brad Miller out of the DH spot in the first game. Arcia hasn't played since June 14, so the Rays didn't want him to play both games of the doubleheader. The 25-year-old should split time between right field and the DH spot with his new team.
