Padres designated OF Oswaldo Arcia for assignment.

The 25-year-old has fallen on hard times since clubbing 20 homers in 372 at-bats for the Twins in 2014. In his limited stint with the Padres at the end of 2016 he hit just .116/.156/.279 with a pair of homers and four RBI in 45 plate appearances. he's still young enough and talented enough that he should generate interest on waivers.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
