News: Hughes (hip) earned his first win of the season Tuesday against the A's, only striking out two batters and allowing two home runs in six innings.
Impact: Hughes didn't have a great outing, but his teammates gave him enough run support to earn the win. His FIP is currently at 4.79, which would be the highest mark of his career, and he's only striking out 6.69 batters per nine innings.
News: Fien (shoulder) will start a throwing program Thursday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Impact: Fien landed on the disabled list last Thursday with a right shoulder strain and expects to be able to return after missing only the minimum 15 days. Assuming all goes according to plan with his throwing program, that timetable still seems within reach as Fien figures to resume his setup role in the bullpen when healthy.
News: Arcia (hip) is hopeful he'll be game-ready in 7-to-10 days after being placed on the DL on Monday, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.
Impact: Arcia is dealing with a right hip flexor strain, and though he'll still be on the DL during the given timetable, it's an encouraging sign that he may need to only miss the minimum 15 days. Eddie Rosario was called up Monday in a corresponding move to fill in the roster spot during Arcia's absence.
News: Rosario has been called up by the Twins, Tyler Mason of Fox Sports North reports.
Impact: Oswaldo Arcia hit the 15-day DL with a right hip flexor strain, opening up a spot for Rosario. He's hitting .242/.280/.379 with Rochester this season, but it seems likely that the Twins will give him at least semi-regular playing time while Arcia is on the shelf for the next two-plus weeks.
News: Arcia has been placed on the 15-day DL with a right hip flexor strain, Tyler Mason of Fox Sports North reports.
Impact: The Twins haven't revealed a timetable for Arcia's recovery, but Eddie Rosario was called up from Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding move Monday. Arcia is hitting .276/.338/.379 this season after posting three multi-hit efforts in his last four games.
News: The Minnesota Twins have placed left fielder Oswaldo Arcia on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right hip flexor muscle. To replace him, they promoted Rosario from Triple-A Rochester to make his major league debut.
Impact: The 23-year-old from Puerto Rico had six extra-base hits, including three home runs, and 12 RBIs in 23 games while batting .242 for the Red Wings. Rosario was a fourth-round pick by the Twins in the 2010 amateur draft.
