Update on Minnesota Twins' Oswaldo Arcia, Josh Willingham

The Minnesota Twins are patiently waiting for outfielder’s Oswaldo Arcia and Josh Willingham to make their returns to the starting lineup.

Arcia was placed on the 15-day disabled list not that long ago with a sprained wrist. He’s received a cortisone shot after injuring his wrist during batting practice before taking on the Chicago White Sox. There’s no word on if he’ll make a couple rehab starts before returning to the big league club.

But according to Matt Berardino on Twitter, Arcia has been taking some swings underwater and hitting off a tee

If he’s able to skip out on a rehab start, he could re-join Minnesota next week. As Berardino also noted, Josh Willingham has been lifting weights but is yet to swing a bat.

He suffered a hairline fracture in his left wrist, so Willingham isn’t allowed to swing until it’s fully healed. Good call by the Twins organization.
