Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia and designated hitter Kennys Vargas are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against lefty Chris Sale and the White Sox.

The team is going righty-heavy against Sale, with Joe Mauer, who is serving as the team's designated hitter Sunday, the only lefty in the lineup. Third baseman Trevor Plouffe moves across the diamond to play first base, while Eduardo Escobar and Eduardo Nunez enter the lineup in place of Arcia and Vargas.

The Twins are underdogs (+135) against the White Sox Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.

Molitor: Mauer could get occasional break from the field this season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Twins manager Paul Molitor told reporters he plans to give first baseman Joe Mauer an occasional break from the field throughout the season, reports the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Saturday.

"Probably more DH-ing than sitting," Molitor said. "If Joe is healthy, I want him to play. I've told him that. We'll see how it goes. You don't expect him to play 162. We're all hoping Joe stays healthy, and we're going to try to play him as much as we can as long as he feels like he can go out there and help our team."

Twins' Joe Mauer improving power to right field
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Twins catcher/first baseman Joe Mauer has put in extra time this spring working with hitting instructor Tom Brunansky, in the hopes of improving his power to right field.

"I know he's been spending time with Tom working on that," manager Paul Molitor said, per MLB.com. "Whether it's a runner on first and trying to pull the ball hard, or getting into counts and then turning it loose. I know he's added a little more confidence in that swing. He can keep people more honest by doing things at different times, but at the same time not making drastic changes to who he is." 

Maurer is hitting .229 with a home run and five RBI this spring.
