  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Steps out of lineup

    Arraez is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Arraez produced three hits in each of the past two contests and totaled three doubles, two RBI, two runs and a stolen base, but he'll take a seat Tuesday with lefty Julio Urias on the mound for Los Angeles. Jose Miranda will shift to first base while Byron Buxton rests his legs as the designated hitter.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Three hits again

    Arraez went 3-for-5 with one double and one RBI in Sunday's 3-2 loss against the Blue Jays.

    For the second time in as many days, Arraez notched three hits, increasing his average to an AL-leading .329 clip. While his performance this season has been admirable, it may be time to sell high as he has overperformed his xSLG and xwOBA dispite hitting just six home runs, and he is drastically overperforming his xBA of .285.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Three hits, steal in win

    Arraez went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, an RBI, one stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Blue Jays.

    Arraez's bat-to-ball skills have been a bright spot this year, but this was just his third multi-hit effort in 12 games since the All-Star break. It was also his fourth game of the year with multiple doubles. The 25-year-old's seen his batting average slip from .340 at the end of June to .325 after this contest. He's added an .822 OPS, six home runs and 35 RBI while setting career highs Saturday in steals (three) and runs scored (59) through 96 games overall.

The 25-year-old has produced at least one hit in 10 of his last 11 games, batting .400 with seven doubles, nine runs and two RBI over that stretch.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Three hits in Monday's win

    Arraez went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, one RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 6-3 extra-inning win over the White Sox.

    Arraez doubled twice early on and added an RBI single to spark a rally in the 10th inning. The 25-year-old continues to make consistent contact, as this was his seventh multi-hit effort in his last 11 games. He's gone 17-for-47 (.362) with six doubles and a triple in that span.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Draws two more walks

    Arraez went 0-for-3 with two walks and a run in Monday's 11-1 win over the Guardians.

    Even though he reached base in two of his five plate appearances, Arraez's on-base percentage actually fell to .427 for the season. That mark leads the American League by a wide margin and is just two points behind St. Louis' Paul Goldschmidt for the top OBP in the majors. Arraez will be back in the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader in Cleveland, with the 25-year-old starting at second base and batting leadoff.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Clubs fourth homer

    Arraez went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in a 6-5 loss to the Guardians on Tuesday.

    Arraez continued his impressive 2022 campaign with two hits, including the timely blast in the seventh. The occasional home run is a nice bonus from a contact hitter batting .362 and getting on base at an elite .442 clip. Arraez has found a home at the top of the Twins lineup against right-handed pitching and boasts a 162 WRC+.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Good to go Sunday

    Arraez (illness) is starting at second base and batting leadoff Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    The 25-year-old was removed from Saturday's contest while feeling under the weather, but he's apparently feeling better since he's back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale. Arraez is enjoying a strong June as he has a .396/.458/.528 slash line with two home runs, nine RBI and 11 runs through 14 games.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Battling illness

    Manager Rocco Baldelli said after Saturday's 11-1 win over the Diamondbacks that Arraez was removed in the fifth inning since he was feeling under the weather, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The early exit didn't prevent Arraez from turning in another useful line for fantasy managers, as he delivered a pair of base hits, a single and two runs across his three plate appearances. The Twins will check back in with Arraez early Sunday before deciding if he'll be part of the lineup for the series finale in Arizona.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Launches grand slam

    Arraez went 3-for-5 with a grand slam in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Rays.

    Arraez's line looks like that of a typical first baseman, rather than the elite-contact, minimal-power archetype that he actually fits into. He even struck out once, something he'd done in just one of his previous eight games. His third-inning grand slam off Shane Baz means he now has two homers in his last three games, though he still has a total of just three on the year.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Leading off Thursday

    Arraez (shoulder) is starting at first base and batting leadoff in Thursday's game against the Yankees.

    Arraez didn't appear in Wednesday's win over the Yankees due to right shoulder tightness, but he'll rejoin the lineup for Thursday's series finale. Over his last five games, he's gone 8-for-18 with five runs, an RBI, a walk and a strikeout.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Exits with sore shoulder

    Arraez left Tuesday's loss to the Yankees in the seventh inning with right shoulder tightness, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Arraez dove for a ball at first base and landed on his shoulder, which may have caused the discomfort. He was replaced by Jose Miranda at first base.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Won't start Wednesday

    Manager Rocco Baldelli said after Tuesday's 10-4 loss that Arraez (shoulder) won't be included in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Though Baldelli didn't express much concern after Arraez was removed in the seventh inning with right shoulder tightness, the skipper noted that the 25-year-old is dealing with a much milder version of the injury than what he's dealt with in the past. Even so, with a lefty (Nestor Cortes) on the hill for New York on Wednesday, the Twins determined that a day off was a good option for the lefty-hitting Arraez, who could still be available off the bench if he responds well to treatment. Jose Miranda will likely start at first base in Arraez's stead.
