  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Collects three hits

    Arraez went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's 7-6 win over Kansas City.

    Arraez entered the leadoff spot with Byron Buxton getting the day off, and he made a strong impression. He started the game with a single and added two more base hits, including in the eighth inning when he scored on a Max Kepler hit. The 25-year-old has gone 8-for-16 with eight runs scored over his last four games, bringing his season slash line to .336/.437/.411 through 126 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Gets leadoff chance Sunday

    Arraez will start at first base and bat leadoff Sunday against the Royals, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    With Byron Buxton getting a breather in the series finale, Arraez will get a look in the leadoff role after batting second in two of the Twins' last three games. Arraez starred Saturday in the Twins' 9-2 win, going 2-for-3 with two walks, three runs and two RBI.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Not starting Friday

    Arraez will sit Friday against Kansas City, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Arraez has swung a hot bat this season, hitting .323/.425/.406, and has emerged as the Twins' primary first baseman in the absence of Miguel Sano (knee). Jose Miranda will fill that spot Friday.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Scores four times

    Arraez went 3-for-5 with a walk, two doubles, a stolen base, four runs scored and two RBI on Wednesday against the Athletics.

    Arraez turned in his third multi-hit game across his last seven starts. The highlight of his performance was his two extra-base hits, as he entered the game with only three doubles and a home run across 107 plate appearances on the campaign. Despite the lack of power, Arraez has a .425 on-base percentage and has regularly hit near the top of the Twins' order, so he should be a good source of runs.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Out against lefty

    Arraez is out of the lineup for Monday's game in Oakland.

    With southpaw Zach Logue on the hill for Oakland, the lefty-hitting Arraez will give way at first base to the righty-hitting Jose Miranda. Arraez returned from a stint on the COVID-19-related injured list to start in each of the Twins' last four games, going 5-for-13 with four walks, a run and a stolen base.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Reaches three times in return

    Arraez went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk in a 5-0 loss Thursday against Houston.

    Arraez returned after missing six games while on the COVID-19 injured list. Batting second in the Twins' lineup, he walked in the first and recorded a double and a single in his final two plate appearances. The versatile infielder leads Minnesota with a .316 average and .395 OBP and has a 10:7 BB:K ratio. While he has never hit for much power at any level, the 25-year-old provides value with his great on-base skills and defensive versatility.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Activated, starting Thursday

    Arraez (illness) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list and will start at first base and bat second in Thursday's regularly scheduled game against the Astros.

    The 25-year-old was unavailable for the completion of Wednesday's suspended game but will return from a one-week absence for the series finale. Arraez has a .301/.378/.370 slash line with one home run, seven RBI and seven runs through 23 games this season, and he should continue to have a regular spot in the lineup versus right-handed pitching.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Likely to be activated Thursday

    Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said he expects Arraez (illness) to return from the COVID-19 injured list for Thursday's game against the Astros, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Before the Twins and Astros play the final game of their series, they'll resume Wednesday's contest, which was suspended in the top of the fourth inning with Houston leading, 5-1. Arraez won't be available off the bench for that contest, but Minnesota plans to activate him after the suspended contest concludes. The 25-year-old is expected to step back into an everyday role against right-handed pitching, though the lefty-hitting Arraez could find himself on the bench regularly versus lefties.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Clears protocols but not activated

    Arraez cleared COVID-19 protocols Tuesday but has yet to return to the active roster, Megan Ryan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Arraez has been out since testing positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, but he's apparently beaten the virus rather quickly. He'll remain inactive for at least one more day but seemingly has a chance to return Wednesday.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Arraez tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The Twins are dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak within their clubhouse, and Arraez will have to isolate from the team after testing positive. The team isn't expected to make a roster move prior to Thursday's game against the Orioles, but Jose Miranda and Gary Sanchez should see an uptick in playing time while Arraez is sidelined. The 25-year-old will be eligible to return once he clears the league's COVID-19 protocols.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Sitting Thursday

    Arraez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles.

    Arraez finds himself on the bench for the second time in the past three games despite the fact righty Spenser Watkins is starting for Baltimore. Jose Miranda will receive another start at first base while Gary Sanchez rests his legs as the designated hitter.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Idle versus lefty

    Arraez is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.

    With lefty Bruce Zimmermann on the bump for Baltimore, the lefty-hitting Arraez will take a seat as the Twins stock up on more right-handed bats to counter the southpaw. Rookie Jose Miranda will pick up a second straight start, this time replacing Arraez at first base after filling in for Gio Urshela in his MLB debut in Monday's 2-1 win.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Avoids arbitration

    Arraez and the Twins avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.13 million contract Sunday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    After a hot start to the season, Arraez has been in a slump recently, as he's gone 1-for-15 over the last four games. However, the 25-year-old won't require an arbiter to reach an agreement with Minnesota. In spite of his recent cold spell at the plate, Arraez is hitting .299 with a homer, seven RBI and six runs over 21 games in 2022.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: On bench against lefty

    Arraez isn't starting Saturday's game against the Rays, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Arraez has started against just two southpaws this year, and he'll get a breather with left-hander Shane McClanahan starting for the Rays on Saturday. Gary Sanchez will serve as the designated hitter while Ryan Jeffers starts behind the dish.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Sits against southpaw

    Arraez will sit Tuesday against the Tigers, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Arraez has started against every righty the Twins have faced this season, but he's been in the lineup just once against a lefty. The platoon role is working out well for him so far, as he's hit .354/.426/.458 while striking out just four times in 15 games.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Four hits against White Sox

    Arraez went 4-for-5 with three RBI in Saturday's 9-2 win over the White Sox.

    All four knocks were singles, but the rest of Minnesota's hitters were getting on base enough that Arraez could make his hits count. The 25-year-old super-utility player has seen action at first base, second base and third base already this season, slashing .364/.429/.477 through 14 games with a homer, five runs and seven RBI.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Not starting against left-hander

    Arraez isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Royals.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Sits against lefty

    Arraez is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    With a southpaw (Rich Hill) on the mound for Boston, the lefty-hitting Arraez will retreat to the bench after a string of four consecutive starts in which he went 3-for-15 with a double, two walks and two RBI. Gio Urshela will get the nod at third base in the series finale.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Sits versus lefty

    Arraez is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Arraez has picked up starts in only two of the Twins' first five games, but all three of his absences from the lineup have come when Minnesota has opposed a left-handed starting pitcher. With that in mind, Arraez may still have a stranglehold on a near-everyday role, despite his lack of usage to begin the campaign.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Takes seat vs. lefty

    Arraez is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Arraez will head to the bench for the second time in the opening series with Seattle trotting out another left-handed starter in Marco Gonzales. Gio Urshela will start at third base in his place Sunday. Arraez should be back in the lineup for Monday's series finale since righty Chris Flexen is scheduled to pitch for the Mariners.
