Twins' Luis Arraez: Collects homer, three RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez went 3-for-5 with a home run, a double and three RBI in a 13-6 win over the Rangers on Thursday.

Arraez ignited the Twins' explosive performance with a two-run homer to right field in the second inning and later plated their 13th and final run with a single in the eighth. The multi-hit performance was his sixth in August, pushing his average to .349 (16-for-46) this month. In his rookie season, the 22-year-old is hitting a robust .355 while scoring 34 runs in 55 games.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Arraez will sit for the day game after the night game, opening up second base for Jonathan Schoop. The rookie had logged starts in each of the past five contests, going 6-for-16 with five RBI and a 3:0 BB:K. His on-base percentage now rests at .422 for the season, placing him fourth among all players in the majors with at least 200 plate appearances.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Resting in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's series finale with the Braves.

Arraez will take a seat after his streak of three straight games with multiple hits came to an end with an 0-for-4 showing in Tuesday's 12-7 loss. The rookie is still batting an immaculate .348 across his first 186 big-league plate appearances and at this point appears to have displaced Jonathan Schoop as the Twins' primary second baseman. Schoop will draw the nod at the keystone in Wednesday's series finale in what will be just his second start in seven games.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Seizing control of second-base job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez will bat second and start at second base Sunday against the Royals.

With Jonathan Schoop on the bench for the third time in four games, Arraez seems to have at least temporarily inched ahead of him on the depth chart at the keystone. The rookie has earned the everyday job after submitting an impressive .346/.420/.438 slash line through his first 174 plate appearances and has occasionally been rewarded with placements in the top half of the lineup as a result of his success. Arraez doesn't offer much power (two home runs) or speed (one stolen base), however, so he's mostly just a batting average, on-base percentage and runs play in fantasy leagues.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Playing almost every day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez will start at third base and bat sixth Thursday against the White Sox, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

This marks Arraez's ninth consecutive start, and he's still sat just one time in July. He's been playing a lot of third base lately, with Miguel Sano shifted over to first to cover for C.J. Cron (thumb). The 22-year-old doesn't appear headed for a reduced role anytime soon given his .379/.455/.484 slash line (155 wRC+). When Cron's back, Arraez may take over primary duties at second base.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Seeing steady work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez will start in left field and bat ninth Saturday against the Athletics, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Arraez's bat-to-ball skills and ability to play multiple infield and outfield spots should continue to earn him at least semi-regular starts for the Twins, at least until Byron Buxton (concussion) returns from the injured list. Since the beginning of July, the rookie is hitting .347 while striking out just four times in 49 at-bats.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Batting cleanup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez will start at third base and bat fourth Saturday against the Rangers.

Arraez will get a bump up in the order with C.J. Cron (thumb) being placed on the injured list, drawing his third start of the season at the cleanup spot. Arraez is hitting .413/.477/.547 across 86 plate appearances in his first season in the majors.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Starting in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez will start in left field and bat fifth Thursday against the Rays.

A utility infielder by trade, Arraez will receive his first big-league start in the outfield with Eddie Rosario (ankle) labeled as day-to-day and all of Byron Buxton (wrist), Marwin Gonzalez (hamstring), Ehire Adrianza (abdomen) and Willians Astudillo (oblique) on the injured list. Even though he may not be an ideal defensive fit in the outfield, Arraez would carry some intrigue for fantasy purposes if he ends up seeing regular work. The rookie has displayed a polished hit tool in his limited MLB action to date, going 19-for-42 (.452 average) with only two strikeouts.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Recalled Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez was recalled from Triple-A Rochester prior to Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.

Ehire Adrianza was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Arraez has been a hitting machine in the minors and majors this season, but he will likely only serve as a part-time player while Adrianza is on the shelf. We could see him competing to be the Twins' starting second baseman in spring training next year, so he is worth stashing in dynasty leagues.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Arraez was sent down despite hitting well in his 30 plate appearances with the team, posting a .375/.467/.583 line. He showed impressive ability to make contact, striking out at only a 3.3 percent clip. His demotion likely signals the return of Nelson Cruz (wrist) to begin the team's series at Cleveland on Tuesday.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Swipes first bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez went 1-for-2 with a walk, an RBI and a stolen base Monday against Milwaukee.

Arraez knocked in the game's first run during the second inning on a single to center field. Since making his major-league debut in mid-May, the 22-year-old is 8-for-20 with a home run and three RBI in nine games.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Hits first career home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez knocked a solo home run while going 2-for-4 in a victory over the Angels on Tuesday.

Arraez's first home run as a major leaguer -- a 384-foot shot to center field -- closed out the scoring for the Twins in the comeback victory. Since his debut May 18, the rookie is hitting an eye-popping .583 (7-for-12). Judging by his .344 average in 160 minor-league at-bats this year, the ability to hit for average may be legit, though the power display Tuesday probably is not -- he has hit only six homers in 1,376 career minor-league at-bats.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Collects three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez went 3-for-4 with a run scored Monday in the Twins' 3-1 win over the Angels.

After reaching base three times in Sunday's series finale in Seattle, Arraez was awarded a second straight start at second base Monday. The rookie again delivered at the dish, adding three base hits to his ledger while coming around to score the Twins' first run of the night. Despite the strong start to his MLB career, Arraez doesn't appear to have a clear path to everyday playing time with the Twins at full strength around the diamond and seemingly committed to Jonathan Schoop and Jorge Polanco as their regular middle-infield tandem.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Set for debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez was called up by the Twins on Friday, Phil Miller of the Star Tribune reports.

Arraez opened the season with Double-A Pensacola, hitting .342/.415/.397 in 38 games, with more walks (18) than strikeouts (13). He reached Triple-A for the first time Tuesday and will be promoted again after just three days at that level, with Nelson Cruz (wrist) expected to head to the injured list in a corresponding move. Arraez, who has played second, third, short and left field, doesn't have much in the way of tools other than his ability to make contact, but that skill is strong enough that he could have some fantasy value if he finds regular playing time.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Climbs to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins promoted Arraez from Double-A Pensacola to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday.

Arraez will assume the roster spot of another well-regarded infield prospect in Nick Gordon (thigh), who was placed on the 7-day injured list. Over 164 plate appearances at Pensacola this season, the 22-year-old slashed .342/.415/.397 while going 3-for-6 on stolen-base attempts.
