Twins' Luis Arraez: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez (knee) is starting Saturday against the Royals.

Arraez was sidelined over the past two games while dealing with minor knee soreness. However, manager Rocco Baldelli wasn't concerned about the issue, and the 23-year-old will return to action Saturday.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Battling minor knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez is battling minor knee soreness but could return to the lineup in the coming days, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

Arraez has been out of the lineup for two consecutive games, and manager Rocco Baldelli revealed prior to Friday's contest that the absence is due to minor knee soreness. However, Baldelli didn't sound too concerned about the issue and said the second baseman could return to the lineup in a day or two.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Sits again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez remains out of the lineup Friday against the Royals.

Arraez was a late scratch Thursday, though manager Rocco Baldelli indicated that he was simply having a pre-planned maintenance day and wasn't injured. In that context, his second straight game out of the lineup is quite unusual, though the fact that he has just one hit in his last six games could have something to do with it. Marwin Gonzalez will get the start at second base.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Lineup removal not injury-related
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Twins manager Rocco Baldelli clarified that Arraez was pulled from Thursday's lineup in what was intended to be a pre-planned maintenance day, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

Though Arraez was listed as the Twins' No. 6 hitter and starting second baseman in the lineup the club initially released, Baldelli said he decided a night earlier that the 23-year-old wouldn't start in the series finale. Ehire Adrianza will instead join the starting nine as a replacement for Arraez, who should re-enter the lineup Friday in Kansas City. Arraez has gone 1-for-19 at the plate over his last six starts.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Pulled from starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez was scratched from the lineup ahead of Thursday's game against the Pirates for unspecified reasons.

The Twins haven't provided an explanation behind Arraez's removal from the starting nine, but Marwin Gonzalez will shift over from third base to cover Arraez's usual post at second base, while Ehire Adrianza gets the nod at the hot corner. Arraez has walked four times while striking out just three times on the season, but a .229 BABIP has saddled him with a .216 average over his 42 plate appearances.

Twins' Luis Arraez: On bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox.

After driving in two runs on two hits in Friday's contest, Arraez will sit for Saturday's day game, likely to prevent any potential injuries. Ehire Adrianza is starting at second base, batting ninth.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Back in lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez (knee) is in the lineup for Saturday's intrasquad matchup.

Arraez exited Friday's intrasquad game with right knee soreness but will return to action just one day later. It's unclear whether the 23-year-old will face any limitations going forward, but his presence in Saturday's lineup is certainly an encouraging sign. If he's healthy, Arraez is expected to be the Twins' everyday second baseman this season.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Day-to-day with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez left Friday's intrasquad game due to right knee soreness and is considered day-to-day, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

The injury doesn't sound too serious, and Arraez still has a full week to get back on the field for the Twins' season opener against the White Sox on July 24, but any amount of lost practice time in an abbreviated summer camp certainly doesn't help. Arraez broke out with an impressive .334/.399/.439 slash line in 92 games as a rookie last year and is expected to be the Twins' everyday second baseman if healthy.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Struggles in Grapefruit League play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez hit .103 with zero extra-base hits, three walks and six strikeouts in 32 plate appearances this spring.

An 18.8 percent strikeout rate wouldn't be cause for concern for most hitters, but Arraez logged a 7.9 percent strikeout rate as a rookie, so it's at least worth noting. Even so, this was a tiny sample and Arraez has been working this spring on pulling the ball more when pitchers attack him inside. He has been mentioned as a candidate to lead off this season, at least against right-handed pitchers.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Bats leadoff Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez started at second base and batted leadoff in his first appearance of spring training in Saturday's win over Pittsburgh, going 1-for-3. He is a candidate to lead off this season, manager Rocco Baldelli told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

It's not clear if the Twins will move Max Kepler out of the leadoff spot after he had a breakout season in the role last year, but Arraez's skillset in making contact and getting on base, along with Kepler's power perhaps being utilized later in the order, could make sense. It's possible the Twins may mix and match their leadoff hitters as well. Either way, Arraez is set to start at second base with the departure of Jonathan Schoop via free agency.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez (ankle) will bat ninth and play second base in Game 1 of the ALDS on Friday against the Twins.

Arraez left Saturday's game against the Royals with an ankle sprain, but the issue was evidently fairly minor. He posted a .334/.399/.439 slash line in his 92-game rookie season, excellent numbers for a No. 9 hitter.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Makes ALDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez (ankle) is on the Twins' ALDS roster.

Arraez suffered an ankle sprain in the penultimate game of the regular season. His status for Game 1 on Friday against the Yankees is not clear, but the Twins clearly expect him to be able to play soon.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Could be on roster for ALDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez (ankle) has healed enough to be considered for the roster in the American League Division Series against the Yankees, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

The 22-year-old wasn't healthy enough to be considered for the 25-man roster earlier in the week but has healed enough to potentially be ready for the ALDS, manager Rocco Baldelli said Thursday. Arraez sustained a Grade 1 right ankle sprain Sept. 28 that put his status for the ALDS in doubt. If Arraez is unavailable, Jonathan Schoop would likely fill in at second base.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Diagnosed with Grade 1 sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez was diagnosed with a Grade 1 right ankle sprain after undergoing an MRI on Sunday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The MRI confirmed that the rookie avoided major damage to his ankle after he was carted off the field in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Royals, but the injury nonetheless clouds his availability for the start of the postseason. The Twins will have until Friday to set their roster for the ALDS, giving Arraez some time to heal up and prove that he's fit to play. If Arraez is excluded from the ALDS roster, Jonathan Schoop would likely take over as the Twins' primary option at the keystone.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Dodges major injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez suffered an ankle sprain in Saturday's game against the Royals, Audra Martin of Fox Sports North reports.

This is pretty easily a best-case scenario, as Arraez exited on a cart and was in tears after suffering the injury during a collision with Willians Astudillo while fielding a pop up. He won't return this weekend and it's unclear if he could return if the Twins make a deep playoff run.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Exits with apparent knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez left Saturday's game against the Royals on a cart with a right knee injury, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

He went down hard after colliding with Willians Astudillo on what should have been a harmless pop up and grabbed the back of his right leg around the knee area. This obviously sounds pretty bad, and it's safe to say Arraez won't play in Sunday's season finale.

September 27, 2019 09:56 PM
Twins' Luis Arraez: Gets night off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Kansas City.

Arraez went 0-for-5 in Thursday's series finale, and he'll head to the bench Friday with only a few games remaining in the regular season. Jonathan Schoop will get the call at the keystone and bat seventh.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez went 2-for-3 with a walk and two-run home run Wednesday against the Tigers.

Arraez took Drew VerHagen deep in the seventh inning to record his fourth homer of the season. Though power hasn't been Arraez's calling card, he's maintained an impressive .344 batting average and is currently in the midst of a four-game hitting streak. In addition to the strong batting average, Arraez has shown the ability to get on base -- he's maintained a .409 on-base percentage -- and has also scored 53 runs in 90 appearances this season.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Drives in two runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Monday's 5-3 win over the White Sox.

Arraez singled three times Monday, including a two-run base hit in the sixth inning to give Minnesota a 5-2 lead. The rookie utilityman has been red-hot in September, going 23-for-54 (.426 average) with 10 runs scored.

Twins' Luis Arraez: Maintains hot hitting in September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arraez went 1-for-4 with a walk in Sunday's 7-5 loss to the Indians.

Arraez's 1-for-7 showing at the plate over the final two games of the series qualifies as a slump for the rookie, who has showcased elite bat-to-ball skills since arriving in the big leagues in mid-May. The 22-year-old has turned what was expected to be a brief stay in the majors into a full-time role in the infield, unseating Jonathan Schoop for regular work at second base in the process. Arraez has recorded more walks (six) than strikeouts (five) in September and is batting .400 so far this month, lifting his season-long average to a robust .344 across 319 plate appearances.
