MINNEAPOLIS -- And just like that, Oswaldo Arcia is headed back to Minnesota again.
One day after the highly touted outfield prospect was promoted and made his big-league debut, only to be optioned back to Triple-A Rochester after the game, the Twins recalled Arcia on Tuesday night.
He takes the place of Darin Mastroianni, who was placed on the disabled list because of what the team called a "stress reaction" in the left ankle he jammed in Monday's win over the Los Angeles Angels.
Manager Ron Gardenhire joked Arcia is "getting the mileage added onto his tickets. He's coming back, and we're going to ad lib with our outfield situations, and play him wherever we can and get him as many games and we can, and go from there.
"Mastro -- same thing with his foot, so they're going to put him in a walking boot and keep him off his foot for a while here."
Arcia, 21, singled in that game in his first major-league at-bat. But he also dropped a routine pop fly for a two-base error in the seventh inning.
In other injury news, Wilkin Ramirez -- whose trip to paternity leave opened Arcia's original, temporary spot on the active roster -- suffered a stinger in Tuesday's win over the Angels.
"It hit him in the spine, and tingled a bit up into his brain," Gardenhire said. :We got him off the field, but he's OK."
