MINNEAPOLIS -- Oswaldo Arcia's big-league dream lasted one game.

Immediately after Monday night's 8-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels, the team announced the highly touted prospect is headed back to Triple-A.

Arcia, 21, singled in the second inning in his first major league at-bat. But he also dropped a routine pop fly for a two-base error in the seventh inning.

Wilkin Ramirez, who welcomed a baby girl Venus with his fiance Karaine, will be reinstated on Tuesday.

"We didn't want to send the kid back down (to Rochester), as hard as it might be, but he'll get plenty of opportunities if he keeps doing what he's been doing in the minor leagues," manager Ron Gardenhire said.

"It was a lot of fun watching him walk up there to the plate. We brought him up for a reason -- to help us out for a game or two -- but Wilkin will be back tomorrow."

Arcia will return to a Triple-A triple-slash of .414/.500/.793, while Ramirez has gone 2 for 11 in five games of action with the Twins.
