Twins left fielder Oswaldo Arcia exited Minnesota's 6-0 victory against the Blue Jays on Saturday early shortly after being hit on his right hand by a pitch in the sixth inning.

A 78-mph knuckleball from Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey ricocheted off Arcia's right hand. Arcia remained in the game immediately following the pitch, proceeding to first base and then stealing second. But Clete Thomas eventually replaced Arcia in left field in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Arcia is day to day with what the Twins labeled as a "right hand contusion." X-rays taken after the game came back negative, and Arcia could be in the lineup as soon as Sunday.

Arcia was 0-for-2 at the plate with a strikeout before leaving Saturday's game.
