Arcia, who is already on the Twins' 40-man roster, appears to be on the verge of being MLB-ready. Between High-A Fort Myers and Double-A New Britain, the 21-year-old hit .320/.388/.539 with 61 extra-base hits and 98 RBIs.
The Twins invited Arcia to major-league camp in spring training earlier this year, where he impressed with his incredible strength to all fields. The team discussed the possibility of calling him up in September, but ultimately decided against it due mostly to what would have been a lack of playing time.
Hermsen, 22, was a sixth-round pick by the Twins in 2008. In 162 2/3 innings between High-A Fort Myers and Double-A New Britain, Hermsen posted a 2.88 ERA with 87 strikeouts, 30 walks, 13 home runs and 161 hits allowed.
Dozier, 25, hit just .234/.271/.332 with 15 errors at shortstop in 84 games. He also hit .232/.286/.337 for Triple-A Rochester.
Hendriks, 23, finally picked up his first major league win after 17 failed attempts.
