FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE FALLOUT: OSWALDO ARCIA KICKS OFF TRADING SEASON

While the August 1st trade deadline is still more than a month away, it is no unusual for some trades to begin coming together as early as late June.  On that front, the Minnesota Twins unloaded struggling power hitting outfielder Oswaldo Arcia and gave him a fresh start by moving him to the Tampa Bay Rays.  While Arcia was lauded for very good power coming up the Minnesota system, his big troubles with contact and strikeouts sent him down to the minors in 2015 and stunted his progress.  Arcia began 2016 in the minors as well as the Twins seemed to be signaling their giving up on the guy.  Making that point clear is the fact the Twins dealt him to the Rays for a player to be named later.  Toting an ugly .240 career average with the Twins, Arcia has more than a little proving to do to show he can be a major league contributor.  Be that as it may, Arcia is only 25 and home runs are always a previous commodity.  He also is going to the right place as Tampa Bay has salvaged some stalled careers along the way.  There is no actionable move to make in fantasy baseball but in AL-only formats you can watch the progress.
