Oswaldo Arcia, a 21-year old rookie, hit the first home run of the season by a Twins designated hitter in Minnesota’s afternoon win over Miami yesterday at Target Field in game one of the doubleheader. Monday’s game at Target Field was postponed due to cold weather and expected snow and required the Twins and Marlins to play a doubleheader. It ended up snowing about 3 inches on Monday evening and through out the night. Additional info on the snow removal during the night to prepare the ballpark for play can be found here. That leaves Detroit as the only American League team without a home run by a designated hitter this season. Over the last 10 years, the only other player to hit a home run for the Twins before turning 22 is Joe Mauer (7 times). Source: Elias
