We spent the first two days of this week in this space discussing struggling lefty power hitters in Los Angeles Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton and Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Pedro Alvarez. Let's talk about someone playing well for a change. Minnesota Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia finished off a five-run first inning Tuesday with a three-run blast off Cleveland Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer, giving Arcia home runs in three consecutive games, and five out of seven. That certainly qualifies as playing well, and Arcia remains available in more than 96 percent of ESPN standard leagues!
