Minnesota Twins OFs Alex Presley, Aaron Hicks and Darin Mastroianni are all competing for the starting center field job this spring. Manager Ron Gardenhire liked what he saw from Presley during his month-long audition at the end of last year. The team would like to see him be more aggressive on the bases this year, though, after stealing just one base in his 28 games. Presley has 20 stolen bases in 232 career games. He knows his success on the bases will probably have a direct effect on whether he wins the job, which is why he worked with Paul Molitor this spring. The Twins could use him in the leadoff spot, too.

The Minnesota Twins optioned SP Scott Diamond and OF Aaron Hicks to Triple-A Rochester Thursday, Aug. 1. OF Oswaldo Arcia was recalled in a corresponding move.

The Minnesota Twins placed OF Josh Willingham (knee) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 2, and activated OF Aaron Hicks (hamstring) from the 15-day DL in a corresponding move. Willingham is dealing with a medial meniscus tear and bone bruise in his left knee, and the move is retroactive to July 1.
Fantasy Tip: This is bad news for Willingham owners hoping that he might be dealt at the non-waiver trade deadline to a contending team. This ensures that Clete Thomas will continue to see regular playing time to solidify his value in AL leagues.

Minnesota Twins OF Aaron Hicks (hamstring) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain. The Twins plan to recall Oswaldo Arcia to replace Hicks.
Fantasy Tip: Arcia should be a near everyday player and warrant a deep-mixed pickup as a result.

Minnesota Twins OF Darin Mastroianni (ankle) didn't feel "comfortable" when he tested his ankle by doing light sprints, according to assistant general manager Rob Antony.
Fantasy Tip: The outfielder was diagnosed last month with a stress reaction in his left ankle and is now past his original three-week timetable without making significant progress. It sounds like it'll be awhile before he's an option for fantasy owners. Minnesota will likely continue to give OF Aaron Hicks plenty of opportunities to learn from his mistakes.
