Hit his 2nd HR and is soon to qualify for the batting title.  He's not quite first yet, but he's top 5 and gaining.

Arraez went 3-for-4 with two triples, a double, three RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 8-7 win over Cleveland.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Arraez showed off some speed Friday with the pair of triples. He's gone 13-for-35 (.371) with three triples and two doubles in 10 games since he returned from a shoulder injury.

I was watching the final few frames of that game.  Colome had thrown way more pitches than he was accustomed to. The Twins announcers even commented how he had reached 47 pitches, which was like three of his regular innings. He was fatigued and missed spots the entire inning.  Not to put this entirely on the defense, which was putrid, but Baldelli should have had another pitcher in there. It shouldn't have mattered that his top bullpen guys had already been to the mound. He needed a fresh arm in the game to close it out. Colome had nothing left and was overthrowing to touch 94-95.

To say that "Minnesota's infield defense fell apart in the bottom half of the frame" (Rotowire in the Buxton thread) is to put it very mildly.

Blankenhorn, playing second because Arraez had moved to third to replace Donaldson, who gave way to a pinch-runner as the runner on second at the top of the tenth, bobbled a routine grounder with the bases loaded, the Twins up by two, on what should have been the last out.

Only one run scored while Blankenhorn took a number of stabs at the ball that lay at his feet.

So, the bases loaded, the Twins still up by one.

Colome who had blown the save in the bottom of the ninth and loaded the bases in the tenth, still looked like he'd get the win when he got another routine grounder, this one to Arraez at third.

His throw to first was so high and wide of the mark the first baseman had no chance of flagging it down.

The throw is so bad the A's in the dugout start running out on the field in celebration while it's in mid flight.

In the Patton formulas, do four singles = one HR?

It depends!

In Bill James' runs created formula, do four singles = one HR?

Luis Arraez (2B) MIN - Mar. 22

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=766375

Arraez could share the leadoff role against right-handed pitchers with Max Kepler this season, manager Rocco Baldelli told MLB.com.  Arraez hit leadoff Sunday and went 2-for-3 with a walk and double. He's hitting .300 (9-for-30) this spring.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Arraez will move to a utility role this season with the Twins signing Andrelton Simmons to play shortstop and moving Jorge Polanco to second base. However, he's expected to get near everyday duty as starters are rested regularly. The Twins may not have a set lineup as manager Rocco Baldelli likes to play matchups each game, but it sounds like Arraez will be in the leadoff mix.

I think Polanco should be more worried than Arraez.

"Comparisons are odious," Peter writes in the Rotoman Special, and then points out some serious comps with Tony Gwynn.

That was before...

Luis Arraez (2B) MIN - Jan. 26

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=762535

Arraez is expected to move to a utility role following the signing of Andrelton Simmons on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Simmons is joining Minnesota on a one-year, $10.5 million deal, which will push Jorge Polanco (ankle) over to second base. Arraez has primarily played at the keystone since making his big-league debut in 2019, but he's also seen time at third base, shortstop and left field. The 23-year-old has an .819 OPS through his first 124 major-league contests, and the Twins should still find significant at-bats for him, regardless of where he plays in the field.
