The Twins 21-year old outfielder will be competing for the World Team.

Anyone looking to catch one of the Twins top prospects can do so on July 8 at Kauffman Stadium when 21-year old outfielder Oswaldo Arcia will be competing for the World Team in the MLB Futures Game.

Arcia just made the jump to Double-A New Britain. Before that he was hitting .309 with seven home runs and 31 RBI in 211 at-bats for Class A Fort Myers. He has registered just eight at-bats in Double-A.

His minor league career was put on hold last season when he missed 2011 because of elbow surgery. According to MLB.com, he is ranked as the No. 4 prospect in the organization.

The game can be seen on MLB.TV and ESPN 2 on July 8 at 4 p.m. CT.
