The Unfortunate end of Oswaldo Arica

All good things must come to a end. Oswaldo Arcia has been demoted back down to AAA today, after the one-hitter thrown by Anaibal Sanchez. During his a little over a months stay in the Major leagues, he hit .263 an OPS. Of .372 (4th best on the team might i add) along with 4 home runs and 14 RBIs. Much better then any other Twins rookie or second year player.
Yet he gets demoted back down to the minors only because the Twins are in desperate need of pitching. In which P.J. Walters will take his spot on the 25-man roster and will start sometime this weekend.
In my personal opinion Arica is deserving of a spot on the Major League roster. Obviously out performing players such as Dozier, Parmelee, Hicks and Florimon. Respectively I do understand that Arcia is a outfielder and some of the players mentioned above are infielders, I am simply making a statement for Arica to stay in the majors while suggesting to have Florimon demoted in order to bring Arcia back up and have Escobar take him over at short.
In summery, Arica should not only get back to the Majors soon but should stay there as well. Because if the past can tell us anything he will destroy AAA as he did in AA and high A. Leaving the Twins no choice but to promote him once again, in hopes of getting back to .500.
