KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Twins were playing short-handed Tuesday night against the Royals while outfielder Oswaldo Arcia spent time with his family following the birth of his baby boy.

Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said Arcia declined to take paternity leave. He planned to spend the day with his boy before catching a flight to Kansas City for Wednesday’s game.

In other news, Antony said that catcher Joe Mauer swung in the batting cages and did a series of drills while recovering from a strained right oblique. Mauer plans to hit live batting practice in the cage on Wednesday before the Twins decide on his next step.

Right-hander Ricky Nolasco, recovering from a sore elbow, also came out of a bullpen session feeling good. He plans to throw another one Thursday.
