NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (WTNH) -- The Minnesota Twins outfield of the future includes three Rock Cats players.
Aaron Hicks, Oswaldo Arcia and Joe Benson are prized possessions of the Minnesota Twins.
"I guess we're all good in our own aspects," Hicks said.
"But you're the best of the bunch," News 8's John Pierson asked Arcia.
"Yeah," he replied laughing.
"I mean he is a little cocky, but ya know," Hicks said.
"Yeah that might have been a little more of the language barrier," said Benson.
"Yeah, I think. I don't know who the best is," Hicks said.
The trio are the top prospects who all play the outfield. It's a good problem for Rock Cats manager Jeff Smith to have.
"I think one thing I like about all three of them is they take in knowledge, take things we work on them with and they can apply it to the game very fast," he said.
The three are bonded by their position in the field and in the organization.
Arcia is the one turning the most heads these days.
"I feel good," he said. "My swing, good. My running, everything good."
"He's a tough hitter," Smith said. "Hes worked hard on his outfield play and his base running. He's a fun prospect to watch."
Arcia is the youngest of the bunch at just 21. Hicks and Benson aren't much older.
So far, Benson is the only one who has spent time in the big leagues.
"It's always motivation because when you get a taste you know what its like and you want it back," he said.
Benson can do it all, but staying healthy has been his downfall.
Hicks has all the tools too, speed and power.
The trio may not be together for long, but united eventually.
"We have an outstanding outfield," Hicks said. "Good hitters, so it could possibly be the outfield of the Minnesota Twins."
