Twins sparkplug Luis Arraez rises to top of batting race

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Just a few months into Luis Arraez's major league career, Cleveland manager Terry Francona marveled at the hitting machine division rival Minnesota was integrating into the lineup and predicted he would one day win a batting title.

Three years later, Arraez is halfway there.

"Can't put money on it, but I wish I could've," Francona said last week before the first of eight matchups between the AL Central front-runners in a 10-day span. "I don't know if every year he'll hit .360, but you get your confidence, you get your legs under you, you feel good. You could see he had that ability. You could see it right away just the way he stood in the batter's box."
