Arcia went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Sunday's game against the Cubs. Arcia launched his first home run of the spring in the fourth inning, bringing the Brewers within one run after Chicago jumped out to a 5-0 lead. He's seen plenty of time in the leadoff role so far in camp, but he slotted into the No. 6 spot in the order Sunday, which is closer to where he'll sit during the regular season.
Arcia went 1-for-3 while hitting leadoff in Thursday's spring game. Arcia has hit leadoff three times in his six appearances this spring, but manager Craig Counsell is likely just letting him get his feet wet in that spot, as Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich will almost certainly occupy the top two spots in the batting order when the regular season gets underway. While that will push Arcia to the bottom third of the batting order, he figures to play regularly at shortstop out of the gate.
Arcia is not in the lineup Saturday against the Tigers. Arcia heads to the bench for the second time in four games, with Hernan Perez again starting at shortstop. Arcia's bat has been heating up lately as he's hitting .316 with six doubles in his last 12 games.
Arcia is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Cardinals. Arcia will head to the bench after starting the last five games and slashing .176/.222/.235 over those contests. Hernan Perez will step into the lineup at shortstop in place of Arcia, hitting fifth.
Arcia is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Reds. Arcia will hit the bench after starting the last three games at shortstop, going 2-for-8 with a pair of doubles and an RBI over that stretch. Jonathan Schoop will cover shortstop in his absence.
