Top Orlando Arcia News

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Arcia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets.

    Arcia was held out of the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader and will be on the bench again Sunday. Ehire Adrianza will work at the keystone during the series finale in New York.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Pops seventh homer

    Arcia went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Phillies.

    The 28-year-old utility player gave Atlanta a 1-0 lead by taking Zack Wheeler deep in the fifth inning, but it was all the offense the home team could muster on the afternoon. Arcia has started five straight games at second base and homered in the last two, giving him seven long balls on the year in 178 plate appearances to go with a .247/.320/.411 slash line, and he'll continue to hold down the fort at the keystone until Ozzie Albies (foot) makes his return.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Blasts homer in win

    Arcia went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 13-1 win over the Phillies.

    Arcia's sixth home run of the season came in the fifth inning, when he took reliever Corey Knebel deep with two outs and a runner on base. With Atlanta cutting bait on the Robinson Cano experiment and not adding further reinforcement in the middle infield other than utility man Ehire Adrianza ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline, Arcia looks poised to serve as the team's everyday second baseman until Ozzie Albies (foot) is ready to return from the injured list later in the season. Arcia will pick up his fifth consecutive start in Wednesday's series finale and will bat eighth.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Starting again Sunday

    Arcia is starting at second base and batting eighth Sunday versus Arizona.

    It's the third consecutive start for Arcia, and the second straight to come against a right-handed pitcher with Merrill Kelly on the mound Sunday for Arizona. Robinson Cano has the platoon advantage but has a .377 OPS through nine games with Atlanta, so it appears Arcia is back as the primary option at the keystone.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Sticking in bench role

    Arcia is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

    Arcia recently completed a three-game starting streak while Atlanta faced off against a trio of lefty pitchers, but he'll be on the bench for the second straight game while Philadelphia bring another righty (Kyle Gibson) to the bump. The 27-year-old looks as though he'll occupy the short side of a platoon at second base with the lefty-hitting Robinson Cano for the foreseeable future.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Swats fifth homer

    Arcia went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday's 8-1 win over the Angels.

    Robinson Cano got the start at second base but was lifted early due to dizziness, so Arcia wound up seeing a full night's worth of playing time. The 27-year-old utility player took advantage in the seventh inning by crushing a first-pitch slider from a fading Shohei Ohtani to left field for his fifth homer of the year, breaking open what was a 3-0 game. He hasn't seen much action since Cano was added to the roster, but if the latter winds up missing more time, Arcia would take over as the starter at the keystone in the short term.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Pops fourth homer

    Arcia went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 8-4 win over the Nationals.

    With southpaw Patrick Corbin on the mound for the Nats, Arcia got the start at second base while hitting eighth and took advantage of the matchup. The 27-year-old infielder is slashing .256/.329/.388 with four homers, 13 runs and 18 RBI in 146 plate appearances, and for now he'll handle the short side of a platoon alongside Robinson Cano until Ozzie Albies (foot) is ready to return.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Not starting Monday

    Arcia is not in the starting lineup for Monday's contest against the Mets.

    Arcia will head to the bench Monday as Robinson Cano will make his debut with the team and take over the starting spot a second base. The 27-year-old is expected to shift into more of a platoon role after the addition of Cano, making his absence from the lineup Monday something that could be common moving forward.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Likely to fade into platoon role

    Arcia is expected to move into a short-side platoon role with Atlanta on track to promote Robinson Cano from Triple-A Gwinnett prior to Monday's game against the Mets, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    When Ozzie Albies fractured his foot June 13 and underwent surgery two days later, Arcia was installed as the team's everyday second baseman. After generating seven hits in his first three starts in place of Albies, Arcia has proceeded to hit .145/.232/.145 over his subsequent 18 games. Atlanta apparently prefers to keep Arcia's top backup at second base, Phil Gosselin, in a utility role, so the lefty-hitting Cano looks as though he'll get a look as the primary option at the keystone as the team aims to extract more production from that position. Arcia, meanwhile, should replace Cano in the lineup versus left-handed pitching and will likely represent Atlanta's top pinch-running option off the bench on days he doesn't start.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Sits in second straight game

    Arcia is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

    Phil Gosselin will pick up a second straight start at second base in place of Arcia, whose ongoing slump may have prompted manager Brian Snitker to go in a different direction. Before sitting out Monday's 6-3 win, Arcia had gone 2-for-28 with 10 strikeouts over his last eight contests.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Not in Monday's lineup

    Arcia isn't starting Monday against the Cardinals.

    Arcia started in the last four games and went 1-for-13 with three RBI, two walks and six strikeouts. Phil Gosselin will take his place at the keystone and bat eighth Monday.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Takes seat Wednesday

    Arcia is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Philadelphia.

    Phil Gosselin will check in at the keystone for Arcia, who has taken over as a full-time starter at the position since Ozzie Albies fractured his foot June 13. Arcia had started in each of Atlanta's last eight games, going 5-for-30 with two runs and an RBI during that stretch.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Sits in series finale

    Arcia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.

    Arcia will head to the bench after starting each of the past four games at the keystone while going 7-for-16 with two home runs, a double, a walk, four RBI and three runs. Phil Gosselin will get the nod at second base in his 2022 debut with Atlanta, but Arcia looks poised to handle a full-time role at the position while Ozzie Albies (foot) is likely sidelined for at least two months.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Belts third homer

    Arcia went 4-for-4 with a walk, a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Nationals.

    Making his second straight start at the keystone in place of Ozzie Albies (foot), Arcia homered as part of a multi-hit performance for the second straight day, giving him three long balls on the season in 19 contests. The infielder won't keep up that pace, but the last time he held down a regular role in the majors in 2020, the 27-year-old slashed .260/.317/.416 over 59 games for the Brewers with five home runs and 20 RBI.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Expected to replace Albies

    Arcia is expected to step in as Atlanta's primary second baseman after Ozzie Albies (foot) was placed on the 60-day injured list Tuesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    In a corresponding move, Atlanta selected the contract of Phil Gosselin from Triple-A Gwinnett to replace Albies on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster, but Gosselin is expected to step into the utility role that Arcia has handled for much of the season. In order to hold off Gosselin and other potential call-ups or trade acquisitions from playing time at the keystone, however, Arcia may need to demonstrate more dependability at the plate than he showed in 2021, when he produced a career-worst .567 OPS in 89 plate appearances between stops with Milwaukee and Atlanta. He's performed far better in sporadic playing time this season, slashing .313/.393/.458 in 56 plate appearances. Arcia is likely to occupy a spot near the bottom of the batting order while he fills in for Albies.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Joins Thursday's lineup

    Arcia was added to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies.

    For a second straight game, Arcia is a late addition to Atlanta's lineup. He'll start in left field and bat eighth after Marcell Ozuna (abdomen) was removed from Thursday's lineup. Arcia went 2-for-3 with two doubles, a run, an RBI and a walk in Wednesday's win over Philadelphia.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Added to Wednesday's lineup

    Arcia was added to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

    Arcia hasn't appeared in any of the last seven games, but he'll serve as the designated hitter and bat eighth Wednesday after Ronald Acuna (quadriceps) was scratched. Over four games since the start of May, Arcia has gone 5-for-12 with a homer, two runs, two RBI and five strikeouts.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Walk-off homer in three-hit effort

    Arcia went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and an additional run scored during Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Red Sox.

    Arcia started rallies in the third and seventh with singles, but he only came around to score once. However, in the bottom of the ninth with the score tied 3-3 and Ozzie Albies on first base, Arcia ripped two-run homer to left field for his first long ball of the season. The backup middle infielder has appeared in just two games since April 24, but he's 4-for-5 during those contests.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Remains out of lineup

    Arcia isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Arcia has gone 0-for-7 with three walks and two strikeouts in his last three appearances, and he's losing out on regular playing time since he'll take a seat for the third time in the last four games. Marcell Ozuna will start in left field while Alex Dickerson serves as the designated hitter.
