Cubs' Francisco Arcia: Sent to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs reassigned Arcia to their minor-league camp Saturday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Arcia enjoyed an initial flurry of success upon receiving his first big-league callup in 2018, but ultimately finished with a disappointing .204/.226/.427 slash line across 106 plate appearances with the Angels. After settling for a minor-league deal with the Cubs this winter, Arcia wasn't a serious threat to unseat Victor Caratini for the backup catcher job.

Cubs' Francisco Arcia: Joins Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs earlier in January, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

Arcia's deal presumably includes an invitation to major-league spring training, where he'll have the opportunity to compete for a backup role at catcher. The 29-year-old reached the big leagues for the first time in 2018, slashing .204/.226/.427 across 106 plate appearances with the Angels.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Outrighted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia was outrighted from the 40-man roster Friday.

It comes as a slight surprise that the Angels didn't elect to keep Arcia protected on their 40-man roster after the 29-year-old provided some value for the club this season. In 41 big-league games following his promotion in late July, Arcia hit .204/.226/.427 with six home runs and 23 RBI.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Manager Mike Scioscia has made liberal use of all three of the team's catchers during the final week of the month, with each backstop drawing two starts apiece. Along with Arcia, fellow backstop Jose Briceno will sit out Sunday while Joe Hudson gets the nod behind the dish.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: On bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Athletics, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Arcia, who will sit after going 0-for-4 with a strikeout and an RBI in Friday's win, is slashing .152/.152/.391 across 46 at-bats in September. Jose Briceno will start behind the plate and bat ninth for the Angels.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Takes seat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

Arcia will stick on the bench for a second straight game as Jose Briceno picks up a start behind the dish in his stead. The backstop is hitting .219/.242/.458 with six homers and 22 RBI in 37 games this season.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Situated on bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Arcia will take a seat after starting the last two games behind the dish, going hitless in six at-bats in those starts. Joe Hudson will catch Matt Shoemaker and hit ninth in this one.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Bows out of starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not in Saturday's starting lineup against the Astros, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Arcia will get the day off after starting behind the dish in both of the last two games. Jose Briceno is slated to handle the catching duties and bat ninth with Arcia on the bench.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Goes deep Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against the Athletics.

Arcia had a busy day, smacking his sixth home run of the season while also finding himself on the mound in mop-up duty. Things went better for him with a bat in his hand, though the homer was his first hit in his last 11 at-bats. Arcia remains the primary backstop for the Angels, but provides little besides sporadic power.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Out again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not in the lineup Wednesday against the A's.

Arcia will stick on the bench for a second straight game as manager Mike Scioscia stacks right-handed hitters against southpaw Brett Anderson. Joe Hudson is starting behind the dish and hitting ninth in his stead.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: On bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not in the lineup Tuesday against the A's, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Arcia will give way to Jose Briceno behind the dish after starting three of the past four games. The backstop is slashing just .148/.148/.407 with a pair of homers through nine games in September.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Out of lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not starting Sunday against Seattle, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Arcia finds himself on the bench for the second time in three games. Jose Briceno will again start behind the plate.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Takes seat Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia isn't in Friday's starting nine against the Mariners.

Arcia will get the day off with left-hander Roenis Elias slated to toe the rubber for Seattle. Jose Briceno is penciled into the starting lineup behind the dish and will bat ninth with Arcia on the bench.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Explodes offensively
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia went 3-for-4 with a double, two home runs and four RBI in Wednesday's 8-1 win over the Rangers.

Arcia was held out of the starting lineup for three consecutive games, but he made a strong case for more playing time with his offensive bonanza. The 28-year-old rookie now has five homers in just 75 at-bats, despite never hitting more than five at any level in the minors. While surprising, Arcia's brief power showing in the majors could result in deep-league fantasy value if the club opts to give him a larger role over the final weeks of the season.

September 11, 2018 06:17 PM
Angels' Francisco Arcia: Out of lineup again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers.

Arcia will stick on the bench for a third straight game -- and the fourth time in five games -- as rookie Joe Hudson gets a turn behind the dish. The 28-year-old backstop has just one hit in 17 at-bats this month and is slashing .211/.243/.380 through 26 games this season, so his recent decline in playing time shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Remains on bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not in the lineup Monday against the Rangers, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Arcia will head to the bench for the third time in four games with a southpaw in Mike Minor toeing the rubber for the Rangers. The backstop is hitting just .211/.243/.380 through 26 games this season, so the Angels may look to give other catchers an opportunity to prove themselves down the stretch. Jose Briceno is starting behind the dish Monday.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Sits out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not in the lineup Sunday against the White Sox, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

This is an intriguing development, as a right-handed pitcher is throwing for Chicago. Given Arcia's disappointing .437 OPS over the past 30 games, this could be a sign that the Angels want to test out other catching options down the stretch regardless of the handedness of the opposing pitcher. Jose Briceno will take over behind the plate Sunday, though Joe Hudson and prospect Taylor Ward could also figure into the equation over the rest of the month.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: On bench vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not in the lineup against the White Sox on Friday.

Arcia will take a seat with left-hander Carlos Rodon on the mound for Chicago. In his absence, Jose Briceno will handle the catching duties and bat ninth.

Angels' Francisco Arcia: Out against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not starting Tuesday against left-hander Mike Minor and the Rangers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Arcia and Jose Briceno have been platooning behind the plate since Rene Rivera was dealt to the Braves. With a lefty on the mound for the second straight day, Briceno will get his second straight start.

September 3, 2018 05:21 PM
Angels' Francisco Arcia: Out of lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is not starting Monday against Texas.

Arcia seemed to be in line as the Angels' primary catcher with Rene Rivera dealt to Atlanta, though he's split time with Jose Briceno over the last four games. Briceno will get the call Monday.
