Braves' Orlando Arcia: Bound for new club's alt site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves optioned Arcia to their alternate site after acquiring him from Milwaukee on Tuesday.

Atlanta sent back a pair of right-handed relievers in Patrick Weigel and Chad Sobotka in exchange for Arcia, who shouldn't be in store for a lengthy stint at the alternate site. Once the team has a chance to evaluate him more closely in simulated games, Arcia could join the big club and serve as a utility infielder.

Braves' Orlando Arcia: Shipped to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Atlanta acquired Arcia from the Brewers on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Milwaukee's return in the deal isn't yet known, but Arcia had become an expendable piece for the club with manager Craig Counsell having committed to Travis Shaw and Luis Urias as the Brewers' everyday third baseman and shortstop, respectively. Atlanta's left side of the infield is similarly settled with Austin Riley and Dansby Swanson in the fold, so Arcia looks on track to serve as the team's top utility man ahead of Ehire Adrianza (COVID-19 injured list) and Johan Camargo. Arcia posted a career-high .733 OPS and boasts some speed on the basepaths, but he's unlikely to see enough regular at-bats in 2021 to emerge as a useful fantasy asset unless there's one of Riley, Swanson or Ozzie Albies sustains a long-term injury. The 26-year-old will have to clear COVID-19 intake testing before he's eligible to join Atlanta's 26-man active roster.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Will split time at short, third
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia will split time at third base with Travis Shaw and at shortstop with Luis Urias this season, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The exact hierarchy among the trio remains unclear, but it looks as though all three could split time fairly equally. Shaw is the lone lefty in the group, so it's likely Arcia and Urias will both start against southpaws while alternating days off against right-handers.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Could see time at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia will work at third base "a substantial amount" during spring training, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Arcia is most likely to see playing time at shortstop this season, but Luis Arcia should also get increased reps at the position during spring training. As a result, manager Craig Counsell said that the team will move Orlando around during camp, and he could see plenty of time at the hot corner. The 26-year-old slashed .260/.317/.416 with five home runs and 20 RBI over 59 games in 2020.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Gets $2 million from Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract with the Brewers on Wednesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

This will be the 26-year-old shortstop's sixth season with the Brewers and penultimate year under team control. He hit .260/.317/.416 with five home runs and two steals in 189 plate appearances last season. His 96 wRC+, .156 ISO and 16.9 percent strikeout rate were all career bests. Despite all that, he had to take a $200,000 pay cut on this contract to avoid being non-tendered.

Arcia went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's Game 1 loss to the Dodgers.

Arcia provided the Brewers' only runs of the opening game of the best-of-three NL Wild Card Series. He should start at shortstop again in Game 2 against lefty Clayton Kershaw.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Swats fifth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during a 9-1 loss to the Cardinals in the second game of Friday's doubleheader.

After going 0-for-3 with an RBI in the matinee, Arcia ruined Daniel Ponce de Leon's no-hit bid with his sixth-inning blast in the nightcap. The shortstop is slashing .241/.298/.386 with five homers, two steals, 20 RBI and 20 runs over 57 games.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Plates four in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia went 2-for-3 with a homer, four RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 9-5 win over the Royals.

Arcia drew a bases-loaded walk in the fourth inning to force in the Brewers' second run of the contest. He also scored the go-ahead run on Jacob Nottingham's grand slam two at-bats later. Arcia went deep himself for a three-run blast in the fifth. The shortstop has four homers, 16 RBI, 18 runs scored and a pair of stolen bases while slashing .250/.318/.386 in 49 games this year.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Sitting nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is set for a rare day off, playing in 44 of Milwaukee's 45 games so far this season. Luis Urias gets the nod at shortstop and will bat seventh.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Joins hit parade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia went 4-for-6 with a double and three runs in Wednesday's victory over the Tigers.

Arcia joined the Brewers' hit parade Wednesday, accounting for four of the 21 hits the club banged out. Of the 29 hits Arcia has recorded this season, 10 have come in three games, but that doesn't change the fact he hitting .257 and owns a .328 OBP -- a mark that tops the number he finished with in each of his four other seasons in the big leagues.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Slugs third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday against Cleveland.

Arcia took Nick Wittgren deep in the eighth inning to tie the game at three. It was his third home run of the season, though he has just three additional extra-base hits in 111 plate appearances. Despite his relative lack of production at the plate, Arcia has continued to get the majority of starts at shortstop for the Brewers.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia isn't in the lineup Monday against the Pirates.

Arcia went hitless in four at-bats Sunday, and he'll retreat to the bench for the series finale against Pittsburgh. Luis Urias will shift to shortstop with Keston Hiura starting at second base.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Connects on second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run Saturday in the Brewers' 7-6 win over the Pirates.

Arcia took Pirates reliever Chris Stratton deep in the seventh inning for his second home run of the season and his first since Aug. 16. Though Luis Urias' return from the COVID-19 injured list earlier this month looked like it might have threatened Arcia's standing as the everyday shortstop, manager Craig Counsell has been able to find room for both players in the regular lineup. Urias has instead seen most of his action at second base and third base.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Not in Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia isn't in the lineup Tuesday against the Twins.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Big day at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia went 3-for-4 with a home run, triple, two RBI and three runs scored Sunday against the Cubs.

Arcia played a big role in the team's win against the Cubs, with his biggest contribution coming on a two-run home run in the fifth inning. It was his first home run of the year and he now has only four extra-base hits on the season. While still getting regular playing time, the return of Luis Urias has left Arcia out of the starting lineup twice in the team's past six contests.

Brewers' Orlando Arcia: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arcia is out of the lineup Friday against the Cubs.

The 26-year-old went 1-for-2 with a walk during Thursday's loss but will return to the bench for Friday's contest. Arcia has started 13 of 18 games at shortstop this season, but the return of Luis Urias from the injured list earlier this week may lead to more of a rotation at shortstop.
