Orlando Arcia’s Career Numbers
Arcia is coming off of a career season in 2020. He hit .260 last year, with five home runs. He also had a career high OPS of .734 and OPS+ of 96. While Arcia has struggled from spring training to now, the Brewers were giving him more opportunities to play outside of his natural position at shortstop. Arcia has started two games at third base this season and one at shortstop. He has seven total assists, one putout, and no errors through the start of the season. The postseason, though, is where Arcia shined. He posts a career .295 average in the playoffs with four home runs (three of those coming against the Dodgers). Arcia has never been a terrific fielder, with a career .973 fielding percentage.
The return for the 26-year-old Arcia is unknown as of now. We will keep you updated as news continues to break.
