  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Wins starting shortstop job

    Arcia is in line to open the season as Atlanta's starting shortstop, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Barring an addition at the position via trade in the days leading up to Opening Day, Arcia has won the shortstop gig over Vaughn Grissom and Braden Shewmake, both of whom were optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday. Arcia received the appointment atop the depth chart despite mediocre results at the plate in Grapefruit League play (.247/.367/.360 slash line over 30 plate appearances), but he impressed with his glove. Shewmake and Grissom both have a great chance of taking the job from Arcia if the 28-year-old struggles once the season gets underway.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Headed for backup role

    One of Vaughn Grissom or Braden Shewmake is expected to open the season as Atlanta's starting shortstop, Mark Bowman of reports, which would leave Arcia in a bench role.

    The veteran infielder began the spring competing with Grissom for the job, but Shewmake's strong defense this spring has pushed him into the mix. Arcia could still see significant playing time this season if whichever youngster begins the season as the starter struggles, but it would likely take injuries or poor performance from both to push him to the top of the depth chart. Arcia slashed .244/.316/.416 in 68 games for Atlanta last season.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Sitting Game 3

    Arcia is not in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the NLDS versus the Phillies on Friday.

    Arcia will take a seat after he went 0-for-5 with two walks and a strikeout while starting the first two games of the NLDS. Vaughn Grissom will draw the start at second base and bat eighth against the Phillies on Friday.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Overtakes Grissom on depth chart

    Arcia will start at second base and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Nationals, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Arcia appears to have taken over as Atlanta's primary option at the keystone, as he'll stick in the lineup against a right-handed pitcher for the third game in a row while slumping rookie Vaughn Grissom remains on the bench. After slugging home runs in both of the first two games in Washington, Arcia should continue to see steady run while he's wielding a hot bat.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Back from injured list

    Arcia (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    The 28-year-old has been sidelined by the hamstring strain since Aug. 9 but has been cleared to rejoin Atlanta after a four-game rehab assignment. Arcia should fill a utility role with Vaughn Grissom now operating as the primary second baseman.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Rehab assignment begins Saturday

    Arcia (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.

    Arcia has been on the injured list since Aug. 10, and the club has been targeting a September return. The 28-year-old's rehab assignment should be the final step in his recovery process, but he'll likely need to appear in several minor-league games prior to rejoining the big-league club. If he feels good following his rehab games, he'll likely be in the mix to return from the injured list sometime next week.
