Player Outlook
Seemingly everyone in the fantasy community wanted Vaughn Grissom to open the season as Atlanta's starting shortstop. Manager Brian Snitker had other ideas, though, as Grissom was sent back to the minors and Orlando Arcia was signed to a three-year contract extension and named the starter at short. It wound up looking like the right call, as Arcia posted career highs with a .741 OPS and 17 home runs while solidifying the team's defense at short. The 29-year-old put up a 1.006 OPS with eight homers in 112 plate appearances against lefties versus just a .674 OPS against righties. Arcia hasn't had drastic splits like that before, though, so it's difficult to know what, if anything, to take away from it. He'll bat toward the bottom of the lineup and won't help in stolen bases, but it's a good lineup to be in and Arcia could show enough pop again in 2024 to be mixed-league relevant.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Ends power drought

    Arcia went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Friday's 6-1 win over the Padres. Arcia ended a couple of lengthy droughts, as he had gone 29 games since his last multi-hit effort and his last homer. During the slump, the shortstop hit just .147 with four doubles and two RBI. He started the season well, but he's now at a .212/.246/.338 slash line with seven homers, 25 RBI, 27 runs scored, 18 doubles and no stolen bases over 88 contests. Arcia hasn't been challenged for his spot in the lineup, but that's mostly a testament to his reliable defense.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: IL stint not ruled out

    Arcia is still not eating solid food after having an abscessed tooth pulled, and Atlanta might wind up placing him on the injured list, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The shortstop is fighting an infection he developed before the tooth was extracted. "All he's getting in him right now, is kind of the [protein] shakes and soup and things like that," manager Brian Snitker said Thursday. "So we were hoping we could maybe get him over here today and move around a little bit. We'll get him out here [Friday]." Arcia hasn't played since June 30 and slashed just .155/.217/.238 through 92 plate appearances last month. While Atlanta remains optimistic he could return to the lineup in short order, per MLB.com his availability for this weekend's series against the Phillies is in doubt.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Out for Game 1 of twin bill

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Could miss multiple days

    Arcia (head) got checked out at a local hospital Tuesday after continuing to feel unwell Monday night, and while tests came back negative, the shortstop could be sidelined for multiple days, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "We'll probably give him two or three days," manager Brian Snitker said prior to Tuesday's game in St. Louis being rained out. Arcia left Monday's 4-3 loss to St. Louis due to dizziness that was initially attributed to dehydration, although no official diagnosis has been announced. Atlanta is set to play a doubleheader Wednesday against the Cardinals following the rainout, but Arcia could end up sitting for the entire twin bill if he's still not feeling 100 percent. Zack Short will handle shortstop duties until he's ready to return, and Luke Williams was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday to provide depth at the position.

  • Braves' Orlando Arcia: Likely sitting Tuesday

"I don't know. I know they gave him fluids, so we'll probably put him down tomorrow and let him regroup and see where he's at." Zack Short would be the obvious choice for a start at shortstop Tuesday in Arcia's place.
