Player Profile: Orlando Arcia

I have one card of Orlando Arcia, from 2014 Bowman Chrome Prospects.

Playing career: Shortstop Orlando Arcia was sixteen years old when he began his career in the Brewers organization, and at age 22 has become their shortstop of the future. 2015 was his breakout season, as he hit .307 with 8 HR, 69 RBI and 25 SB at AA Biloxi.

My memories: I posted this card when I got it from a street pack recently, saw it quickly and thought it was Oswaldo Arcia, thinking he must have been in the Brewers organization at some point. Then Brewers blogger Tony L. commented that this was a great card to get. Until then I didn’t realize that Oswaldo had a younger and probably more talented brother.

Where he is now: He made his major league debut in 2016, hitting .219 with 4 HR and 17 RBI in 55 games.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Orlando A, between Orlando Airport, referring to Orlando International Airport, and Orlando Anderson, a suspect in the Tupac Shakur murder.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Shawn Armstrong.
