  • Orlando Arcia Will Be Opening Day Shortstop

    Atlanta Braves infielder Orlando Arcia will be the team's Opening Day shortstop after the team sent both Vaughn Grissom and Braden Shewmake to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday. Ehire Adrianza will serve as a utility infielder. Arcia hasn't really stood out on offense in spring training, but the Braves would like both Grissom and Shewmake to get some more minor-league seasoning before they make their debuts in 2023. The 28-year-old Arcia is much more trustworthy on defense, so he'll get the nod to open the regular season. In 67 games with Atlanta last year, Arcia slashed .244/.316/.416 with a .733 OPS, nine homers, 30 RBI and 25 runs scored in 234 plate appearances. He's merely keeping the job warm for either Grissom or Shewmake at some point in 2023.

  • Orlando Arcia Could Start At SS; Vaughn Grissom In Minors?

    MLB.com's Mark Bowman suggests there's a chance that Atlanta Braves middle infielder Vaughn Grissom will begin the 2023 season in an everyday role with Triple-A Gwinnett if the Braves decide to use Orlando Arcia as the starting shortstop to begin the year. Arcia ranked among the middle of the pack in terms of outs above average as the Milwaukee Brewers' starting shortstop from 2017-20. Grissom has incredible work ethic, but he may not be fully ready for the starting gig just yet after making his major-league debut for Atlanta in 2022. The 22-year-old's defense at the 6 is somewhat in question, so he could use a bit more seasoning on the farm with his glove. But make no mistake, Grissom is the superior offensive weapon in the long term for Atlanta.
