Orlando Arcia Named FSL Player of the Week
VIERA, Fla. - The Florida State League announced on Monday that Brevard County Manatees shortstop Orlando Arcia was named the league's player of the week for the period of June 23-29.
In seven games last week, Arcia hit .485 (16-for-33) with two home runs, a Florida State League-leading 13 runs batted in and scored eight runs. He also doubled six times, tripled and stole a base.
Arcia recorded five multi-hit games during the week and fell one hit shy of the cycle three times. On June 25, he set a career-high in hits with a 5-for-5 performance against the Lakeland Flying Tigers. Arcia also tied a career-high with five runs batted in and was a home run away from the cycle. On June 27 and 28 in Clearwater, he went a combined 6-for-11 and fell a triple shy of the cycle both nights. In the latter game, Arcia hit a game-tying, two-run home run with two outs in the top of the ninth inning en route to a 12-inning, 6-4 Manatees victory.
Arcia was signed by the Milwaukee Brewers as a non-drafted free agent on October 22, 2010 from Anaco, Venezuela.
