Reports: Brewers trade SS Orlando Arcia to Braves

The Atlanta Braves acquired shortstop Orlando Arcia from the Milwaukee Braves on Tuesday, multiple outlets reported.

MLB Network said the Brewers received two pitchers in exchange, but they were not immediately identified.

Arcia is a career .244 hitter with 42 homers, 39 stolen bases and 180 RBIs in 542 games with the Brewers since 2016.

The 26-year-old veteran is 1-for-11 with one RBI and three strikeouts in four games this season.

He will provide defensive depth for Atlanta behind shortstop Dansby Swanson and second baseman Ozzie Albies. Utility infielder Ehire Adrianza was placed on the injured list on Saturday for personal reasons; he became a U.S. citizen on Monday.
