2018 Fantasy Outlook
After struggling with the bat in his 2016 debut, Arcia made strides in all three slash categories a year ago while serving as the Brewers' regular shortstop. He was one of three shortstops to hit at least .270 with 15 home runs and 14 steals (Elvis Andrus and Francisco Lindor were the others). Unfortunately, his opportunities to pile up runs and RBI were limited with him routinely filling the eighth spot in the Brewers' batting order. As sound as he was at the plate, Arcia also displayed his exceptional defensive skills, particularly his range. Arcia was formerly the Brewers' top prospect, and his first full season in the major leagues did nothing but enhance his status as the team's regular shortstop well into the future. Whether or not he takes the next step as a fantasy asset could largely rest on whether or not he remains buried in the batting order or gets a chance to bat near or at the top. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Arcia is up in the majors for his defense, as his bat remains a major work in progress. He hit just .219/.273/.358 over 55 games in 2016 as he struggled mightily in his first chance against major league pitching. Arcia is rail thin at 6-foot and 165 pounds, and he's unlikely to develop anything more than a marginal power presence. If he's going to provide fantasy value, it will be through his speed. Arcia managed eight stolen bases last year despite his struggles getting on base, so he could reach 20 stolen bases with a full season's worth of playing time, with more possible as he adjusts quicker than expected to major league pitching.
Arcia's slick glove has excited scouts since he signed with the Brewers in 2011 at 16 years old. Last year, at just 20 years old and over four years younger than his average opponent, Arcia tore up Double-A to the tune of a .307/.347/.453 batting line in 552 plate appearances. Arcia mashed 52 extra-base hits, including eight home runs and seven triples, and stole 25 bases. He continues to show great contact skills, as he struck out just 13.2% of the time despite facing advanced arms at Double-A. The Brewers will likely give Arcia another year of seasoning as they let Jean Segura or Jonathan Villar try to stick at shortstop in the majors, but Arcia is charging hard, and another season like last year will put pressure on the Brewers' current disappointing infield crop. Expect him up by mid-2017 at the latest.
Arcia entered last season as one of the Brewers’ better prospects based almost on defense alone, but a big year with the bat and on the bases has solidified him as one of the team’s most promising youngsters. Arcia increased each of his slash stats last season and showed improved power with a career-best 29 doubles. He also was successful on 31 of his 42 stolen base attempts -- all in his age-19 season while playing in the pitcher-friendly Florida State League. Arcia is a few years away from making an impact at the big league level, but his development as an all-around shortstop has earned him a spot at or near the top of the Brewers’ prospect rankings heading into 2015.
