Orlando Arcia has risen up the Brewers’ prospect list in a hurry and is now one of the top young players in baseball. The younger brother of Twins’ outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, Orlando is a much different, and much better player. While his big brother’s game is based off his power, the 21-year-old is much more speed- and contact-oriented. As a matter of fact, he has hardly any power, hitting only eight bombs last season. He did slash .307/.347/.453, though, and swiped 25 bases which is a far better indicator of his talent and potential.
