Top 10 Prospects to Watch for the 2016 Season

5. Orlando Arcia, SS – Milwaukee Brewers

Just like the Reds mentioned previously, the Brewers are clearly going nowhere fast in the vaunted NL Central. With the three best teams in the entire league residing in the NL Central last year, the Brewers are well off from being able to compete with those teams. With that being said, the Brewers have no shortage of interesting talent that should play a role at the big league level. The most interesting of all has been a long time coming.

Orlando Arcia has been surrounded by quite a bit of hype ever since he signed with the Brewers out of Venezuela in 2010. It’s been a long time coming for Arcia, but he appears to finally be nearing the big-league level. Arcia spent the entire 2015 season in Double-A, slashing .307/.347/.453 in 129 games played. Arcia also played his usual stellar defense and showed why he is the top rated prospect in the Brewers entire minor league system. Arcia most likely will start the year in Triple-A, but there is little doubt he will be playing with the Brewers at some point next season. The Brewers won’t be anywhere near playoff contention, but Arcia will provide a lot for a team in the midst of a rebuild.
