Brewers option Arcia to Triple-A, recall RHP Wilkerson
Orlando Arcia will once again work on his hitting in Triple-A.
The Milwaukee Brewers sent the shortstop to Colorado Springs on Saturday and recalled pitcher Aaron Wilkerson. Arcia had been farmed out to Triple-A on May 25 but was summoned back five days later after Tyler Saladino landed on the disabled list.
A defensive stalwart, Arcia hit .203 with no extra-base hits in 66 plate appearances upon his return and owns a slash line this season of .197/.231/.251. Including his time at Colorado Springs, Arcia hasn’t recorded an extra-base hit since May 18.
Wilkerson has pitched in eight games for Colorado Springs with seven starts, owning a 2.08 ERA. He appeared in three games for the Brewers in 2017, with two starts, allowing four runs on six hits with one walk and seven strikeouts in 10 1/3 innings.
