The Milwaukee Brewers made a series of roster moves today. The biggest of which came when they sent shortstop Orlando Arcia to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Arcia has been mired in a season-long offensive slump, hitting .194 with two home runs and 13 RBI. In 139 at bats, Arcia has 34 strikeouts and only seven walks.
The Brewers also sent right-handed pitcher Jorge Lopez to AAA Colorado Springs. They recalled infielder Eric Sogard from Colorado Springs and right-handed pitcher Adrian Houser from AA Biloxi.
The Brewers also made a trade, acquiring minor league catcher Erik Kratz from the New York Yankees for a player to be named or cash. Kratz was hitting .269 in 17 games with AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He had four home runs and six RBI.
To make room for Kratz, the Brewers designated catcher Jett Bandy for assignment.
