Brewers demote Arcia, trade with Yankees for new catcher

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers have optioned slumping shortstop Orlando Arcia to Triple-A Colorado Springs and acquired backup catcher Erik Kratz from the New York Yankees as part of a series of moves.

The Brewers will send a player to be named or cash to the Yankees for Kratz, who was hitting .269 with four homers in Triple-A. Kratz will back up starter Manny Pina after Jett Bandy was designated for assignment.

The moves were announced before Friday's game against the New York Mets.

The slick-fielding Arcia was hitting .194. Considered one of the franchise's top young players, the 23-year-old Arcia was having trouble at the plate after hitting .277 with 15 homers in 2017.

Eric Sogard was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. He figures to share time at shortstop with the recently acquired Tyler Saladino, who is hitting .400 in 11 games.

The Brewers also optioned right-handed reliever Jorge Lopez to Triple-A and recalled righty Adrian Houser from Double-A Biloxi.
