Player Outlook
Seemingly everyone in the fantasy community wanted Vaughn Grissom to open the season as Atlanta's starting shortstop. Manager Brian Snitker had other ideas, though, as Grissom was sent back to the minors and Orlando Arcia was signed to a three-year contract extension and named the starter at short. It wound up looking like the right call, as Arcia posted career highs with a .741 OPS and 17 home runs while solidifying the team's defense at short. The 29-year-old put up a 1.006 OPS with eight homers in 112 plate appearances against lefties versus just a .674 OPS against righties. Arcia hasn't had drastic splits like that before, though, so it's difficult to know what, if anything, to take away from it. He'll bat toward the bottom of the lineup and won't help in stolen bases, but it's a good lineup to be in and Arcia could show enough pop again in 2024 to be mixed-league relevant.

    Arcia went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Monday's loss to the Mets.
