Scouting Patrick Weigel, new pitching prospect for the Milwaukee Brewers

Patrick Weigel is one half of the pair of right-handed pitcher that the Brewers got in return in the Orlando Arcia trade with Atlanta, announced on Tuesday.

Arcia has been a fan favorite for his relative roster longevity, acrobatic defensive, dugout presence, ability to get on base or drive in a run in critical moments, love for snacks, and fun and joy on the baseball field.

Arcia hasn’t become the offensive presence the Brewers hoped he’d grow into, and his defense fared far better in an eye test than a Statcast profile.
