4/6/21: Traded IF Orlando Arcia to the Atlanta Braves for RHP Chad Sobotka and RHP Patrick Weigel, and optioned Sobotka and Weigel to the ATS. Purchased the contract of RHP Brad Boxberger from the ATS. To make room on the 40-man, transferred RHP Justin Topa from the 10-day IL to the 60-day IL. 40-man roster full.
The Brewers only faced right-handed starters in their first four games, and Arcia started three of the four, one at short and two at third, with the club even sitting Travis Shaw twice. The club has tried to force Luis Urias into the shortstop job ever since the Trent Grisham trade, and now they’ve gone all the way with it.
