Brevard County Manatees shortstop Orlando Arcia was named as the Florida State League’s Player of the Week on Monday for the recent week of June 23rd-29th.

Arcia hit .485 (16-for-33) over the last week, including a 5-for-5 performance against Lakeland on June 24th and back-to-back three hit games against Clearwater on June 27th and 28th.

Arcia has multi-hit games in five of his last seven contests, including six doubles, a triple and a pair of home runs.

For the season, the 19-year-old Venezuelan is batting .286 with 28 extra-base hits and has scored 39 runs while knocking in 36 through 76 games for the Manatees.

The Manatees were off on Monday, but return to the diamond on Tuesday when they begin a series with the Daytona Cubs.
