Atlanta Braves shortstop Orlando Arcia caught up with the media on Tuesday and discussed the timetable of his return. Arcia told translator Franco Garcia that he expects to begin playing when the Braves return from their road trip next week. He did not specify if he aimed to be on a rehab assignment or simply activated. He says he will leave that decision to skipper Brian Snitker.

Arcia has been out since April 12th after suffering a micro-fracture in his left wrist as a result of a hit by pitch. He was originally placed on the 10-day injured list. Arcia now faces a possible May 5th return, which would come just three weeks after his initial injury.
