He spent the 2015 season with the Biloxi Shuckers of the Class AA Southern League. In July, he played in the 2015 All-Star Futures Game. After hitting .307/.347/.453 with eight home runs, Arcia was named the Brewers Minor League Player of the Year for 2015. The Brewers added him to their 40-man roster after the season. He also spent 2014 and 2015 playing for the Caribes de Anzoategui of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League, a winter league held during MLB's offseason.

He was recalled on July 26 and rebounded to finish the season hitting .236/.268/.307 with 3 homers and 30 RBIs, including two walk-off singles. In game 3 of the NLDS against the Rockies, he homered off of Wade Davis to extend the Brewers' lead in their eventual series-clinching 6-0 victory. In Game 2 of the NLCS, he homered off of Hyun-jin Ryu to start the scoring, but the Brewers would lose that game to Los Angeles 4-3.

In 2019 he batted .223/.283/.350 with 15 home runs, and 59 RBIs. After the season, the Brewers acquired shortstop Luis Urías and had Arcia and Urías platoon at shortstop in 2020. He appeared in 59 games in 2020, batting .260/.317/.416 with 5 home runs and 20 RBI in 173 at-bats.

Atlanta Braves

On April 6, 2021, the Brewers traded Arcia to the Atlanta Braves for Patrick Weigel and Chad Sobotka. The Braves assigned Arcia to the Triple-A Gwinnett Stripers. On July 3, Arcia was recalled from Gwinnett. He and Sean Newcomb were optioned to Gwinnett on July 31, 2021, as trade acquisitions Jorge Soler and Richard Rodríguez joined the team. When rosters expanded in September 2021, Arcia rejoined the Atlanta Braves. In 2021 in the majors, between the two teams he batted .198/.258/.309 with 2 home runs and 14 RBIs in 81 at bats. The Braves finished with an 88–73 record, clinching the NL East, and eventually won the 2021 World Series, giving the Braves their first title since 1995.

On November 30, 2021, Arcia and the Braves agreed to a two-year contract worth $3 million. Following an injury to Ozzie Albies, Arcia became the Braves' starting second baseman. During a game against the Boston Red Sox on August 9, Arcia injured his hamstring while running the bases.

In spring training in 2023, Arcia competed against Vaughn Grissom and Braden Shewmake for the starting shortstop job. Though Grissom entered the spring as the favorite, Arcia won the position on the strength of his glove; Grissom and Shewmake were optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on March 20. On Opening Day, Arcia and the Braves agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $7.3 million. The contract also included a team option for the 2026 season for $2 million, or a $1 million buyout. Arcia was hit by a pitch from Hunter Greene on April 12, and remained on the injured list through May 6. At the midseason, Arcia for the first time was named a starting shortstop for the National League in the 2023 Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
