Jonathan Paul "J. P." Arencibia is a Cuban-American professional baseball catcher for the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball. He previously played parts of five seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers.

Arencibia attended the University of Tennessee, and played college baseball for the Tennessee Volunteers. He won the USA Baseball Richard W. "Dick" Case Player of the Year Award in 2006. Prior to the 2007 draft, questions were raised about Arencibia's defensive abilities as a catcher. After drafting him, however, the Blue Jays decided to keep him as a catcher, rather than convert him to another position, such as first base.

Arencibia was drafted 21st overall by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft. He was assigned to Toronto's Low A ball affiliate, the Auburn Doubledays of the New York–Penn League. Arencibia struggled during the early part of the season but hit well during the stretch and into the playoffs, helping the Doubledays win the NY-Penn League championship. He began the 2008 season with the Dunedin Blue Jays of the Florida State League. By the FSL all-star break, he led the league or was near the top in many offensive categories, finishing the first half of the season batting .315 with 13 homers, 22 doubles and 62 RBI. He was named as the starting catcher for the Eastern Division in the FSL All-Star Game.

He started in his first major league game for the Toronto Blue Jays on August 7, 2010 against the Tampa Bay Rays. In his first at-bat, Arencibia hit a two-run home run on the first pitch from James Shields, becoming the 28th player in history to hit a home run on his first major league pitch. In his following plate appearances, he hit a double, a single and then a solo home run and received a curtain call from the fans at the Rogers Centre while finishing the game just a triple shy of hitting for the cycle.
