Remember when you were worried about Ronald Acuña Jr.? Certainly, he doesn’t.
On Sunday, the Braves played a doubleheader in Philadelphia. With the Braves reeling from injury, the young latin superstar provided the steady hand, including three home runs on the day and a nightcap in which he went 4 for 4 with a pair of dingers. One of those came off highly touted Philadelphia Phillies pitching prospect Spencer Howard.
Therefore, here’s Acuña’s day in home runs:
Now here’s his full second game of knocking the ball all over Citizen’s Bank ballpark.
It’s a firm reminder of the fact that the Braves are still the class of the dogfight division in the National league. Moreover, Acuña is still the best player under 25 in the game of baseball, and that’s not going to change anytime soon.
He can take on all comers, including Juan Soto, Yordan Alvarez, and Luis Robert among others. Ronny Sauce is still the young player that all others should continue to be measured by. If he gets hot, you might be looking at the NL MVP.
Just listen to the sound of the ball off his lumber. It simply sounds different, one of the perks of a completely empty ballpark.
