Acuna Finally Arrives With Much Hype, But That Doesn’t Mean “No Worries” (What Type Of Production To Expect)

Late last night the news broke that the Braves were set to recall Ronald Acuna, the consensus top prospect in baseball.  It’s a surprise that it took this long, to an extent, though a slow start at Triple-A was part of the reason (maybe you want to attribute that to the disappointment of not making the MLB roster out of Spring Training).  As it is, even after putting up a .300 average over his past 10 games you can argue that the numbers are relatively unimpressive:

.232 (16-69), 1 HR, 2 RBI, 9 R, 4 SB

He hadn’t struck out in three straight games, but he leaves Triple-A with 2 K in his final game and a complete lack of extra base hits (1 double, 1 HR).  That has to make you wonder, exactly what can we expect from him upon reaching the Majors
