The #1 recruit in baseball (#1 - Keith Law; #2 MLB.com) is set to make his debut with the Braves today in Cincinnati.
Acuna will become the youngest player to appear in an MLB game this season...for good reason, just check out his 2017 Minor League Numbers: (Combined Class A - Triple A)
.325 Batting Average
21 Home Runs
44 Stolen Bases
Not too shabby.
Oh yeah, his spring training numbers were decent too...
.432 Batting Average, 4 Home Runs & 4 Stolen Bases in 16 games.
Since Acuna recently declined a $30M offer from the Braves, delaying his call up pushed back his free agency eligibility to 2024.
Acuna will be joining teammate Ozzie Albies, giving the Braves the two youngest players in the MLB.
Bright future ahead, Braves fans.
