Acuna went 3-for-3 with a double, triple and two RBI in Wednesday's spring game against the Nationals. Acuna has not been retired over the last three games, going 8-for-8 with two home runs, two doubles, one triple, four runs and six RBI. The 21-year-old recorded only two hits over his first nine spring games but has since caught fire at the plate and appears fully ready to kick off his sophomore campaign.
Acuna went 3-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, two runs scored and two RBI in Tuesday's spring game against the Cardinals. Acuna got off to a slow start in spring training with only two hits through the first nine games, but is 5-for-5 with two home runs, four runs and four RBI in the past two games. The 21-year-old earned Rookie of the Year honors in 2018 with a .293/.366/.552 slash line, 26 home runs, 64 RBI and 16 stolen bases in 111 games.
Acuna went 2-for-2 with a walk, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates. He took Nick Kingham deep in the first inning for his second homer of the spring. Acuna now has a .273/.385/.545 slash line through 26 plate appearances, and the 21-year-old continues to fly off draft boards as fantasy GMs salivate over his five-category upside in what will be his first full big-league campaign.
Acuna went 0-for-2 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers. The 21-year-old is widely expected to blossom into a superstar this season, but he has yet to catch fire this spring, posting a .200/.304/.350 slash line and a 3:9 BB:K through nine games with one homer and one steal. Acuna's upside is too massive, and his performance as a rookie too good, to put much weight on a handful of March plate appearances, but fantasy GMs investing heavily in him for 2019 would certainly be reassured if he can string together some hits before the end of camp.
Acuna went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros. Hitting cleanup, the 21-year-old socked his first homer of the spring. Acuna could well hit earlier in the order than fourth in the regular season, but wherever he gets slotted he figures to be a key part of the Braves' offense after slashing .293/.366/.552 in his dazzling 2018 debut.
