Braves' Ronald Acuna: Pulled for lack of hustle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 1-for-2 with a base hit before being pulled from Sunday's game against the Dodgers in the top of the fifth inning after making a couple of baserunning gaffes in the bottom of the third inning, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Though Acuna reached on a single in his final plate appearance of the day, he denied himself of a potential double when he was slow to get out of the batter's box while watching the ball travel through the air. He then compounded matters by getting thrown out on a steal attempt, with manager Brian Snitker pulling him from the game early as a result. While Acuna's removal spells a disappointing end to his day, fantasy managers are likely just happy that the superstar outfielder isn't dealing with any sort of injury.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Another hot August night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 1-for-4 with a walk, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Thursday's loss to the Mets.

He not only hit a homer of his own, Acuna robbed J.D. Davis of one with a leaping grab over the left-field wall in the sixth inning. The 21-year-old now has an incredible 10 home runs through 14 games in August to go with a .355/.403/.871 slash line, three steals, 19 runs and 19 RBI.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Launches 34th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Mets.

The 21-year-old continues to crush the ball in August, slashing .370/.414/.907 with nine homers in 12 games on the month. Acuna has 28 stolen bases and the power surge has him up to 34 home runs and 81 RBI. He's the first player in the NL this season to reach 100 runs this season.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Keeps slugging Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

After seeing his 10-game hitting and four-game homer streaks snapped the day before, Acuna wasted no time in getting back into a groove. The wunderkind now has 33 home runs and 28 stolen bases through 119 contests to go with a dazzling .298/.378/.538 slash line, and with two more steals this season he'll join Mike Trout as the only players in MLB history with a 30-30 campaign prior to their 22nd birthday.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Goes deep for fourth straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 3-for-5 with two home runs and four RBI in Friday's 8-4 win over the Marlins.

The 21-year-old superstar remains dialed in, extending his hitting streak to 10 games and his homer streak to four games with another outstanding performance. Acuna now has 32 homers and 26 steals on the season to go with a .298/.377/.535 slash line.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Hits 30th homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Marlins.

Acuna gifted the Braves with their only run of the night by hitting a 402-foot solo homer in the eighth inning. The speedy 21-year-old has now homered in three consecutive games while extending his hitting streak to nine. Overall this season, Acuna has tallied 30 home runs, 94 runs scored, 75 RBI and 26 stolen bases while slashing .295/.375/.522.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Swats 29th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Twins.

The 21-year-old has now hit safely in eight straight games, slashing .342/.375/.737 over that stretch with four homers, two steals, 10 RBI and 10 runs. As expected, Acuna has emerged this season as a dominant fantasy asset, but he seems to be finding another gear as Atlanta tries to stave off the competition in the NL East.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Multi-category monster in Minny
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 3-for-5 with a walk, a home run, four runs scored, two RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 12-7 win over the Twins.

The 21-year-old set the tone for the evening by taking Jose Berrios deep on the first pitch he saw, his sixth leadoff homer of the year and the 14th of his young career. Acuna now sports an .889 OPS on the season with 28 home runs, 26 steals, 72 RBI and 92 runs through 114 games.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Hammers 27th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in a 6-4 loss against the Reds on Sunday.

The 21-year-old tied the game with his long ball during the ninth, but the Braves lost in extra innings. While his average has dropped over the last week, Acuna does have an extra-base hit in four of the last five games. He's batting .289 with 27 home runs, 70 RBI, 87 runs and 25 stolen bases in 456 at-bats this season.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Mashes 26th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Reds.

The 21-year-old now has 26 homers and 66 RBI, power numbers basically identical to his performance last season, but the big difference in Acuna's sophomore campaign has been his prowess on the basepaths. Over his last 20 games, he's swiped 12 bags in 15 attempts, giving Acuna 25 steals on the year. If he keeps up that pace, he could produce baseball's first 40/40 season since Alfonso Soriano in 2006.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: In Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna (neck) will start Monday against the Nationals.

Acuna left Sunday's contest against the Phillies with a stiff neck after a collision at second base during a stolen-base attempt, but he downplayed the issue after the game. His optimism was apparently accurate, as he'll lead off and play center field Monday.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Removed with stiff neck
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna exited Sunday's game at Philadelphia with neck stiffness, but he downplayed the injury after the game and said he plans to be in the lineup Monday, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Acuna collided with Phillies shortstop Jean Segura (knee) on a stolen-base attempt, eventually causing both players to leave the contest. The 21-year-old finished the inning following the stolen base but did not return for the bottom of the frame. Charlie Culberson entered the game in right field in his place. The fact Acuna is already looking ahead is a good sign, though the team will intervene if he's not deemed ready by medical staff.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Crushes 25th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored, and three RBI in a 15-7 win at Philadelphia on Saturday.

Acuna extended Atlanta's lead to 4-0 during the fourth inning with his 447-foot blast, setting the tone for the Braves' offense all game. The 21-year-old is 12-for-28 with two home runs and nine RBI in his last seven contests.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Registers 61st RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-4 with a walk, three RBI, a stolen base and two runs scored Friday against the Phillies.

Acuna knocked in a pair during the fifth inning on a single to right field, and he recorded his third RBI of the contest in the sixth with a bases-loaded walk. The 21-year-old continues to put together another stellar season, hitting .294 with 24 homers, 61 RBI and 23 stolen bases through 103 games.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Extends on-base streak to 27
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's victory over Washington.

Acuna drilled a 425-foot homer to left field to plate the final two runs of the game in the eighth inning. In addition to the home run, he also walked and singled to extend his on-base streak to 27 games, the longest active run in the majors. The 21-year-old All-Star is one of the most impressive all-around forces in baseball, compiling a .295/.378/.510 slash line along with 24 homers, 58 runs batted in and 21 steals in 461 plate appearances this season.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Two more steals in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two stolen bases in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Nationals.

Atlanta went 5-for-5 as a team on the basepaths against Nats catcher Kurt Suzuki -- even Nick Markakis got in on the action -- but it was Acuna who once again led the way from the top of the order. The 21-year-old now has a five-game steals streak going and is 8-for-9 over his last seven games, a pace more like something out of the go-go 1980s than the current era. There's no telling how long Acuna might keep this up, but the surge has moved him to within two stolen bases of Christian Yelich's 23 for the NL lead.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Continues to run wild
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Friday's 4-3 win over the Nationals.

He scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning, drawing a walk and eventually coming around on Josh Donaldson's walkoff single. Acuna is taking his duties as Atlanta's leadoff hitter seriously by ramping up his activity level on the basepaths -- he's stolen six bases in the last six games to give him a career-high 19 on the year.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Swipes two bags in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 1-for-4 with two stolen bases in Tuesday's 13-1 loss to the Brewers.

The 21-year-old is now 16-for-19 on the basepaths this season, matching his steals total from last year in 16 fewer games and two fewer attempts. Acuna is already an elite five-category fantasy asset, but his most productive days should still be ahead.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Swipes 14th base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's victory over San Diego.

Acuna singled and stole second in the sixth inning, then scored on Freddie Freeman's home run after singling again in the eighth. The 21-year-old All-Star has established himself as one of the most well-rounded hitters in baseball, slashing .291/.373/.512 with 23 homers, 55 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 375 at-bats this season.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Goes yard in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 1-for-6 with a solo home run in Saturday's 7-5 extra-inning win over the Padres.

Acuna didn't have a great night at the dish, but his seventh-inning homer tied the back-and-forth game. The leadoff man is hitting .289/.372/.514 with 23 homers, 55 RBI and 70 runs scored in 92 games this season. He's also swiped 13 bases. The center fielder is striking out in 24.3 percent of his plate appearances, but his five-category contributions have been more than enough to compensate for the frequent whiffs.
