Ronald Acuña Jr. News
The Atlanta Braves are not considering trading right fielder Ronald Acuna Jr. or any other young player they have signed to an extension. The Braves don't award no-trade clauses to players as part of their policy, but a player that signs an extension does it with implicit understanding that he won't be traded. Atlanta is also unlikely to sign a free-agent shortstop other than Dansby Swanson. President of baseball operations Alex Anthopoulos mentioned Orlando Arcia and Vaughn Grissom as internal options if the team can't re-sign Swanson. Acuna, still only 24, made his third All-Star team in 2022 despite dealing with nagging injuries throughout the season. He finished with a .266/.351/.413 slash line, 15 home runs, 50 RBI, 71 runs scored and 29 stolen bases in 119 games.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (elbow) doesn't have any structural damage to his right elbow after he was hit by a pitch in the Game 2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League Division Series on Wednesday. Acuna was in some pain but managed to stay in the game and went 1-for-3 with a run scored and a strikeout in the 3-0 shutout victory. With a day off on Thursday to rest up, Acuna should be back in right field and in the leadoff spot for Game 3 of the series on Friday against Philadelphia. The 24-year-old superstar outfielder is now 4-for-7 with a double, two walks and two runs scored in the first two games of the series, which is knotted at 1-1 heading to Philadelphia for the weekend.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. is getting the day off on Wednesday against the Miami Marlins in the regular season finale after the Braves clinched the National League East title on Tuesday night. After winning the division, the Braves will get a first-round bye and won't play again until next week for the start of the NL Division Series. Acuna dealt with various injuries in 2022 and played in 119 games, but he still managed to pick up his third All-Star nod and finishes the regular season with a .266/.351/.413 slash line to go with 15 home runs, 50 RBI, 71 runs and 29 stolen bases in 467 at-bats. Robbie Grossman will start in right field on Wednesday and hit seventh against Marlins right-hander Elieser Hernandez.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. looks poised for another strong season atop the National League East club's lineup. The 24-year-old appeared in 119 games for Atlanta last year, hitting .266 with a .351 on-base percentage, 15 home runs, and 29 stolen bases in 533 plate appearances. Of those 533 plate appearances, 528 of them came as Atlanta's leadoff hitter. Acuna Jr. should continue to thrive in that role, especially after a 2022 season in which he finished in the 92nd percentile or better league-wide in hard-hit rate, xSLG, and xwOBA. Given how productive he was on the basepaths this past season, it wouldn't be a total shock if the former Rookie of the Year approached his 2019 metrics with a full season's worth of plate appearances in 2023. During the 2019 season, Acuna hit 41 home runs and stole 37 bases. He has as good of a shot as anyone of finishing as fantasy's top player not named Shohei Ohtani in 2023.
