Ronald Acuna called up to Major League Baseball by Braves
Apr 28, 2018, 10:54
Acuna's spring training numbers (.432, four home runs, 11 RBIs) further solidified his status as the top prospect coming into this season other than pitcher-outfielder Shohei Otani of the Los Angeles Angels.
It stands to reason that Acuna will be thrown directly into the mix in left field with the Braves, who managed to jettison Matt Kemp this offseason in order to create an easy path to at-bats for the ballyhooed young slugger. While Braves fans have pinned the hopes of the franchise on Acuna already before he's not even faced a major league pitch, perhaps there should be some realistic look at what to expect from Acuna.

The losing pitcher was Shackelford (0-1), who allowed the tying run to score in the eighth and put two runners on in the ninth. By waiting until now to call up Acuna, the Braves pushed back his timetable for becoming a free agent until 2024.
Acuna, 20, shot up through the minors last year, beginning the year in Single-A and finishing with the Triple-A Gwinnett Braves.
His most recent start against them was April 25, 2014, a 5-4 loss in which he gave up five runs over six innings. Acuna was greeted in the dugout by the traditional silent treatment and walked nearly the entire length of the dugout, exchanging phantom high-fives, before his teammates pounced to celebrate. Cesar Hernandez, Maikel Franco and Drew Hutchison each contributed base hits of their own in the defeat. The Phillies' ace has allowed two or fewer runs in each start this season, and he features a stellar 2.30 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP accompanied with a 2-1 record in 31.1 innings of work.
The Braves batted around in the ninth inning and pushed across four runs to tie the game at 7.
"I just kind of react to the situation", Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman said.
Bailey will oppose Braves left-hander Sean Newcomb (1-1, 3.74 ERA), who will be making his fourth start of the season. Speaking of Newcomb, he gave up all four runs on five hits while walking three and striking out seven, not factoring in the decision. "Tonight (Wednesday) I felt like I had four guys I was going to use".
