Is Ronald Acuña Baseball’s Next Top Prospect?

The Braves have been extremely aggressive with him as we’ve seen him go from rookie ball to AAA in just 206 games. As the competition has gotten stiffer he has become more impressive as he’s gone from a 31% K% in A+ ball with a .191 ISO to an 18.8% K%, 12.1% BB% and .228 ISO in AAA. Through 24 games in AAA the 19 year old is hitting .348/.434/.576 (1.010 OPS) which, if he qualified (2.7PA/game), would put him tops in the International League.
