    After I had identified a few, I saw and recognized the shade of him who made, through cowardice, the great refusal.

    Loving it. One of the most advanced bats & all around players in the league.

    Is he now the youngest position player in AAA? Youngest player period?

    Wait, the Braves also promoted Austin Riley? I wouldn't say he was all that deserving of a promotion.

    Maybe not but he has over a 1K AB's in the lower levels. Time to challenge the kid to see if he can adjust.

    A bet you can't find another teenage prospect at the AA level or higher who has a .300+ avg with double digit home runs & double digit stolen bases.

    Of course he has 96 k's. He's a 19 year old who has been facing far more advanced & seasoned pitching. If he continues to rake at AAA and gets a September call-up he may just be the #1 prospect next year

    Yeah but he just turned 20 so he still has time to learn to adjust before having to prove himself at AA/AAA.

    Thoughts on Acuna's bump to Gwinnett? Do the Braves see Andruw 2.0 in him?

    I think they're rushing him. He's a hell of a prospect, but I don't get the urgency here, and I'd like to see him struggle at a level and then have to stay there long enough to make adjustments at the plate, since he's not very patient or selective.

    Didn't take long for Acuna to hit his 1st HR in AAA

    Base autos of Acuna have reached $170 which currently makes him the crown jewel of the 2017 Bowman class.

    I literally have NO IDEA why people pay that much, when you can get them for under $2 a pop here.

    The uniform discrepancy clearly makes this a valuable error card.
