The bat of Ronald Acuña Jr. (25, Atlanta Braves), who showed relatively poor performance after returning from injury last year, is exploding from the beginning of the season.

Acuña Junior recorded a batting average of 0.353, 2 homers, 4 RBIs, 4 runs, 6 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.450 OPS of 1.215 in 4 games of the season until the 4th (hereinafter Korean time).

It is too early to say whether the team will make up for last year’s sluggishness as it is still in the very early stages of the season, having not even played 5 games. But what is clear is that the current condition is very good.

Acuña Jr. hit his first home run on the 2nd after recording 온라인카지노two hits in the opening game on the 31st of last month. He also got no hits in the third, but got two walks.

Then, in an away game against the St. Louis Cardinals on the 4th, he went 4 at-bats, 3 hits, 3 RBIs, 2 runs, and 1 walk, including his second home run of the season.

What is encouraging is that the number of strikeouts has decreased. Acuna Jr. struck out 126 while walking 53 last year. However, he has 3 walks and -2 strikeouts as of this season.

After receiving the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2018, Acuña Junior, who is in his 6th year in the major leagues, was selected as a strong MVP candidate until the middle of the 2021 season.

However, Acuña Jr. suffered a major injury called a rupture of the cruciate ligament in his knee during defense in July of that year, and returned only at the end of April last year.

After his injury return, he had a batting average of .266 with 15 home runs, an on-base percentage of .351 and an OPS of .764 in 119 games. He was far from the results expected of Acuna Junior.

However, Acuña Junior seems to have completely shaken off the aftereffects of his injury this season. A healthy Acuna Junior is a very strong MVP candidate.
