After starting the spring off slow, Ronald Acuña Jr. has come to life at the plate in Spring Training as the Atlanta Braves phenom is red hot. He has reached base safely in his last nine plate appearances while going 8 for 8.

In Grapefruit League action, Acuña leads the Braves with 12 hits (in 12 games) with three home runs and seven RBI. His slash line is .429/.500/.893.

Mike Bell said that Acuña is a real power hitter.

“Acuña is on one of those torrid stretches. He’s eight for his last eight, and he went 3 for 3 against Corbin who is real major league pitching,” Bell said. “People always ask if he’s a power hitter. Yes, he’s a power hitter, he’s the real deal.”

Carl Dukes talked about Acuña being a legitimate superstar.

“For all those people who thought he’s not as good as we thought he was, he’s the real picture,” Dukes said. “I love what Acuna brings to our club. He’s a legitimate superstar. I love this, I love watching this guy.”
