Ronald Acuna Jr. nearly joined a very elite list of players with a 40-40 season last year, falling just short with 41 homers and 37 stolen bases.. 

Locally we like to put him in the discussion with guys like Christian Yelich, Cody Bellinger, Mike Trout, Mookie Betts, and Bryce Harper. But nationally is he being placed with that group?

That's the question that John Fricke poses and Hugh Douglas answers.

Acuna Jr. currently trails only Mookie Betts for NL MVP Odds, Betts is 5:1 while Acuna is 6:1.

Acuna Jr. currently is holding shorter odds than guys like Yelich, Harper, Bellinger, Soto, and Arenado.

What do you think? Is Ronald Acuna Jr.'s star still rising or has he reached that superstar summit?
