MVP Wins Award! Acuña Jr., ‘Achieving 40-100-70’ Acuña Jr. Slacks Home Run-Free 0.233 This Season


Ronald Acuña Jr. (27, Venezuela) of the Atlanta Braves, who was named the MVP of the National League in the U.S. Major League Baseball last year, is struggling early this season. He is showing an unexpectedly sluggish performance. He has yet to report a season-long home run.

Acuña Jr. showed his best performance last season. He flew so fast throughout the season that the word “monster” was not an exaggeration. He played in 159 games, and had 217 hits. He recorded a batting average of 0.337 with 41 home runs, 106 RBIs and 73 steals, a slugging percentage of 0.416 with an on-base percentage of 0.596 with an OPS of 1.012. He garnered more than 40 home runs, more than 100 RBIs and 70 stolen bases, and won the National League MVP award.

However, his performance in the early days of this season fell far short of that of last season. He had only 10 hits in 11 games, and failed to hit a home run. He has a batting average of 0.233, four RBIs and four steals, a on-base percentage of 0.353, and a slugging percentage of 0.279 and an OPS of 0.632. All of his offensive performances have plummeted incomparably compared to last year.

He got off to a good start to the season. In an away game against the Philadelphia Phillies on March 29 (local time), he got off to a fresh start, recording two hits, one walk, one RBI and one run from four times at bat. The next day, he met the Philadelphia Phillies again, and posted two hits and two runs from five times at bat. 고수익알바 However, he faltered in April, and has completely fallen out of the market. He had only six hits in eight games in April. He has six hits in 31 times at bat and a 0.194 batting average. 

In particular, the missing long hit is notable. He only recorded two doubles in 11 games this season. He has no triple or home run. His slugging percentage plummeted to around .200 (0.258). He became one of the best hitters last season and joined the 40-70 club (more than 40 homers and 70 steals) but is having a hard time due to inaccurate hitting and poor slugging early this season.

In the game against the New York Mets on the 11th, he was silent with no hits in four times at bat, and failed to make a turnaround. Of course, there are enough chances to make up for it as there are only 11 games left. Some say that he has not yet recovered his normal condition due to a knee injury suffered during the exhibition game. Indeed, it remains to be seen when last year’s MVP Acuña Jr. will be activated properly.
