Braves fans couldn’t sleep last night in anticipation of today’s lineup release, featuring #1 prospect Ronald Acuna. Acuna had a monster 2017 campaign in which he rose from Single A to AAA by the end of the year. Ronald had a huge spring, which left Braves fans disappointed when he was sent to the minors, as he went on to hit a blistering .432 with four homers and four stolen bases in only 16 games.
Acuna started off slow in AAA this year but has hit .320 with a .370 OBP in the past seven days.
Here’s what twitter is saying about him:
The #Braves lost tonight but shall never lose again, for Ronald Acuna has been summoned to the big leagues. Let the pigeons loose!

Today is the big day !
Braves fans’ lunch time treat will be the announcement that Ronald Acuña has been promoted to the Major League roster and will start in left field tonight vs the Reds.
Let the festivities begin.
