For this edition of the eCoach breakdown we decided to highlight one of the brightest young stars in the game, Ronald Acuña Jr. He made his debut with the Atlanta Braves on April 25th this year as the youngest player in the league at 20 years old. He immediately made an impact and was one of the driving forces behind the Braves’ remarkable run to the postseason. His incredible gifts combined with his zeal for the game made him must-see TV around the league.
His power (26 HR) and speed (16 SB) from the lead off spot could ignite the Atlanta offense at any time, and he carried his knack for the splash play into the postseason, where he became the youngest player in MLB history
to hit a grand slam in the playoffs. His memorable first year was capped off with the NL Rookie of the Year Award. Like all young hitters he still
has things he can learn, but his ability to drive pitches in all parts of the zone makes him a nightmare to pitch to. So with that in mind we wanted to take a peek at his movements so we can learn how this dude is able to
cover so many pitches!
