While the Atlanta Braves await their National League Division Series opponent, Ronald Acuña Jr. brought home a couple of awards. First up, he was named National League Player of the Month after a monstrous September. He managed a .340 average with eleven home runs and eleven stolen bases.

Up next, Acuña was named Baseball Digest’s eBay player of the year.

Acuña has been named NL Player of the Month three times this year, so instead, he and the Braves will turn their attention to a first-place ring from the Fall Classic.
