MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Atlanta Braves Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

As we are now mere days away from Opening Day, the Braves’ squad looks ready to go, as the pitching and hitting had good days in the split squad games Saturday. Ronald Acuna definitely stole the show, however, speeding around the bases and driving the ball hard and far. A return to his pre-torn ACL form from Ronald would be a huge boon to the Braves’ offense and to their World Series aspirations as he can be the most electrifying and productive players on the planet when he is on the top of his game.
