    Acuna is overrated. He's going to K at like 25% with less power than the hype expects, and the SB won't be there.

    Iím actually a little surprised the Braves made this move now. Hes hit better over the last 7 days but you would think they would wait until he had some sustained success. I guess they have some pressure to put some asses in the seats. And the fan base was pissed he didnít make the opening day roster.

    Why not he's been killing it for years now, killed the AFL(MVP), killed it in ST, had a 2 week slump to start the year, kid's ready.

    Another excellent start for 21 yr old Michael Kopech in AAA.

    Through 4 starts, 21 IP, 7 BB, 29 K, 2.14 ERA

    Next Verlander, J4L19!

    Like, a 25% K rate is his current projection lol. If he can do that at 20 years old I think the Braves will feel pretty good about themselves.

    What convergence of circumstances see Vladdy with the Jays prior to September?

    Can he simply hit his way on to the roster and force the hand of the FO?

    No, not really.... They don't NEED him on this team right now. If Donaldson is done for the season, then maybe Vladdy shows up. But that's about the only reason where they NEED him

    too early to bring the kid up anyway.... he could very well struggle against MLB pitching. let him get his MiLB seasoning and reduce the risk of having to send him back down after bringing him up. cup of coffee in Sept, sure

    Been said about many prospects, and turned out to be wrong.

    Jays are not going to bring up a franchise player unless they are sure he is ready. It would be good to see how Vladdy fares against AAA pitchers. AA pitchers don't necessarily have a multi pitch arsenal, command, or quality secondaries. A lot of AAA pitchers do.
