Braves prospect Ronald Acuna named Arizona Fall League MVP

Atlanta Braves prospect Ronald Acuna earned the Joe Black Most Valuable Player Award for the Arizona Fall League after slashing .325/.414/.639 with seven home runs in 23 games.

At 19 years old, Acuna is the youngest player in AFL history to take home the honor. The outfielder will turn 20 in December.

Acuna continues to improve his stock, as he has the best odds in Dan Szymborski'sInsider ZiPS projections to become the 2018 National League Rookie of the Year.

In 139 games across three levels of competition in 2017, Acuna slashed .325/.374/.522 with 21 homers, 82 RBIs and 44 stolen bases.
