Luisangel Acuna 2B Mets

Recommended Posts

No thread for little brother Acuna yet.  Homered in his first AAA game yesterday. Has a bit of pop and some good speed.  Stole 57 bases last year. An injury away.  Should be up at some point this year. These are the Mets we are talking about here.

4-5, 4 RBI, 2 runs and a walk last night.   He has multi hit games in 4 of the last 5.  Struggled in March and April,  but been really good in May and June.  22 SB's on the year,  stole over 40 in each of the three years before.  McNeil stinks, Acuna could get the call even before the trade deadline if he keeps this up.

Batting average on the year is sitting at .259 and OBP is at .313,  SB's are 22 but he has 9 CS to go along with only 3 HR's.   Might not be much of an upgrade over McNeil who has lost playing time to Iglesias already.

Yeah March and April skew the batting average and OBP. Been much better the last two months.  The CS are a concern for sure.

Lack of HR's is also concerning if his OBP is only .313 as he needs to be on base to be anything more than a rotation piece.  Picking it up a bit lately but I'm starting to waver on his potential being all that high.

McNeil stinks as a player and as a human. That said, it's still the Mets so logic goes out the window.

Yeah didn't say he was the perfect player or anything.  But he's improving as the year goes on.  Career .281/.361/.410 with big SB potential out of the MI spot is not too shabby.  It's his first season in AAA and he's only 22.
