Braves uber prospect Ronald Acuna is set to transform the following big factor in baseball — but it surely has to be performed the Braves means.

Despite being ranked among baseball’s most sensible prospects, Acuna, 20, is receiving an perspective adjustment from the Braves and previous outfielder Andruw Jones, who’s been performing as Acuna’s mentor this spring coaching.

Jones, a 5-time All-Megastar, knows what Acuna should be expecting. But in step with Jones and the Braves, Acuna’s attitude — or in point of fact the best way how he wears his hat — is a troubling check in the young celebrity’s development.

In Step With MLB.com’s Mark Bowman, the Braves “want Acuna to put on his hat directly and take care of a certified appearance at the same time as in uniform.”

Jones thinks the Braves are right to strip Acuna of that playfulness and individuality.

“You’ve got to be cocky to play this recreation,” Jones stated via MLB.com. “You’ve were given to be assured in your self to head out and show you belong there. You don’t need to sit down within the nook and positioned your head down whenever. You wish to stand in the market and display you belong in that league at that time.

“Cocky is an excellent thing. However respecting the sport may be crucial.”

Acuna posted a .344/.393/.548 diminish line with 9 home runs in only FIFTY FOUR games as a 19-yr-antique in Triple-A Last 12 months. As cited by way of NBC Sports Activities, the Braves’ handling of Acuna might be interpreted as the group creating a narrative about adulthood to keep him within the minors to extend his arbitration and unfastened agency.
