Atlanta Braves phenom outfielder Ronald Acuña made his major league debut on Wednesday after controversially starting the year in the minor leagues. He went 1/5 in his debut, and on Thursday, Acuña made his presence known in Cincinnati with a ridiculous upper deck home run off of Homer Bailey, which landed in the fourth or fifth row at Great American Ballpark.
The stats on Acuña’s homer really got Braves fans excited – a 416 foot bomb with a 106 mph exit velocity.

Acuña was baseball’s top prospect (or #2, depending on whether or not you considered Shohei Ohtani a prospect) heading into 2018, and delivering such a majestic dinger in his second career game is only going to make Braves fans more optimistic and excited about his future.
