Who's Hot/Not - Week 2 - 2021

Ronald Acuña Jr (OF, Atlanta Braves)

Quick Hits:

  • 13/28 (.464)

  • 4 HR, 10 RBI

  • .543 OBP

Analysis: It’s safe to say we’re not shocked at the level that Acuña plays with. He’s rocking at least the 94th percentile in everything Statcast related other than walk percentage where he’s in the 70th percentile at that. He’s on an incredible pace this year with splits of .433/.493/.581/1.409 with 7 HR, 16 RBI, and 3 SB. The only thing holding those stolen base numbers up are the extra base hits and I think the Braves are just fine with that.


Max Scherzer (P, Washington Nationals)

Quick Hits:

  • 13IP

  • 15K

  • 0.69ERA, 0.62 WHIP

Analysis: While Scherzer did gather a loss for his April 11th outing, he only gave up one run through six. In Max’s second start, the Nationals, trying to do their best “New York Mets when deGrom starts” impersonation, only mustered one run, but Scherzer shut down the Diamondback
