Ronald Acuna Jr. has been one of baseball’s most compelling stars since his Major League debut all the way back in 2018.
The 25-year-old has a Rookie of the Year Award, two Silver Slugger Awards, and four All-Star nods to his name in just six years in the big leagues.
This season, the Atlanta Braves star has put on a show on the offensive side, hitting for an average of .335 with 29 home runs, 79 RBI, 116 runs scored, and 61 stolen bases.
Acuna is also slugging .572 and reaching base at a .418 clip.
On Twitter, MLB Network posted a cool compilation video featuring all of his stolen bases from this year.

In addition to his powerful bat, Acuna is a legitimate threat on the basepaths.
Just one more home run will put him in the 30-homer, 60-steals club.
Acuna continues to do significant damage on the offensive side for the Braves.
His power and his speed are viable tools as he continues to rise through the ranks of the National League.
With these impressive stats, Acuna is on track to potentially earn his first NL MVP.
He and teammate Matt Olson are both in the conversation for the award.
But Acuna’s speed has been one of the most impressive aspects of his game.
The video above is proof enough of that.
Swiping bags is no challenge at all for the star outfielder, and he could potentially even reach 70 stolen bases by the end of the year if he keeps swiping bags at this rate.NEXT: Ronald Acuna Jr. Dealt With A Scary Scene In Denver
