After beating the Washington Nationals 3-2 on Tuesday night, the Atlanta Braves secured a spot in the 2022 Major League Baseball playoffs. In this classification, the contribution of La Sabana outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. stands out.
The Braves will most likely have a goal of trying to retain their “Fall Classic” title in 2021, and securing a postseason berth is the first step to that. In addition, for this month of October they have a group of important players who were not present last year for different reasons, among them is Acuña Jr., who did not play due to injury.
On the other hand, the Braves ensure their participation in the “Promised Land” at least for the wild card figure, but most likely the goal of Brian Snitker’s troop will be to close the regular round as champions of the National League East Division.

The outfielder Acuña Jr. this 2022 will want revenge for having been left without playing in the last season in this stretch of the Major League campaign, so for Atlanta having a player of his caliber is a point in its favor.
The Braves so far have a record of 93 wins and 55 losses in this season, so they will seek to continue adding wins to try to knock down the New York Mets from first place in the division, who will also say present in the Playoffs.
In 109 games played, the 24-year-old native has recorded 115 hits in 428 at-bats, including 24 doubles, 13 home runs, 45 RBIs, 65 runs scored, 28 stolen bases, an average of .269 and an OPS of .771.
