3/15:Ronald Acuna checks every box. He has top-tier speed, a steady glove, a great arm, patient at the plate, high contact, great bat path and is still growing. A question mark surrounding the 6-foot, 180-pound Venezuelan is how much power he can develop into. This somewhat baffles me, as that power question doesn’t come into play for some prospects smaller than him. Acuna is elite behind the plate for pitch recognition, zone awareness and contact and has gained muscle mass throughout his stay stateside. It has shown in the offseason, as he has a .556 slugging percentage in the ABL. As he begins to finish up his growth and continue to bulk up (natural size), he should settle into a frame capable of hitting around or above 20-plus home runs while maintaining the ability to play center field. He may end up the top prospect in baseball, but continued success may rush him to the pros before that day comes.--Joshua Schwager
