Capper Penguin is rolling with possibly the hottest hitter in all of the MLB right now. Check it out below!
Capper Penguin's MLB Tuesday Play of the Day: Braves @ Padres - 4/18
Atlanta Braves @ San Diego Padres (9:40 PM ET)
Ronald Acuna has been a 2 hit MACHINE recently and he's primed to get at least 2 bases again vs Blake Snell.
Ronald Acuna has had 2+ hits in his last 6 of 8 games, 2+ hits in his last 2 games vs the Padres, and 2+ hits in his last 6 of 7 games away. Crazy high hit rate from any perspective and he's had nice success vs Blake Snell. He has a .400 batting average with a 1.200 slug percentage vs him including a double, but more importantly I love his ISO vs Blake Snell's top to pitches: the fastball and slider. He has a nice .250 ISO vs the fastball and .316 ISO vs the slider meaning when he's making contact vs these pitches he's hitting for extra bases. Not great iso vs the curveball (Snell's 3rd pitch), but has a .400 batting average against it. Blake Snell should avoid throwing the fastball vs Acuna, but may be tough since he throws it 62.3% of the time.
Let's get another 2 hitter Ronnie!!

Capper Penguin's MLB Play of the Day: Cardinals @ Pirates - 6/2
Pittsburgh HAS NOT been striking out early in their games and the only guy that has covered this line recently was Luis Castillo 5 games ago. Besides him, starters haven't hit this......
