Ronald Acuna Jr. Wins First MVP Award

  • Headshot for Ronald Acuna

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. was unanimously named the 2023 National League Most Valuable Player for the first time in his career. Acuna was fully expected to win the award after a groundbreaking 40-home run, 70-stolen base season. Before 2023, no player in MLB history had hit 40 home runs and stolen 70 bases in a single season. The 25-year-old became just the third Venezuelan-born player to win an MVP, joining Miguel Cabrera and Jose Altuve. Acuna was also the first player to ever lead his league in hits (217), runs (149), on-base percentage (.416), OPS (1.012) and total bases (383) since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. He became Atlanta's eighth MVP and first since Freddie Freeman won the award in the shortened 2020 season.
