Yep. You read that right. A certain Royals prospect was compared to baseball’s top prospect, Braves OF Ronald Acuna Jr.
Yeah. He went there. “ACUNA LEVEL THUNDER” people. That is absolutely massive amounts of power. Again, Ronald Acuna Jr. is the top prospect in all of baseball according to most publications. Seuly Matias isn’t quite a consensus top 100 prospect yet, but you can sure bet he’ll be on the midseason lists if he keeps hitting like this. The power is legit, and a healthy Seuly Matias is finally showing everyone why Royals nation ought to be excited for his future.
Through 7 games, Matias is slashing .348/.400/.957/1.357 with 4 HR, a 3B, 9 RBI, and a SB for class Low-A Lexington.
