On one hand, it seemed as if Acuna had proven everything there was to prove. He soared through the minors last season as if the learning curve somehow didn’t apply to him, his average spiking at each level. He went to the Arizona Fall League, where he continued to mash (1.053 OPS) and became the youngest player ever to win the MVP. Then came his ridiculous spring training performance. Plus, it’s not like the Braves didn’t need outfield help: Although they had veteran Nick Markakis in right and 2017 All-Star Ender Inciarte in center, there was a glaring hole in left, where Preston Tucker and Lane Adams — a pair of reserves in their late 20s — were Atlanta’s next best options.

The Buccaneers should have known Bo better. They didn’t have the franchise pull to convince him to choose the NFL over baseball. He held his ground and refused to sign with them, but when they gave up his rights a year later, the Los Angeles Raiders made him the NFL offer he couldn’t refuse.
Off-field concerns related to a fight in college were there before the draft. He kept getting in trouble in Nashville before his rookie season began. Drug possession charges plagued him in 2006. A shooting incident in’07 got him suspended for all of ’08. At least he found some kind of stability with the Bengals.
