If 10 HR's are easier to find than 20 SB, why is Acuna being drafted over Trea Turner?

Recommended Posts

Just curious that Acuna is constantly going at pick 4-7 in most my drafts and almost always over Turner

 

Turner will steal 20 or more based than Acuna, will have more runs and more than likely only be 10-12 HR short of Acuna

 

Thoughts?

No doubt Acuna is being drafted like he is money for 30/30 and a 290 avg. Owners will be disappointed when they find Acuna only have 15-20 SB come September

People are drafting Acuna Jr high because his upside is of a Mike Trout. So for an aggressive owner they will take a chance of Acuna Jr over Trea Turner. 

Sky is really the limit for Acuna Jr. Factor in that he has a great supporting cast of hitters, it's understandable the justification to draft him at  pick 4 to 7.

Acuna has the potential for 5 categories similar to Trout. I personally don't think he's there yet, but he's dynamic. I avoided him first round. Turner doesn't have Harper's bat anymore which may actually help his steals, but could hurt his run totals. I'd still go with Turner though since he's a bit more proven.

I play on Yahoo and Trea Turner is going a head of Acuna. Trea is ranked 5, Acuna is ranked 9. That's typically been the value where I see it.

Just did my Yahoo ROTO draft.  Turner went 6th and Acuna 7th.
