Acuña takes aim at ’40-40 Club’…only four MLBers to have done so since Soriano in 2006

In baseball, it’s not often that a home run hitter is also a good stealer.

Twenty home runs and 20 stolen bases in a season is considered a major accomplishment. That’s the 20-20 Club.

It’s even harder to join the 30-30 club. It’s really hard to join the 40-40 club.

Only four players in Major League Baseball history have joined the 40-40 club. Barry Bonds, Jose Canseco, Alex Rodriguez, and Alfonso Soriano. Soriano was the last to achieve it in 2006.토토사이트

There are none in Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB), and the only one in the KBO was Eric Thames in 2015 with 47 home runs and 40 doubles.

In the MLB, there is a player who is 17 years away from achieving this feat. Ronaldo Acuña (Atlanta Braves).

As of the 28th, the right fielder has 11 home runs and 22 stolen bases in 51 team games. At this rate, he’s on pace to hit 35 homers and steal 70 bases, according to

That’s five homers short of joining the 40-40 club. But with a late-season surge, 40 homers is within reach.

Aquino narrowly missed joining the 40-40 club in 2019 with 41 home runs and 37 stolen bases. This year, he should easily surpass 40 steals, but home runs are the question.

Meanwhile, there have been 43 players in MLB history who have joined the 30-30 club, and they have done so 65 times. Bonds has done it five times.
