Atlanta Braves right-hander Ian Anderson is so impressed by what teammate Ronald Acuna Jr. is doing with the bat, he thinks there must be better competition for him elsewhere.

"When is he gonna get called up to the next league, that's what I'm wondering," Anderson said after Thursday's 7-6 victory over the Miami Marlins, according to David O'Brien of The Athletic. "It's unreal."

Acuna went 2-for-5 while crushing his MLB-leading seventh home run Thursday. However, he was even better Wednesday when he hit two homers while driving in four.

The 23-year-old is slashing .442/.492/1.000 through 13 games this season. But Acuna, who finished three stolen bases shy of joining the 40-40 club in 2019, has also been producing like this for years.
