For fans looking for baseball history, you may be disappointed. Though Ronald Acuna Jr. had a great shot to be the youngest 40/40 player of all-time, the team will be cautious with the hip injury he sustained and he will sit out the rest of the regular season in hopes he will be 100% for the playoffs.
