Ronald Acuna Jr. not starting Sunday

by Matthew Davis | Braves Correspondent | Sun, May 5th 11:36am EDT

Ronald Acuna Jr. was removed from the game yesterday due to back tightness. Acuna Jr. was asked about it after the game, saying “ I feel good. Obviously I think I feel a little bit of pain in my back, but as far as I see it, I’m still playing every day.”

Fantasy Impact:

Christian Yelich and Juan Soto have recently dealt with similar issues with Juan Soto’s (back spasms) resulting in a trip to the IL. Acuna Jr. is only 21 years old so fantasy owners shouldn’t hit the panic button just yet. The Braves are headed west for a road trip starting in Los Angeles on Monday.
