Ronald Acuna Jr.
LF,CF,RF - ATL - DTD
Braves manager Brian Snitker things OF Ronald Acuña Jr. (ankle) has a chance to return on Monday.
Acuña missed most of the weekend series versus the Brewers, but he was able to pinch-hit on Sunday afternoon. Fantasy managers should check Atlanta's lineup beforehand, but as of now the expectation is that Acuña shouldn't be out much longer.
Braves OF Ronald Acuña Jr. (ankle) is absent from Friday's lineup against the Brewers.
X-rays came back negative on Acuña's ankle but the team wants to give him some time to rest. Ehire Adrianza is playing right field and leading off in his absence.
Ronald Acuna Jr. went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Thursday's game against the Blue Jays. Acuna left the game with an ankle injury, X-Rays were negative, no word on a possible MRI, he is listed day-to-day.
It wasn't a normal sprain, more like he jammed his ankle. The downside would be a bone contusion, which would likely lead to an IL stint. Acuna is one of the few good things going for the Braves that offers any consistency. He remains one of the top players across MLB despite the team's woes.
Braves OF Ronald Acuna Jr. left Thursday's game early with an apparent ankle injury, but x-ray results following the game were negative and he is now day-to-day.
The injury seemed to be pretty serious for Acuna, and I'd expect the Braves to be extremely patient with their young star. OF Ender Inciarte has already been called up to replace OF Christian Pache (hamstring), but expect INF/OF Ehire Adrianza to see increased playing time until Acuna is back to 100%.
Braves OF Ronald Acuna Jr. locked up his left leg after running out a ground ball in the 7th inning. Acuna was able to walk off under his own power, and has since left the game.
The injury is scary sight for fantasy owners as Acuna had been enjoying an extremely good season with a .304/.403/.640 slashline. INF Johan Comargo came in for Acuna, as Austin Riley was moved to the outfield. With fellow OF Christian Pache also getting injured earlier in the game, expect the Braves to make some sort of move to get an extra outfielder on the major league roster.
