Ronald Acuna Jr. returns to Braves lineup Saturday

Ronald Acuna Jr. is back in the Braves lineup on Saturday against the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

Acuna makes his return as Atlanta's designated hitter after being held out of the starting lineup the previous three games due to a quad strain. He did come up big for the Braves with a pinch-hit RBI double on Friday that tied the game in the seventh inning.

Ronald Acuna Jr. to remain out of lineup on Friday

Ronald Acuna Jr. will remain sidelined for Atlanta's Friday evening game against Miami.

Fantasy Impact

Acuna has been diagnosed with a grade 1 strain of his right quad and will miss his third straight game due to the injury. Fantasy managers will need to hold steady for good news in the next few days and hope that he avoids a trip to the injured list. In his limited at-bats this season, Acuna is hitting a great .292 with two home runs, eight RBI and eight steals in 17 games.

Ronald Acuna Jr. diagnosed with Grade 1 quad strain

Ronald Acuna Jr. has a Grade 1 strain of his right quad, according to Brian Snitker.

Fantasy Impact

Acuna was scratched from Wednesday's lineup with a tight quad, and although managers never want to hear the word "strain" when it comes to a soft tissue injury, the effect is blunted a bit because it's Grade 1. Snitker said that Acuna will not play Thursday but could DH within a few days. Given Acuna's seemingly superhuman ability to bounce back from injuries - he stole a base in three of his first four games back after missing nearly a week with a groin strain - fantasy managers shouldn't get too worked up about this injury. Even if he needs a short IL stint, his production when in the lineup is so elite that managers should prefer to miss a week of production in exchange for a fully healthy Acuna. In 80 plate appearances, he is slashing .292/.400/.446 with a ridiculous eight steals already. Fantasy managers should take a deep breath and expect a short absence, but no long-term ill effects.

Ronald Acuna Jr. (right quad tightness) scratched from lineup Wednesday

Per David O'Brien of The Athletic, Ronald Acuna Jr. has been removed from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

Acuna Jr. experienced right groin tightness that forced a little rehab earlier this month, so the lineup removal is out of precaution following the outfielder's discomfort during pregame warmup. Hopefully sitting Wednesday precludes any near future flare ups for Acuna, who has already battled back from a 2021 torn ACL.
