Acuna was prematurely lifted from Thursday's Arizona Fall League game after being hit by a pitch near his wrist, William Boor of MLB.com reports.

Acuna was initially able to stay in the game after getting plunked, but he looked uncomfortable on the basepaths and was subsequently removed between innings. It's possible his removal was simply precautionary -- as Acuna is baseball's top prospect -- but that won't be known until he's further evaluated in the coming days.
