Braves' Ronald Acuna: Away for treatment
Acuna (foot) remained in Atlanta for treatment while his teammates travelled to Philadelphia on Tuesday, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Acuna left Saturday's game against the Dodgers after fouling a ball off his foot and will miss at least two games.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Won't start Tuesday
Acuna (foot) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies.
Even after an off day Monday, Acuna's absence from the lineup for a second straight game comes as no major surprise after he was using a medical scooter to get around the Atlanta clubhouse during Sunday's series finale with the Dodgers. Acuna fouled a ball off his left foot in Saturday's 5-3 win and avoided a fracture, but he's not yet putting much pressure on the bruised foot and could require a trip to the 10-day injured list. Atlanta may want to wait and see how much progress Acuna makes, if any, over the next day or two before determining if he'll need to go on the IL. Mike Ford will enter the lineup in Acuna's stead Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ronald Acuna: Avoids fracture, status uncertain
Acuna, who is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, isn't dealing with a fracture but can't put much pressure on his left foot, and he hopes to be cleared to play within the next couple days, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old isn't sporting a protective boot or crutches after fouling a ball off his foot Saturday, though he did enter the clubhouse Sunday using a medical scooter. Acuna appears to have avoided a serious injury, but how he progresses over the next couple days should dictate whether or not he'll require a brief trip to the injured list.... See More ... See Less

Marcell Ozuna will shift to the outfield while William Contreras serves as the designated hitter in the series finale.... See More ... See Less

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Taking Thursday off
Acuna is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Giants, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
He'll be one of three Atlanta regulars sitting out in a day game after a night game, as Adam Duvall and Austin Riley are also joining Acuna on the bench.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Launches seventh home run
Acuna went three-for-five with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in a 12-10 loss to the Giants on Tuesday.
Acuna has been excellent since being activated from the injured list with a long-term knee injury at the end of April. The 24-year-old star right fielder now has five home runs in June and is slashing .282/.375/.468 on the season. His elevated OBP suggests that he is seeing the ball well and he'll obviously continue to sit atop the Braves' quality lineup.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ronald Acuna: Clubs sixth homer
Acuna went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a hit-by-pitch and an additional run scored in Saturday's 10-4 win over the Pirates.
Acuna opened the bottom of the first inning with a solo shot off Zach Thompson. Four of Acuna's six homers this season have come in his last six games, a span in which he's gone 10-for-23 (.435).

Despite what many would consider a disappointing home run total for the righty in 2022 even amid his time off due to injury, Acuna is slashing an excellent .320/.411/.534.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ronald Acuna: Big game in series finale
Acuna went 4-for-5 with a solo home run, a stolen base and three total runs scored in Sunday's 8-7 win over the Rockies.
Through four games in June, Acuna has three multi-hit efforts, going 8-for-18 (.444) in that span. His first three hits were singles, but his fourth one was an important solo shot in the eighth, which provided Atlanta with just enough insurance to get the win. The 24-year-old superstar owns an excellent .313/.408/.475 slash line with three homers, 10 steals, 13 RBI and 18 runs scored through 26 contests this year.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ronald Acuna: Serving as designated hitter

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Receives day-to-day label
Atlanta elected to withhold Acuna from the lineup for Wednesday's game in Arizona after he felt sore following Tuesday's 8-7 loss, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution repots.
Acuna's absence from the lineup initially looked to be a case of him getting a breather for a day game after a night game, but he's apparently not feeling 100 percent as Atlanta wraps up its series at Chase Field. The club hasn't indicated that Acuna is feeling soreness in his surgically repaired right knee, nor his right quadriceps, which kept him on the bench for three straight games at one point last week. Acuna is being labeled as day-to-day, and Atlanta is seemingly hopeful that the 24-year-old will be back in action for Thursday's series opener in Colorado.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ronald Acuna: On bench Wednesday
Acuna is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Atlanta hasn't indicated that Acuna suffered any sort of setback with the strained quadriceps that sidelined him for three straight contests last week, so he's likely just getting some routine maintenance Wednesday while the team wraps up its series in Arizona with a day game after a night game. Guillermo Heredia will enter the outfield as a replacement for Acuna, who went 3-for-15 with a double, a stolen base, two runs and an RBI while starting each of the previous four contests....

Acuna went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Marlins.
The 24-year-old continues to go out of his way to prove to everyone that his knee is 100 percent.

Acuna (quadriceps) is starting Saturday against the Marlins.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Remains out Friday
Acuna (quadriceps) will not be in the lineup Friday against Miami, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Acuna's absence will extend to three games as he continues to get treatment for his strained quadriceps.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Sitting Thursday, as expected
Acuna (quadriceps) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Acuna was scratched from Wednesday's lineup with a Grade 1 right quadriceps strain, and manager Brian Snitker said after the contest he was unlikely to play Thursday. It's the second leg injury the 24-year-old has dealt with since returning in late April from a torn ACL, as he also missed a few games in mid-May with groin tightness. Acuna should be considered day-to-day for now, and there's been no indication the quad strain will require a trip to the injured list. Guillermo Heredia will start in center field Thursday in his place.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ronald Acuna: Managing Grade 1 quad strain
Manager Brian Snitker said Acuna was diagnosed with a Grade 1 right quadriceps strain and is expected to be out of the lineup Thursday against the Phillies, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to the injury, and it appears he'll be sidelined for at least one more game. Acuna has also dealt with groin tightness since being activated from the injured list in late April, and Atlanta is likely to be cautious to avoid rushing him back given he's fresh off an ACL injury. Travis Demeritte and Guillermo Heredia are the likely options to see more playing time in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ronald Acuna: Scratched from Wednesday's lineup
Acuna was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies due to right quadriceps tightness.
The 24-year-old led off in the last seven games and hit .308 with two doubles, six runs, three RBI and three stolen bases. It's not yet clear whether Acuna will be available off the bench, but Orlando Arcia will take his place as the designated hitter and bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
