  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Notches another theft

    Acuna went 1-for-3 with two walks, a run and a stolen base in a 4-3 win over the Marlins on Saturday.

    Acuna's steal of third base in the sixth inning marked the sixth game over his past seven contests in which he hast stolen a bag. Over that stretch, he is batting .375 with a homer, nine walks, eight runs and six thefts. Acuna didn't play his first game of the season until April 28, but he already has eight steals, tied for sixth-most leaguewide.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Swipes seventh bag Friday

    Acuna went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 5-3 win over the Marlins.

    Getting the start at designated hitter and batting leadoff once again, Acuna swiped his seventh bag in only 13 games since returning to action from the torn ACL that ended his 2021 campaign prematurely. He suffered the knee injury in Miami last July while chasing down a flyball, and as a result he's expected to remain at DH for the rest of this series before Atlanta heads home to take on the Phillies on Monday.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Back in outfield Wednesday

    Acuna will start in right field and bat leadoff in Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Acuna returned to the lineup for Tuesday's 3-0 win as a designated hitter after missing the previous five games with a sore groin. The groin issue didn't seem to inhibit Acuna at the plate or on the basepaths, as he reached base three times on the night and recorded his sixth stolen base of the season. His return to the outfield for the day game after a night game suggests Atlanta is comfortable with his health.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Back in action as DH

    Acuna (groin) will bat leadoff and serve as Atlanta's designated hitter in Tuesday's game in Milwaukee.

    As anticipated, Acuna will put an end to his five-game absence and slot back into his normal spot in the Atlanta lineup, albeit in a non-defensive role. Atlanta could be inclined to deploy Acuna more frequently at DH more the next few days while he looks to move past the sore left groin, but playing through the lower-body injury shouldn't necessarily limit his involvement on the basepaths. After returning from the injured list in late April following a prolonged recovery from the ACL surgery he underwent last July, Acuna proceeded to go 5-for-5 on stolen-base attempts in his first 10 games with Atlanta before the groin issue forced him to the bench over the last several days.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Likely to play Tuesday

    Manager Brian Snitker said that Acuna (groin), who isn't starting Monday against the Brewers, will likely play Tuesday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

    Acuna will be out of the lineup for a fifth consecutive game Monday, but he passed all the tests the team gave him while running the bases and participating in other exercises. While the team doctors will monitor how he feels following Monday's workout, he appears to be on track to avoid a trip to the injured list.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Remains out of lineup

    Acuna (groin) isn't starting Monday against the Brewers.

    Acuna underwent an MRI over the weekend that came back clean and remains day-to-day for now, but he'll be out of the lineup for a fifth consecutive game. Travis Demeritte will shift to right field while Orlando Arcia enters the lineup as the designated hitter Monday.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Day-to-day with groin issue

    Atlanta got the "best news possible" regarding the MRI on Acuna's groin Saturday, according to manager Brian Snitker, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. "He's just going to be day-to-day. I don't know how long it will be. But there's nothing from the MRI that showed he's going to be shut down," Snitker said.

    Apparently Acuna is experiencing discomfort when he runs and slides on the basepaths, which led to Saturday's MRI. His surgically repaired knee is reportedly not a problem at all. William Contreras got a start at designated hitter with Acuna out of the lineup.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Sits Sunday with groin issue

    Acuna (groin) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Padres.

    His MRI didn't reveal anything that would lead Atlanta to shut him down, but he still feels discomfort when he runs and slides, so it's not surprising that he is out of action for Sunday morning's game. The team says it's his groin, not his surgically repaired knee, that is giving him trouble. Travis Demeritte will pick up another start in place of Acuna.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Sitting out Friday

    Acuna (groin) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

    The 24-year-old was held out of the lineup Wednesday due to soreness in his left groin, and he'll remain on the bench coming off Atlanta's scheduled day off Thursday. According to Mark Bowman of MLB.com, Acuna said he feels fine and expects to be back in the lineup Saturday. Marcell Ozuna will shift to the outfield in his absence while William Contreras serves as the designated hitter.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Slated for MRI

    Acuna (groin), who isn't starting Saturday against the Padres, will undergo an MRI, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

    Acuna indicated Friday that he felt fine and expected to return to the lineup Saturday, but he was ultimately excluded from the starting nine for a third straight game. His initial diagnosis was left groin soreness, but Saturday's precautionary MRI should help provide a better idea of the nature and severity of his injury.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Still not starting Saturday

    Acuna (groin) isn't starting Saturday against the Padres.

    Acuna has been dealing with left groin soreness recently and will be held out of the lineup for a third consecutive game. Acuna said Friday that he felt fine, so it's possible he'll be available off the bench if needed. However, Marcell Ozuna will start in the outfield while William Contreras serves as the designated hitter.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Dealing with groin soreness

    Acuna's absence from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox is due to a sore groin, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Atlanta doesn't seem especially concerned about the groin issue, as manager Brian Snitker said that he thinks that Acuna will be ready to play in Friday's game against the Padres by sitting out Wednesday and then benefiting from Thursday's team off day, according to O'Brien. Orlando Arcia will pick up a start as Atlanta's designated hitter in place of Acuna, who has posted an excellent .878 OPS and has gone 5-for-5 on stolen-base attempts in 10 games since making his season debut April 28. However, Acuna has struck out in 37 percent of his plate appearances, which is a major increase from his career-long rate (26.1 percent).

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Acuna isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

    Acuna appeared to be favoring his leg during Tuesday's loss to Boston, and he'll be held out of the lineup a day later. Whether the 24-year-old is available off the bench remains to be seen, but Travis Demeritte will shift to right field while Orlando Arcia enters the lineup as the designated hitter Wednesday.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Productive against Brewers

    Acuna went 2-for-4 with a double, a run, an RBI, a stolen base, a walk and a strikeout in Sunday's 9-2 win over Milwaukee.

    Acuna has reached base in all nine of his games since making his season debut, and he's now posted back-to-back multi-hit performances. Over his nine games in 2022, the 24-year-old has slashed .278/.366/.500 with two homers, two doubles, five RBI, three runs and four stolen bases.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Goes deep in win Saturday

    Acuna went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a stolen base and a walk in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Brewers.

    Acuna put his well-rounded skill set on display in the victory, getting Atlanta on the board with a solo shot off Corbin Burnes in the fifth inning and swiping a bag in the seventh. The star outfielder hasn't shown much rust since returning from a knee injury in late April, as he's slugged two homers and stolen three bases in eight games. He's collected at least one hit in all but one of those contests.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Crushes first homer of season

    Acuna went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Brewers.

    With Atlanta wearing retro uniforms from the Hank Aaron era against Milwaukee, Acuna launched an Eric Lauer offering 450 feet to center field in the fourth inning. It was Acuna's first homer since July 7 of last year and just his second extra-base hit since returning to the lineup from a torn ACL he suffered a couple days later. Acuna's .626 OPS so far is well below his usual standards, but he's hit safely in four straight games and seems close to shaking off the last of his rust.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Back-to-back starts in right field

    Acuna will lead off and play right field Saturday against the Brewers, marking the first time he's played the field in consecutive games since returning from his torn ACL, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Acuna returned from the injured list April 28, a bit before he was expected to. Atlanta treated him cautiously at first, giving him two off days and three starts at designated hitter in the first nine games since his return, but it looks like he may be close to reclaiming his role as the everyday right fielder going forward. He hasn't looked like himself at the plate thus far following his long absence, as he's hit just .207/.281/.345 with a 40.6 percent strikeout rate through seven games, but it's probably only a matter of time before he gets his timing back.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Sitting in front end of twin bill

    Acuna is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Mets, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Acuna is now sitting for the second time in six games since he was reinstated from the 10-day injured list last Thursday, but the rest days should become less frequent for the 24-year-old as he becomes further removed from the ACL tear he suffered last July. Guillermo Heredia will pick up a start in the outfield in place of Acuna, who has gone 3-for-17 with a walk, two stolen bases and an RBI since returning to action. Expect Acuna to re-enter the lineup for the nightcap Tuesday.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Won't play Friday

    Acuna won't be in the lineup Friday against the Rangers, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

    Acuna's surgically repaired knee looked fine Thursday in his season debut, as he went 1-for-5 with two stolen bases. However, the team understandably is taking a cautious approach with its top player, and it's likely that Acuna will continue to have built-in days off for the foreseeable future. Atlanta has not announced who will replace Acuna in the lineup, though Guillermo Heredia is a likely option.

  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Leading off Thursday

    Acuna is starting in right field and leading off in Thursday's game against the Cubs.

    After he made a sooner-than-anticipated return from the 10-day injured list earlier Thursday, Acuna will be included in the lineup for the series finale with the Cubs in what will be his season debut. The 24-year-old appeared in six rehab games at Triple-A Gwinnett and went 7-for-19 with a double, four runs, an RBI, three stolen bases and six walks. Acuna is slated to play on an everyday basis now that he's back to 100 percent, with Atlanta planning on rotating him between right field and designated hitter initially as he eases back in from the torn ACL that he suffered last July. According to David O'Brien of The Athletic, Acuna is scheduled to rest in Friday's game in Texas, as Atlanta doesn't want him to play full games on back-to-back days right off the bat. Now that he's fully healthy again, Acuna should be one of the top fantasy contributors after slashing .283/.394/.596 with 24 homers, 72 runs, 52 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 82 games last season prior to injuring his knee.
