Braves' Ronald Acuna: Keeps raking Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 4-for-5 with two doubles and a two-run home run in Friday's 8-1 win over the Phillies.

The young superstar fell one base short of hitting for a cycle. Acuna already has four multi-hit performances and seven extra-base hits (four doubles and three homers) through seven games, giving him a blistering .393/.433/.857 slash line.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 3-for-6 with a double, two runs, one RBI, two stolen bases and one walk during Wednesday's doubleheader sweep at Washington.

The 23-year-old followed up Tuesday's two-homer performance by going 3-for-4 in Wednesday's matinee to help the Braves snatch their first win of the season. Acuna is 7-for-23 with two home runs, two doubles, four RBI, two stolen bases, two walks and six strikeouts through the first six games of 2021.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Launches two homers off Scherzer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs and three RBI during Tuesday's 6-5 loss at Washington.

The 23-year-old had gone 0-for-8 with four strikeouts over the previous two games, but he took Max Scherzer deep twice Tuesday, including a leadoff homer on the first pitch of the afternoon. Acuna will look to build on that production in Wednesday's twin bill against the Nationals.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: On base three times in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-4 with a double and a walk in Thursday's extra-inning loss to the Phillies.

The 23-year-old did his job setting the table as the leadoff hitter, but the heart of the Atlanta order wasn't able to take advantage. Acuna is expected to produce massive fantasy numbers once again after falling only three steals shy of a 40-40 campaign in 2019.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Finds power stroke
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna homered for the third time in his last four games during Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "When he gets in that mode, it's something fun to watch," manager Brian Snitker said after Monday's game. "Good takes. He's not chasing. You can tell, seeing the at-bats, that he's getting locked in a little bit."

The 23-year-old had a slow start to the spring and still only has five hits in 24 at-bats (.208), but four of those knocks have gone for extra bases. Acuna fell three steals shy of a 40-40 season in 2019 and posted a career-high .331 ISO last year, and there's no reason to expect anything but massive fantasy production from him in 2021.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Slow start to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna is 1-for-11 with one double and one run in four games through the first week of spring training.

The 23-year-old played through a wrist injury during the playoffs last season, but he's fully healthy in camp and seeing plenty of action early on. Acuna had a .987 OPS with 14 homers, eight stolen bases and 29 RBI in 46 games for Atlanta in 2020, and he should continue to operate atop the lineup for the Braves this season.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Played through wrist issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna played through a sore left wrist throughout the postseason, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Acuna wasn't injured badly enough that the Braves feared he could cause long-term damage, so he played through the issue, knowing that he could heal over the offseason. That perhaps explains why he hit a disappointing .217/.333/.370 in 12 playoff games. It doesn't sound as if the injury is expected to affect him heading into next season.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Grabs three hits in series clincher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 3-for-5 with an RBI double in Thursday's series-clinching Game 2 win over the Reds in the NL Wild Card Series.

The 22-year-old opened the scoring in the bottom of the fifth inning, doubling in Austin Riley. He certainly looks quite healthy after being scratched with a minor wrist issue ahead of the regular-season finale. Acuna now owns a .333/.412/.644 slash line in 11 career postseason games.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Leading off in Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna (wrist) is leading off and starting in center field Wednesday in Game 1 against the Reds.

He missed the season finale with left wrist irritation but will start Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series as expected. Acuna hit .256/.400/.620 against right-handed pitchers this season. Righty Trevor Bauer is starting for Cincinnati. Bauer held right-handed batters to a .146/.205/.220 line this season.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Expected to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna (wrist) is expected to play in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series on Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Acuna was scratched from Sunday's regular-season finale with left wrist irritation, but his absence from the lineup was considered precautionary. Manager Brian Snitker confirmed after the game that he expects Acuna to take the field for the first game of the postseason Wednesday.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Scratched Sunday with wrist issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves scratched Acuna from the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox with left wrist irritation, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Atlanta already locked up its spot in the postseason several days ago, so Acuna's absence from the lineup for the regular-season finale is merely considered precautionary. Acuna should be ready to go for the Braves' playoff opener, but Ender Inciarte will check into the starting nine in his stead Sunday.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Adds homer and stolen base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, three runs scored, a stolen base and a walk in Friday's 8-7 extra-innings win over the Red Sox.

Acuna opened the scoring with his leadoff homer in the bottom of the first inning. In the third, he was hit by a pitch and stole second. Acuna drew a walk and scored on an error in the eighth inning, and scored as the initial runner in the 10th after an Ozzie Albies single. In 45 games, Acuna has 14 homers, eight stolen bases, 46 runs scored and 29 RBI while slashing .256/.414/.596 across 198 plate appearances.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Strong showing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, four RBI, three runs, one walk and one strikeout in Sunday's win against the Mets.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Hits homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an RBI, three runs scored and a walk Friday as the Braves took down the Mets, 15-2.

Acuna led off the game with a double to left as he set the tone for a Braves offense that overall had a huge night. The 22-year-old would cap off his night by hitting back-to-back home runs with Ozzie Albies in the sixth, then he was replaced in center field by Ender Inciarte in the bottom half of the inning. Acuna's two-hit effort ended an 0-for-18 slump that stretched over the last five games, and he is now hitting .254/.405/.592 with 12 home runs, 23 RBI and 36 runs scored in 163 plate appearances this season.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Could return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna (foot) could play Saturday against the Nationals, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

After fouling a ball off his foot Friday, Acuna was unable to put any weight on his left foot as he left the field. However, manager Brian Snitker said that he was able to walk normally once he returned to the clubhouse. As a result, he may not be forced to miss any additional time.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: X-rays negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna underwent an X-ray on his foot that revealed no fractures.

Acuna appears to have avoided a major injury after fouling a ball off his foot during Friday's contest. He wasn't able to put any weight on his foot following the injury, but he's considered day-to-day going forward. Ender Inciarte should serve in center field if he misses any time.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Removed with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna was removed from Friday's game against the Nationals with an apparent left foot injury, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Acuna fouled a ball off his left foot in the top of the fourth inning, and he had to be helped off the field as a result. He was unable to put any weight on his foot when exiting the game. The nature and severity of the injury are unclear. Ender Inciarte replaced Acuna as a pinch hitter and could serve in center field if Acuna is forced to miss additional time.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer, two walks, a stolen base and three runs scored in Thursday's 7-6 win over the Nationals.

The outfielder's performance was highlighted by his two-run homer that cut the Nationals' lead to 5-4 in the fifth. Acuna also tallied a pair of walks and swiped his fifth bag during the game. The 22-year-old will take a robust .286/.440/.667 slash line into Friday.

Braves' Ronald Acuna: Records five RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Acuna went 3-for-4 with a home run, five RBI, four runs scored and three walks Wednesday as he helped the Braves to a 29-9 victory over the Marlins.

Acuna wasn't involved much in the 11-run second inning but came to life at the plate in the fifth with a three-run blast to center. He nearly repeated the same outcome in the following inning but his ball hit off the wall for a two-RBI double. The 2019 All-Star hasn't missed a beat since returning from the injured list Aug. 26, hitting .333/.529/.889 with six home runs and 11 RBI with a 9:14 K:BB.
