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

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.

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

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.
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.

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.

Acuna should be ready to go for the Braves' playoff opener, but Ender Inciarte will check into the starting nine in his stead Sunday.

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.
