Acuna (knee) could begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett within the next couple of days, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. "He's doing really well," Braves manager Brian Snitker said before Tuesday's game. "I'm not sure when he'll go out [on a rehab assignment]. But I think it's going to be sooner rather than later."
The 20-year-old has been taking batting practice and engaging in running exercises at the team's spring-training complex since the weekend without any issues, so the next step in his rehab will be game action. Acuna has been out since May 27 with a sprain of his left ACL, and he appears to be on track to return to the big-league lineup just under a month after getting hurt.
Acuna successfully worked through baserunning drills Saturday, but the Braves want to see a little bit more from their prized prospect before clearing him for minor-league rehab assignment. He'll work out and face live pitching in Orlando for a few days and Atlanta will determine the next step in his rehab thereafter. The 20-year-old has been on the shelf since May 28 with a knee sprain.

Acuna hit on the field Thursday and after running the bases Saturday is poised to start a minor-league rehab assignment. The 20-year-old has been on the disabled list with a left knee sprain since May 28, and could return for next weekend's series against the Orioles if he has a short rehab assignment early in the week.
Acuna (knee) was able to hit on the field prior to Thursday's game and will attempt to run the bases within the coming days, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Per Bowman, it appears that Acuna is about a week away from returning to the field with the Braves, though more should be known following the outcome of the outfielder's baserunning drills. If all goes according to plan, Acuna could embark on a rehab assignment early next week, paving the way for his reinstatement prior to a six-game set against Baltimore and Cincinnati.
Acuna (knee) could begin a rehab assignment before this weekend, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The young outfielder hit the disabled list in late May with a mild knee sprain. He's now feeling no pain when running and hopes to begin a rehab assingment soon. An exact timetable for his major-league return is not yet clear.
