  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Hits Two Homers

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. led the way offensively Tuesday in an 8-2 win over the Washington Nationals, going 2-for-5 with two solo home runs. He now has 15 for the year. It's been a down year for the right fielder, who has a .781 OPS in 113 games this season, a number which sits well below his career .892 mark. Still, Acuna Jr. has racked up 69 runs scored, 49 RBI, and 28 steals in 507 plate appearances. Those numbers will play, even if they don't live up to the first-round price tag for fantasy managers.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Returns To Starting Lineup Monday

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (back) is back in right field and is hitting leadoff on Monday against the Washington Nationals and right-hander Cory Abbott. Acuna hadn't started the team's previous four games due to mid-back tightness, but he had two at-bats as a pinch-hitter on Sunday against the Philadelphia Phillies and is now back in there for fantasy managers to begin the week. Get the 24-year-old All-Star back into all starting lineups in season-long leagues. In 19 games so far in September, he's gone 20-for-76 (.263) with two home runs, 11 RBI, nine runs scored and three stolen bases. The fact that he's back in right field means that his back issues are hopefully a thing of the past.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Appears As Pinch-Hitter Sunday

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (back) went 1-for-1 with an RBI, run scored and a walk in two plate appearances as a pinch-hitter off the bench in Sunday's 8-7 extra-inning win over the Philadelphia Phillies. The 24-year-old has been dealing with mid-back tightness and hasn't started a game for the Braves since Sept. 21, but the fact that he entered the game on Sunday and got two at-bats is a good sign that he might be able to return on Monday for the start of a series against the Washington Nationals. He's been in and out of the lineup at times this year due to various injuries. Acuna is hitting .263 (20-for-76) with two home runs, 11 RBI, nine runs scored and three stolen bases in 19 games in September.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Out On Friday

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (back) is not in the team's starting lineup on Friday against the Philadelphia Phillies. Acuna missed the game on Thursday with mid-back tightness and will now miss his second straight game. It remains to be seen if he'll be available at all this weekend against Philadelphia, but fantasy managers will be hoping that the All-Star outfielder will be able to return soon. Robbie Grossman is back in right field and is hitting ninth on Friday against Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola. The 33-year-old veteran slugger won't have much DFS upside in the nine-hole, and he's hitting just .210/.312/.313 on the season with seven home runs, 44 RBI, 39 runs scored and six stolen bases in 390 at-bats.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Iffy To Start Friday

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (back) was scratched ahead of Thursday's contest versus the Phillies and the club is "unsure" about his availability for Friday's matchup. The 24-year-old felt some mid-back tightness following batting practice, and manager Brian Snitker stated that something "banged on him" after hitting in the cage afterwards. It's a situation to monitor for fantasy managers heading into the weekend, so be sure to check back for an update prior to tomorrow's game.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Scratched With Back Tightness Thursday

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (back) was scratched from the starting lineup on Thursday against the Philadelphia Phillies with mid-back tightness. Until we know more about Acuna's condition, fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day. Robbie Grossman is moving to right field and will bat ninth, while Marcell Ozuna is now starting in left field and hitting eighth against Phillies left-hander Ranger Suarez. Hopefully, Ozuna's injury isn't serious enough to keep him out for the remainder of the 2022 regular season as the Braves try to take the National League East division from the New York Mets. Stay tuned for more information on Acuna's injury later on Thursday night or early Friday.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Collects Two Hits Wednesday

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. recorded two hits in five at-bats on Wednesday when his team lost to the Washington Nationals 3-2. He singled twice, scored once, and had an RBI. After missing almost the first month of the year, Acuna Jr. has been a bit disappointing over 110 games, posting a .270/.356/.416 slash line with 13 HRs, 66 runs, 46 RBI, and 28 stolen bases. Those marks are still good for fantasy managers, but the home run shortage isn't something they were expecting after smashing 24 in 84 games season a year ago. Nonetheless, Acuna Jr.'s a superstar that needs to start every day.
