  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Back In Right Field Wednesday

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (groin) is back in right field and is batting leadoff on Wednesday against Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Corbin Burnes. Acuna returned to the starting lineup as the designated hitter on Tuesday after missing the previous five games due to a sore groin. The 24-year-old superstar reached base three times in his return and recorded his sixth steal of the year, so obviously his groin isn't much of an issue. The fact that he's back in the outfield on Wednesday is another sign that he's just find from a health standpoint. Keep Acuna in all starting fantasy lineups. Acuna is hitting .286/.412/.476 with an .888 OPS, two home runs, five RBI and six stolen bases in his first 11 games this season.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Returns Tuesday Against Brewers

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (groin) has returned to the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Milwaukee Brewers and right-hander Adrian Houser. Acuna is serving as the designated hitter and will bat leadoff after missing the last five games due to a sore left groin. Travis Demeritte will remain in right field and will hit sixth in the batting order against Milwaukee. Acuna has played in only 10 games this year after getting a late start while recovering from a torn ACL suffered last season, but he's hitting .282/.391/.487 in his first 46 plate appearances with two home runs, five RBI, four runs scored and five stolen bases. Hopefully his lower-body issue won't prevent him from running on the base paths, but even if it does, the 24-year-old superstar is a must-start.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Likely To Return On Tuesday

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (groin) ran the bases ahead of Monday night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Braves manager Brian Snitker stated that Acuna passed all the tests in his base running and in his other exercises on Monday. If Acuna recovers from Monday's workouts well, he is likely to return to action on Tuesday. Monday's game will be Acuna's fifth consecutive missed game due to a groin injury. Fantasy managers in weekly-lock leagues would be wise to slide Acuna into their lineups ahead of Monday night's action. Even if he misses a few games this week, he's still too valuable to keep on the bench.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Missing Fifth Straight Game

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (groin) is out of the starting lineup yet again on Monday against the Milwaukee Brewers. The 24-year-old superstar remains day-to-day, but this will be his fifth straight game on the bench due to a groin injury. The Braves are understandably being cautious with Acuna, even though his MRI exam came back clean over the weekend. Travis Demeritte is in right field and batting leadoff, while Orlando Arcia is the designated hitter and is batting ninth against Brewers right-hander Freddy Peralta on Monday. Acuna has played in only 10 games this year while getting a late start to the season as he recovered from a torn ACL last year, but he's hit well when he's been on the field, going 11-for-39 with two home runs, five RBI and five stolen bases.

  • MRI Comes Back Clean For Ronald Acuna Jr., Remains Day-To-Day

    Atlanta Braves Ronald Acuna Jr. (groin) underwent an MRI on Saturday, returning negative. He is "day-to-day" with groin soreness. "It's the best news possible," Braves manager Brian Snitker said. "There was nothing big. 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." His surgically repaired knee hasn't been a problem. Acuna is not expected to play in the series finale against the San Diego Padres but could return Monday versus the Milwaukee Brewers. Fantasy managers will have Acuna back sometime next week. William Contreras has served as the team's designated hitter for the last two games while Acuna has been sidelined.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Remains Out, Not Starting Saturday

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (groin) isn't in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the San Diego Padres. He is dealing with groin soreness and remains day-to-day. The 24-year-old superstar will miss his third consecutive game. Marcell Ozuna will start in left field while William Contreras serves as the team's designated hitter. Contreras went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Friday's 11-6 loss to the Padres. The 24-year-old makes an intriguing DFS option at catcher and can be used as a streamer in Saturday's slate. Contreras is slashing .237/.311/.405 with four homers, 12 RBI, and six runs over six games in 2022.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Dealing With Groin Injury

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (groin) is being held out of Wednesday's game against the Boston Red Sox. According to Braves manager Brian Snitker, Acuna tweaked his groin during Tuesday's game. Snitker stated that the team is hoping it won't be a lingering issue that would lead to Acuna landing on the injured list. At this point, we should consider Acuna day-to-day, but it sounds like a stint on the injured list could be a possibility. The 24-year-old superstar made his season debut in late April after a long recovery from a torn ACL. Over 10 games this year, he's slashing .282/.391/.487 with two home runs, five stolen bases, five RBI and four runs.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Not In Wednesday's Lineup

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox. Acuna was favoring his surgically repaired leg on Tuesday, but we hope this is just a normal day of rest for the 24-year-old superstar. It's something to keep an eye on. With Acuna resting, Travis Demeritte will start in right field and hit ninth against Red Sox right-hander Nathan Eovaldi, while Orlando Arcia serves as the designated hitter and bats eighth in the lineup. Acuna will be a must-start when he returns to action, as he's gone 11-for-39 with two home runs, five RBI and five stolen bases in his first 10 games after a late start to the season. Arcia and Demeritte will both be deep DFS dart throws for Wednesday's slate of action.
