  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Swipes Three Bags Tuesday

    Headshot for Ronald Acuna

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. put his wheels on display in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Mets. Acuna Jr. went 2-for-3 with two singles, a walk, and three stolen bases. The reigning National League Most Valuable Player hasn't been as impactful as fantasy managers were hoping for early on, slashing .256/.383/.308 with no home runs, 12 runs scored, four RBI, and four stolen bases in 47 plate appearances. However, the season is very early and it is encouraging to see him staying aggressive on the base paths.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Back In Lineup Thursday

    Headshot for Ronald Acuna

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (knee) is slated to return to Grapefruit League action on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays. The reigning MVP will serve as the designated hitter and bat in his usual leadoff spot in his first spring game back after he experienced soreness in his right knee last week. Obviously, this is a welcome development, and hopefully he'll come away from the game without any soreness. Assuming so, he should continue to be the top overall pick in fantasy drafts with his unrivaled production across all categories.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Takes BP Again, Says Knee Is Fine

    Headshot for Ronald Acuna

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (knee) took live batting practice again in camp on Monday and said his knee is fine. Manager Brian Snitker said that he's just waiting on the team's medical staff to clear the reigning National League MVP to resume playing in spring training. The Braves are understandably being cautious with the star outfielder's right knee, which was previously surgically repaired. Acuna isn't dealing with any structural damage this time around, though, so he should be fine for Opening Day on March 28, as long as he doesn't have any setbacks with it once he resumes playing in the Grapefruit League. The 26-year-old can do anything on the baseball field and should be the first player selected in fantasy drafts this spring.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Taking Batting Practice Thursday

    Headshot for Ronald Acuna

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. took batting practice on Thursday and worked out on the field with the players who did not travel for the club's contest against the Boston Red Sox. The reigning NL MVP has been slowed by a knee injury this spring, and while he is still without a firm timetable to return, Braves skipper Brian Snitker is on record saying he doesn't believe the injury is anything to worry about while the superstar has been checked out by a doctor. The 26-year-old enjoyed a historic 2023 campaign that saw him become the first 40/70 hitter in MLB history with 41 home runs and 73 stolen bases. He also hit a hefty .337, finishing as the runner-up for the NL batting title. He remains the No. 1 player in fantasy baseball in all formats.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Still Expected To Be Ready For Opening Day

    Headshot for Ronald Acuna

    As planned, Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. met with Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles on Monday, and the doctor confirmed that there was irritation in the meniscus of Acuna's right knee. Acuna will slowly ramp back up baseball activities and is still expected to be ready for Opening Day. This is fantastic news for the consensus No.1 overall fantasy pick. Hopefully there are no setbacks along the way, but for now, we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief.

  • Braves GM "Highly Confident" Ronald Acuna Jr. Will Be Ready

    Headshot for Ronald Acuna

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (knee) has a great chance to be in the Opening Day lineup, according to the team's general manager Alex Anthopoulos. Anthopoulos was on MLB Network Radio on Sunday morning with Jon Morosi and said he was "highly confident" that Acuna would be in the team's Opening Day lineup. The reigning NL MVP's health has been a hot topic this offseason as he's been dealing with meniscus irritation in his surgically repaired right knee. The fact he's been dealing with irritation in the same knee where he tore his ACL back in 2021 is why there has been so much concern. The 26-year-old is heading to California this week to have his keen examined by a specialist but the Braves GM sounded confident that everything will work out. Acuna is coming off a sensational 2023 season in which he slashed .337/.416/.596 with 149 runs scored, 41 home runs, 106 RBI, and 73 stolen bases over 643 at-bats. He's so important to the Braves that they're going to be extremely cautious with him. We should find out more about his status following his visit with the knee specialist later this week.

  • MRI Recommended For Ronald Acuna Jr.'s Sore Knee

    Headshot for Ronald Acuna

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. had his sore right knee examined by a doctor on Friday and irritation was found in his meniscus. An MRI was recommended and Acuna now plans to travel to L.A. to see another doctor. As of now, the Braves are optimistic, expecting Acuna to be ready for opening day, however, fantasy managers and fans will be justifiably nervous as this is the same knee that he tore his ACL in back in 2021. This situation will be monitored closely so stay tuned for updates.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Being Checked By Doctor

    Headshot for Ronald Acuna

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (knee) is getting his sore right knee looked at by a doctor "just to make sure," manager Brian Snitker said. It's not an MRI exam, and Snitker also said, "I don't think it'll be anything." It may be nothing, but it doesn't hurt for the Braves and Acuna to get peace of mind this spring, especially considering that the 26-year-old superstar tore the ACL in the same knee back in 2021. The Braves scratched Acuna as a precaution from Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Baltimore Orioles, but he could be back in spring training games sooner than later if the exam doesn't turn up anything significant. Acuna broke records in 2023 and is elite across the board in all categories for fantasy managers as the top overall fantasy asset when he's healthy.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Scratched With Knee Soreness

    Headshot for Ronald Acuna

    Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. (knee) was scratched from Friday's Grapefruit League lineup against the Baltimore Orioles "as a precaution" due to right-knee soreness. While the injury isn't considered serious, it's certainly something to keep an eye on with the best player in baseball, especially after Acuna suffered a torn ACL in the same knee in 2021. The Braves aren't going to take any chances with the 26-year-old reigning National League MVP in spring training. If he's able to return to Atlanta's lineup in a few days, fantasy managers will be able to let out a collective sigh of relief. The Venezuelan outfielder should be the first player off the board in fantasy drafts after breaking records last year and leading the league in stolen bases (73), hits (217), runs (149), on-base percentage (.416), OPS (1.012) and total bases (383) while also hitting 41 homers and driving in 106 in 159 games.

  • Ronald Acuna Jr. Hitless In Spring Debut

    Headshot for Ronald Acuna

    Atlanta Braves right fielder Ronald Acuna Jr. made his spring debut in Sunday's 5-4 Grapefruit League loss to the Boston Red Sox. Batting in his typical leadoff spot, the reigning NL MVP didn't wait to get his spring season underway, swinging at the first pitch he saw from Boston righty Brayan Bello and grounding out to third. In the bottom of the third inning, Acuna came to the plate for the second time, and after seeing just one pitch again he sent a fly ball to right field off of Red Sox reliever Zack Kelly for an out. Though he ended the day 0-2, there are plenty of hits in the 4x All-Star's future. It will be a tall task to top his 2023 season after slashing .337/.416/.596 with 41 home runs, 106 RBI, 149 runs scored, and 73 stolen bases, but even if he falls somewhat short of that, there isn't another hitter that can match that kind of production in every category which is why he's the consensus No.1 overall pick in fantasy drafts.
