Braves Rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. Leaves With Knee & Lower Back Pain

Atlanta Braves rookie outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. left Sunday’s game against the Boston Red Sox with an injury to his left knee.

Acuna suffered the injury in the seventh inning while beating an infield single. The 20-year-old immediately went down to the ground but was able to walk off the field under his own power.

The Braves later announced that Acuna exited the game with knee and lower back pain.

“We haven’t really gotten any reports, except just that he’s sore,” manager Brian Snitker said. “He’s being looked at, so we’ll know more.”

Acuna finished Sunday 1-for-3 with a run scored in the Braves’ 7-1 victory. He is batting .265 with five home runs and 13 RBIs in 29 games this season for Atlanta. READ MORE>
