Braves announce Ronald Acuña Jr. has mild ACL sprain, place him on DL

Jesse Reed

Atlanta Braves superstar Ronald Acuña Jr. has been officially placed on the 10-day DL after an MRI showed a mild ACL sprain and knee contusion on his left knee, along with a lower back contusion.

The injuries occurred during Sunday’s game, when Acuña took an awkward fall, resulting in a brief hospital stay.

This is actually great news, because the injury initially appeared to be one that could have resulted in a much more serious aftermath, such as a torn ACL and potentially other knee ligaments.

Acuña is hitting .265/.326/.453 with five home runs in 117 at-bats on the season.
