It’s looking like the Atlanta Braves will soon have 20-year-old superstar outfielder Ronald Acuña back in the fold as his recovery process moves into the final stages.
According to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Acuña will soon begin a rehab assignment and should be back in the majors soon after that.
Acuna has done 2 days of increased activity in workouts in Florida, ramping up towards a rehab assignment sooner than later. Still no specific date, but it'll be real soon, then should not be too long after that before he rejoins #Braves.

Acuña suffered a knee injury back in late May and has been on the DL since then. If you remember, the injury at first appeared to be one that could threaten Acuña’s season (watch here), but thankfully he escaped with minor damage.
Before being injured, Acuña was hitting .265/.326/.453 with five home runs in 117 at-bats on the season.
