Today in spelling mistakes: Ron Roenicke’s jersey

6 Comments

Unbeknownst to Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, the name of his city was misspelled on his jersey as he stood in the dugout observing his team as they battled the Marlins.

Via ESPN’s Darren Rovell on Twitter:

It’s M-I-L-W-A-U-K-E-E, Ron, come on!

This brings back memories of the illustrious “Natinals” jerseys worn by Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Dunn back in 2009.

MLB.com’s Mark Bowman confirms a report from Daniel Álvarez Montes of EVTV Miami that the Braves are calling up outfield prospect Ronald Acuña from Triple-A Gwinnett.

The move is obviously much anticipated and expected, as Acuña is considered the top prospect in baseball among those who hadn’t been called up to the majors yet. Acuña has had a slow start with Gwinnett, as he’s batting only .215/.301/.277 in 73 plate appearances. However, he has turned things around somewhat in recent days, batting .379 with a double and a homer since April 17.

Acuña should be in Wednesday’s starting lineup against the Reds and he should be a lineup regular going forward. The expectations are high for Acuña, who signed with the Braves as an international free agent in July 2014.
