We first discovered this a year ago, but it’s nice to know Coors Field didn’t sap Jeremy Guthrie of his sense of humor.

Upon being traded to the Royals today, Guthrie immediately sought to endear himself to his new team’s fanbase:

Hopefully, Guthrie is able to rebound back in the AL after his miserable stint with the Rockies. Getting to work in a pitcher’s park in a mediocre division should do him a lot of good.

Ronald Acuña’s CT scan comes back clean

The Braves announced late this morning that the CT scan on Ronald Acuña’s left elbow came back clear and he is considered day-to-day.

As you have all heard by now, Acuña was pulled from Wednesday night’s game against the Marlins after taking a Jose Urena pitch off his elbow in the bottom of the first inning in what was quite obviously an intentional plunking. Acuña  only suffered a bruise and some swelling. He missed all but that at bat of last night’s game and will likely sit out tonight’s game against the Rockies. It is expected that he’ll be back in action this weekend, however.

Acuña is batting .358/.425/.821 with 12 home runs, 24 RBI, and 25 runs scored over his last 25 games.
