Braves outfielder Ronald Acuña exited Sunday afternoon’s game against the Red Sox due to knee and lower back pain, the club announced. Acuña stumbled after crossing the first base bag attempting to beat out a ground ball in the top of the seventh inning. Here’s video of the play:
The injury looked worse than vague knee and lower back pain. Acuña will certainly undergo testing and the Braves should provide more information on his status later tonight or on Monday.
Acuña went 1-for-3 with a walk before exiting. In his first 129 major league plate appearances, he’s hitting .265/.326/.453 with five home runs, 13 RBI, and 19 runs scored.
