The Braves have activated rookie outfielder Ronald Acuã from the disabled list. He had been out for about a month due to an mild ACL sprain sustained while running out a ball to first and getting flung wildly, hither and yon. He’ll be back in the lineup tomorrow as the Braves take on the Cards in St. Louis.
Acuña is hitting .265/.326/.453 with five home runs, 13 RBI, and 19 runs scored in his first 129 big league plate appearances.
In other Braves injury news, they have placed pitcher Brandon McCarthy on the 10-day DL, retroactive to June 25, with right knee tendinitis. There weren’t any reports that he had been suffering from that, but the world is full of secrets and mysteries to which not all of us are privy and perhaps we should learn to embrace rather than fear the unknown.
