Before Friday’s series opener against the Phillies, Brian Snitker provided the latest updates on Acuña and Albies, who can be activated from the IL whenever they are ready. Unfortunately, they are not, and it doesn’t look like they will be for at least a few more days.
Ronald Acuña’s wrist is feeling better, but he’s yet to even swing a bat. I would imagine that is critical to him returning. Brian Snitker said they will need to see him do it in consecutive days before putting him back in the lineup.
Brian Snitker added the team won't put any timetable on Ronald Acuña Jr.'s return until he's been able to swing the bat for a few days (consecutively). Acuña has yet to take any swings, but they're hoping he'll be able to do so soon. His wrist will be evaluated Saturday. #Braves

Albies also hasn’t swung a bat in a few days after starting to over a week ago. Like Acuña, Snitker says he is progressing, but that he will need to be pain free before being activated off the IL.
Snit says Acuña's wrist is progressing but he hasn't started swinging a bat as of yet. As for Albies, he took the last few days off of swinging but is progressing. Will need to be pain free from both sides of the plate before being activated. #Braves

The Braves have been able to survive so far, and luckily, they have a few off days coming up. But with the state of their current rotation, their winning ways are not sustainable without Acuña and Albies.
