Even though he won’t be in the lineup Monday night, Ronald Acuña Jr. has passed all the tests to get back on the field and will likey play tomorrow, according to Brian Snitker.
Snit said Acuña passed all the tests while running the bases and completing other exercises today. If he recovers well, Acuña will likely play tomorrow.

Acuña has been dealing with a nagging groin injury, and tonight will be the fifth game he’s missed in a row. However, things look encouraging.
The Braves are struggling mightily right now, shown by their 16-19 record. Some of that is due to Acuña’s lack of availability. This team needs the all-around production he provides in each phase of the game. Without it, it will be difficult for them to turn this ship around.
