Fantastic news came from the Braves manager at Wednesday’s press conference before the NLDS. Ronald Acuña Jr., who the Braves opted to sit out for the final week of the regular season with a groin injury, is expected to be 100%.
Ronald Acuña worked out yesterday and had no issues with his hip. Snit said he expects him 100 percent tomorrow.

The Braves went through an extended sim game yesterday, and Acuña was not showing any signs of the injury, Jeff Schultz of The Athletic reports. Snitker said the same thing in regards to Freddie Freeman. He was not limited at all during workouts or the game.
This should allow all of Braves Country to take a sigh of relief. There was some reason to worry following the wave of injuries that struck the Braves at the end of the year. However, as long as these two are healthy in the lineup, Atlanta should feel confident against anyone.
