Braves: Ronald Acuña is fine and will lead off in Game 1

Ronald Acuña Jr. was held out of the final game of the season with wrist soreness.

That immediately had me, and the rest of Braves Country, imagining the worst. Remember, it was the wrist that landed Acuña on the IL about a month ago. However, we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief today, as Brian Snitker told the media that Acuña is fine, and that there is nothing that will prevent him from hitting leadoff.

That should be music to the ears of Braves’ fans everywhere. Not only is Acuña Atlanta’s most talented player, but he also dominated in last year’s NLDS, posting a .444 batting average with three doubles and one homer — good for an eye-popping 1.454 OPS. He’ll look to continue that success tomorrow against Trevor Bauer and the Reds.
