It initially appeared Ronald Acuña Jr. could be headed for an extended IL stint after fouling a ball off of his foot. Thankfully, he avoided any fractures, but Acuña still arrived riding a scooter the next day and didn’t fly with the team to Philadelphia.

However, according to Brian Snitker, Acuña has made substantial progress since yesterday and will arrive in Philadelphia before Thursday’s game. There’s no word yet on whether he will play, but the prognosis looks promising.

At the very least, we can expect Acuña back in the lineup at some point this weekend against the Reds.
