According to Marly Rivera of ESPN, Ronald Acuña Jr.’s training team has set up a rough timeline for the return of the Braves superstar:
I spoke to Ronald Acuña's trainers at the Alex Salazar Academy in Barquisimeto, Venezuela. Acuña is hopeful for a May return after rehabbing and working out extensively in the winter. Of course, all depends on his progress this spring. Video of Acuña’s BP:https://t.co/qblLf8WmcJ

This isn’t surprising; even though Acuña has looked like the monster he is during his offseason workout program, I don’t expect the Braves to rush him back into action — nor should they. Acuña is an exceptional talent, and I don’t believe in increasing his risk of re-injury in April. He will be just fine when he returns to the diamond. This video was from October before the Braves even won the World Series:

May sounds about right for a return; it should give Ronald plenty of time to rehab and maybe take a few cuts on a rehab assignment. One thing’s for sure, I’m very excited to watch the kid play baseball again.
