Outfielder Ronald Acuna, the Braves’ top prospect, left Thursday’s Arizona Fall League game with a bruised forearm after he was hit by a mid-90s fastball from Tigers prospect Spencer Turnbull.

He finished the at-bat, but was replaced by Jared James after running the bases.

Acuna is the Braves’ consensus No. 1 prospect and Baseball America’s No. 10 overall.

Acuna has three hits in the first two games for Peoria. He reached base on a throwing error and scored earlier in the game Thursday.
