Second baseman Ozzie Albies, Acuna’s teammate and best friend, has been on the 10-day injured list with his own (right) wrist soreness because of a bone bruise that he tried playing through. Snitker said to this point, there’s no indication that Acuna’s soreness is similar to what Albies experienced.
“I’m not concerned until after they check him out,” Snitker said. “Then we’ll see. They’re going to have the doctors look at him tomorrow and we’ll have a little more for you tomorrow afternoon.”
Acuna, 22, had played in each of the Braves’ 18 games entering Tuesday. He’s hit .258 with four homers, nine RBIs and 12 runs scored. Acuna has caught fire since a slow start, including three home runs against the Phillies in Sunday’s doubleheader.
