Acuna missed 11 games last month with left-wrist inflammation. The Braves don’t play again until Wednesday, when they’ll open the postseason by hosting the Reds in a best-of-three wild-card round at Truist Park.
“That wrist thing was just biting a little bit,” manager Brian Snitker said after the game, which the Braves lost 9-1. “It wasn’t bad, he wanted to play. He just said it was a little sore and there’s no reason for him to play. He can get treatment today, tomorrow and the next day and be ready to go.”
