Overall, Acuna ranks first in the majors in OPS (1.373), homers (seven), hits (26), slugging percentage (.887) and runs scored (21). He’s second in average (.419) and RBIs (16). He’s scored a run in each of the Braves’ last 10 games. He scored at least twice in five consecutive games from April 11-15.
The Braves had a scare Sunday night when Acuna suffered an abdominal strain while on the bases. He underwent an MRI Monday that revealed it was a mild strain and he’s considered day to day. It’s a huge relief for the player and team that Acuna will avoid a stint on the injured list.
