The Braves signed top prospect Ronald Acuna, of Venezuela, in 2014.

Braves-Reds lineup: Will Acuna’s jersey number prove to be lucky?

Prized prospect Ronald Acuna will make his major league debut when the Braves meet the Reds at Great American Ball Park. Game time is 6:40 p.m. on Fox Sports Southeast.

Acuna will bat sixth in the lineup and wear jersey No. 13.

The Reds have won the first two games of the four-game series, and Acuna’s recent improvement at the plate at Triple-A Gwinnett, combined with Preston Tucker hitting .217 (13-for-60) over the past 15 games, with one homer and 18 strikeouts, led to the move to promote Acuna. 

Here is the Braves’ lineup for Wednesday’s game: 

CF Ender Inciarte

2B Ozzie Albies

1B Freddie Freeman

RF Nick Markakis

3B Johan Camargo

LF Ronald Acuna

SS Dansby Swanson

C Carlos Perez

P Matt Wisler
