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
