Atlanta Braves star player Ronald Acuña Jr. won’t be in Friday’s lineup to face the San Diego Padres, but his absence won’t last long.
The Venezuelan did not play last Wednesday against the Red Sox due to groin discomfort, a problem that will take him out of the current champions’ offensive order for the second consecutive game, but the star outfielder told the media that he is feeling better and plans to return in the day on Saturday.
