Report: The Braves player may be facing the end of his career due to a horrible injury…

Braves’ Ronald Acuña Jr. to Miss Rest of Season After Tearing ACL

Grant McAuley on X: "I feel awful. Ronald Acuña Jr. has walked off or bounced back quickly from several injury scares in his brief career. Sincerely hope this is another of those.

Acuña, 26, is one of the top players in Major League Baseball and the star of the Braves, a team that started the season as the second favorite to win the World Series. Despite losing Acuña in 2021, the Braves managed to get into the postseason with 88 wins and won their fourth championship.

Last season, Atlanta had the best record in the majors with 104 wins. Acuña was outstanding, hitting .337/.416/.596 with 41 home runs, 106 RBIs, and 73 stolen bases. He became the first player to finish a season with at least 40 home runs and 70 stolen bases, earning him a unanimous MVP award. However, the Braves were defeated by the Philadelphia Phillies in the division series for the second consecutive year.

As the star of the Braves, who began the season as the second favorite to win the World Series, Acuña, 26, is one of the best players in Major League Baseball. The Braves won their fourth championship in 2021 and advanced to the postseason with 88 victories, despite the loss of Acuña.

With 104 victories in the previous season, Atlanta had the best record in the majors. With a.337/.416/.596 batting line, 41 home runs, 106 RBIs, and 73 stolen bases, Acuña was fantastic. He won the MVP title without a doubt, becoming the first player to finish a season with at least 40 home runs and 70 stolen bases. Nevertheless, for the second year in a row, the Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Braves in the division series.

Despite having high expectations for the season, Acuña struggled in the first three months of play, much like many of his colleagues. He had a below-average defense and hit.250/.351/.365 in 49 games with 4 home runs, 15 RBIs, and 16 stolen bases.

Acuña informed reporters that the injury felt less severe than the one he had in 2018 before the team revealed that he would miss the season. Following the news, he shared a single, heartfelt message on social media that read “Sorry,” complete with crying emojis.

The Braves suffer a major loss with the loss of Acuña, who doubled to start Sunday’s 8-1 victory over the Pirates. After setting a record with a.501 slugging percentage in the previous season, the team’s offense has faltered. Even though Marcell Ozuna, the designated hitter, is among the top hitters in baseball, important players with OPS values below.750 include Matt Olson, Austin Riley, Ozzie Albies, and Michael Harris II.

Atlanta’s pitching has kept the team competitive despite offensive problems; with a 30-20 record, they are tied for second place in the National League with the Los Angeles Dodgers and six games behind the 38-16 Phillies in the NL East.

Free agent signing Reynaldo Alfaro and left-hander Chris Sale, who was acquired in a trade over the winter, have both had outstanding seasons for the Braves.  Lopez has the third-best ERA in the National League at 1.75. Following Strider’s Tommy John surgery in April, both have stepped up. Strider led baseball with 281 strikeouts in the previous season.

With a.293/.366/.552 line and 26 home runs, Acuña won the NL Rookie of the Year title in 2018. As a rookie, he had a significant impression. He inked one of the sport’s most team-friendly eight-year, $100 million contract extensions with two club options before to the following season.

Acuña had intended to work out a new agreement this past winter in order to get paid more commensurate with elite players, but negotiations broke down. As of right now, Acuña is without a baseball agent. Nevertheless, he just inked a contract to manage his marketing and sponsorships with Rimas Sports, whose primary agent was decertified by the MLB Players Association.
