The Braves are listing Acuna as day-to-day ahead of Thursday's game.

It appears as though Acuna could be back in the lineup for Thursday's series opener versus Colorado, though it wouldn't come as a surprise to see manager Brian Snitker give him at least one day off following Wednesday's scare. During his first at-bat of the night, Acuna was drilled on the elbow by a Jose Urena fastball. He initially stayed in the game but was removed prior to the second inning. Following the contest, he also received X-Rays, which came back negative.

And after the stretch that Ronald Acuna has been on, hitting the rookie phenom square on the elbow is certainly going to garner a great deal of attention. With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the performances that stood out from a busy day around the league.

1) Abreu Drives in ThreeAs far as first baseman go, Jose Abreu doesn’t exactly stand out as an elite option. Of course playing for the White Sox doesn’t help his cause, but Abreu and his production don’t just “jump off the page at you”. But while he may not be a difference maker, his production his steady and quite useful. On Wednesday, that continued as Abreu went 3 for 5 with a two run homer and three RBI. For the season, he is hitting .268 with 21 home runs and 73 RBI. Those aren’t numbers that will win you your league, but they do provide a solid statistical backbone to your team]]> 5273124 Thu, 16 Aug 2018 8:42:01 EDT rotoprofessor
