The Braves got off to a hard start to their 2021 season, leading many to question if PECOTA was right in projecting them to end up third in the NL East.
Braves righting the ship, ever so gradually.
Acuña had to do with the only constant for the Braves early this season, as he was leading them at an unsustainable pace. Ever since, a few other notable Atlanta sluggers have pitched in, notably Freddie Freeman and Austin Riley. Freemans battle to get back above the Mendoza line has been well-publicized, and he wants to stay there for the remainder of the 2021 campaign.
The Braves are 5-5 in their last ten games and have actually dealt with a lot of injuries just recently. Ozzie Albies returned, as well as Acuña, their absence was well-marked with the Braves struggles in a multi-game stretch. Not to point out, without Max Fried and Mike Soroka near the top of their rotation, Atlantas pitching has suffered.
Heres the hoping they get healthy soon, and Acuñan avoids additional damage.

The Atlanta Braves evaded a bullet on Sunday, with Ronald Acuña staying in the game after an agonizing hit by pitch.
Acuña was hurt not too long ago with a stomach pressure, however prevented the injured list. Any hit by pitch near the low end of the bat runs the risk of extreme injury to the hand or wrist, most notably a potential fracture. With this in mind, Acuña dodged a bullet, as he appears fine after remaining in the video game versus the Arizona Diamondbacks in the first of their doubleheader set on Sunday.
