Some great injury news for Ronald Acuña and Ozzie Albies today.

Ronald had his wrist examined his week and will be examined again in Atlanta today or tomorrow. Acuña was never placed on the Injured List. He has been out of the lineup since Tuesday. The fact that Ronald remained with the team and is being examined today or tomorrow in Atlanta is clearly better than visiting Dr. Andrews. But he remains ruled out for Miami this weekend.

Also, Ozzie Albies’s wrist is coming along as well.

Ozzie took part in a practice session today and is apparently feeling no pain. Albies has been on the Injured List since August 5th and is eligible to return tomorrow. However, he is expected back with the Braves no earlier than next week.

This is excellent news for a team on a three-game losing streak. Ender Inciarte has two singles in nine plate appearances and Braves’ second basemen have slashed .200/.220/.400 in their stead.
