The Braves lost Ronald Acuña on Friday after the outfielder fouled a ball off his left ankle. He was helped off the field and was in obvious pain as he headed to the clubhouse.

We will update as the club provides details on his status, but for now this is certainly unfortunate for Acuña and for the club. Ender Inciarte finished the at-bat and took over in center.

UPDATE - X-Rays on Acuña’s ankle came back negative. He is considered day-to-day.
