Just when you think you are finished with outfielder injuries, you get taken out at the ankles...

Ronald Acuña is out of the game with an apparent ankle injury running out a ground ball in the seventh inning. Originally, it was called a base hit, but was overturned to be an out upon further review. Ronald was able to walk off under his own power, so perhaps removal from the game was a precautionary measure.

As Paul Byrd mentioned, this is not his first ankle injury, although the play did look similar to the injury at Fenway in 2018. Here is Ronald making his way off the field.

In the game, there was a musical chairs act that followed in the field. Ehire Adrianza, who started at third, and moved once to right field, is now in center field. Austin Riley, who started on the bench, then moved to third base, and now in right field. And Johan Camargo, who started in Gwinnett as a pinch hitter, is playing third base.

Talking Chop will advise as updates become available. Get well soon, Ronnie.
