Every Braves fan is holding their breath with this news.
Ronald Acuna is just 19-years-old and has the potential to be a star.
He has already made his way up to Triple-A and we should see him make his big-league debut in 2018.
However, he is currently playing in the Arizona Fall League and was hit by a pitch in the hand on Thursday. Acuna was in obvious pain.
Ronald Acuña just got drilled in the hand with a mid-90s heater and he's in agony. #Braves— Josh Norris (@jnorris427) October 12, 2017
He was also removed from the game.
Hopefully he is okay and he will be playing again in a few days. As for now, it's just a contusion and not a break, which is obviously great news.
It will be disappointing if he can't play the rest of the AFL season, but obviously his long-term health is most important.
