The long wait is over for Atlanta Braves fans. That's right, after tearing his ACL last season and missing the start of the 2022 campaign, Ronald Acuna Jr. is back for the squad on Thursday.

The lineup for Atlanta's game was dropped early on, and Acuna is indeed back in the mix of things. Fans are fired up and understandably so.

Hearts broke all over the city when the right fielder went down with the knee injury. He's worked around the clock in his rehab and now it looks like he's ready to put on a show. All eyes will be on him for his first plate appearance.
