Acuña sits again for Sunday’s series finale against Brewers

Braves continue to be cautious with young outfielder.

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Ronald Acuña Jr. is out of the Atlanta Braves’ lineup for the second straight day as Brian Snitker is opting to play it safe with the young outfielder. Acuña strained a groin while legging out an infield single in Friday night’s game. He sat out Saturday but the thought was that it was a minor injury and that he would be able to play on Sunday. However, the Braves are going to be cautious with an off day on Monday and will give Acuña three full days to recover.

Charlie Culberson gets his second straight start in left field in place of Acuña. Kurt Suzuki is also back behind the plate for Sunday’s game.

The Brewers made a flurry of roster moves prior to Sunday’s game including reinstating outfielder Lorenzo Cain from the disabled list. He will bat third and play center field.
