The Atlanta Braves completed a wild comeback win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night, but not before Ronald Acuña Jr. suffered an injury. Acuña took a 97-mph sinker to the elbow in the sixth inning, forcing him to exit the game.

He did undergo X-rays shortly after, which came back negative. He is now day-to-day and will hopefully make a quick return.
