The Atlanta Braves had a major bad news.

The Braves updated the results of the examination of outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr., who was injured during an away game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, on their official social media on the 27th (Korea Standard Time).

An MRI examination of Acuña revealed a complete rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of the left knee.

He is scheduled to undergo surgery to treat it, and will not play the rest of the 2024 season.

Acuña Jr., who suffered the same injury to his right knee back in 2021, spent the second half of the year and was able to return during the 2022 season.

This time, he injured the other knee and couldn’t play the rest of the season.

Acuña was injured while running in the top of the first inning of an away game against Pittsburgh at PNC Park.

He got on base with a double and fell down with a tangled step while returning home while taking the lead at second base, complaining of pain in his left knee in the process.토토사이트 추천

At the time, he complained of pain in his knee but woke up and walked off the field on his own.

The Braves had announced that he had been replaced in the game due to “left knee soreness.” However, the examination revealed that it was a more serious injury.

Acuña, who won the National League MVP last season with 41 home runs and 73 steals, was batting .250 with an on-base percentage of 0.351 with an extra-base percentage of 0.365 with four home runs and 15 RBIs this season.
