NORTH PORT, Fla. — After reporting right knee soreness, Braves superstar Ronald Acuña Jr. went to be evaluated by a doctor, manager Brian Snitker said after Friday’s 3-1 loss to the Orioles at CoolToday Park.

Snitker said Acuña — who was scratched from Friday’s lineup “as a precaution,” the Braves said — might’ve started feeling the soreness after he got caught in a rundown between second base and third base in Thursday’s contest.


“They’re gonna check him out,” Snitker said. I don’t think it’ll be anything. It’s probably one of those things that if it was during the season, he’d play. But still, we wanted to get it looked at, if it was enough that he said something.”
