The official diagnosis of Ronald Acuña Jr.’s injury to his right knee

The Atlanta Braves can breathe a sigh of relief as star outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. has been diagnosed with only an irritation in the meniscus of his right knee. The team confirmed that there is no serious injury, and Acuña Jr. is hoping to be ready for Opening Day.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache examined Acuña Jr. in California and determined that the 2023 National League MVP winner will not require significant time off. The plan is for Acuña Jr. to gradually increase his baseball activities in preparation for the start of the season.

The Venezuelan outfielder experienced discomfort in his knee during Spring Training, prompting the medical staff to conduct an MRI. Fortunately, the results were positive, indicating that the injury is not a major concern.

Acuña Jr. had surgery on the same knee in 2021, causing him to miss the second half of the season and the Braves’ World Series championship. Despite this setback, he had a remarkable 2023 season, setting records, hitting 40-70, and unanimously winning the National League MVP award.

“We hope he’s ready for Opening Day,” stated Braves president of baseball operations Alex Anthopoulos in an interview with MLB.com in Spanish. The team and fans alike are optimistic that Acuña Jr. will be back on the field when the season kicks off.
