Ronald Acuna Jr. has been a point of tremendous confidence since returning from an injury in late April that sidelined him for almost a year. The Atlanta Braves are trying to win as much as they can right now.
The Braves are doing all that they can to catch the New York Mets, while having to watch the Philadelphia Phillies, who are currently on their best winning streak, sneak up from behind. The team is keeping itself busy with inside jokes to boost morale. Ronald Acuna Jr. seems to have a pretty successful one going with Trea Young of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks.
