Acuna exits after fouling ball off leg; X-rays OK


Atlanta Braves All-Star Ronald Acuna Jr. left Friday’s game with the Washington Nationals in the fourth inning after fouling a ball off his leg near his ankle.

Acuna fell to the ground and appeared to be in considerable pain, as manager Brian Snitker and members of the training staff came out to check on him.

Acuna was helped off the field, unable to put any weight on his left leg, assisted by Snitker and a trainer.

Acuna, the 2018 Roookie of the Year, is batting .286 with 11 home runs and 22 RBIs this season.
