The Atlanta Braves got some good news today when it was announced that their star outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr., who had been out since early July last year with a torn ACL, would be making his return from the injured list.
A brief six-game rehab assignment was all the proof the Braves needed that he was back in full force and ready to compete again.
This morning, the Braves shared a brief video of him taking a big swing during batting practice in spring training, hyping up his return and letting all of Braves country know that their superstar has finally returned.

Could you possibly be more excited if you’re a Braves fan?
The team just won the World Series, all while Acuna was on the shelf.
Now, their superstar outfielder, who hasn’t seen Major League action since tearing his ACL in Miami last year, is back and ready to help them repeat as World Series champions.
They already were a major threat to repeat their success from a year ago, but with Acuna back, the team is finally in full force again and ready to take their shot at another title.
The Braves are off to a tough start in 2022, having gone 8-11 through their first 19 games, but Acuna’s return should give them a nice little jolt.
This lineup was already one of the best in the business, but with Acuna back, pitching to them just got a little bit harder.
