Video: Ronald Acuna Jr. Carted Off Field After Suffering Brutal Right Leg Injury


Ronald Acuna Jr. of the Atlanta Braves severely injured his right leg in today's game against the Miami Marlins. The outfielder tried to make a leaping grab on Jazz Chisholm's fly ball, but was not successful in his efforts. After trying to walk off the field, Acuna had to sit down and was clearly in a lot of pain. From there, Acuna was then carted off the field and was noticeably upset in the process.

The video of the event is attached below.

The 23-year-old outfielder is a huge player for the Braves, so if he's out for the long-term, it will be extremely negative for the team. In 81 games this season, he has 24 home runs, 52 RBIs and is hitting at a .281 average. Therefore, it is essentially impossible to replace him.

All we can hope for is that the injury is not too serious. Yet, seeing him in that much pain makes this sadly seem unlikely.
