A source close to Ronald Acuña Jr. (abdominal strain) told me he's feeling “mucho mejor” (much better!) after hitting in the cage yesterday; expects to do some work today too. Hopes to play on Friday at home vs. Arizona. But as manager Brian Snitker stated, his status will be monitored "day to day."

Freddie Freeman on Ronald Acuña's injury (abdominal strain): “It's always a concern when someone leaves the game, but with the news that he has a mild strain; not going on the IL that was big for us, so we'll see in a couple of days where we are.”

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Freddie Freeman on his contract negotiations with the Braves: “There's no negotiations; there is nothing going on. I'm worried about Taillon tonight.” Freeman added he was not frustrated or worried, and that he does not think he will have any more talks in-season.
