Braves manager Brian Snitker on Ronald Acuña's abdominal strain: “Feels a lot belter; feels maybe like we dodged a bullet there. We'll see how he feels tomorrow. The good thing is that he feels a lot better.”

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

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.

Cashman: 'Better days are ahead' for Yankees (0:32)

GM Brian Cashman on the Yankees 5-10 start: "Clearly, we got to self-correct. And we look forward to doing that and proving anybody who's going to predict otherwise, proving them wrong. We understand why there are some doubts currently, and question marks, and there's a lot of head scratching on how the roster's currently performed thus far. But, it's 15 games. And it's 15 games I'd like to forget. The only way I'm going to forget them is doing something about in the next 15."

Brian Cashman on Yankees manager Aaron Boone: "I think we're all in the same boat with performance. Our record is reflective of our organization. Obviously, Aaron is a piece of that, as am I. He's doing everything he needs to do, and most importantly, supporting these guys. Because we trust our players, and we trust their abilities. And we trust over the course of time that will, as it normally does, correct itself with a lot more games under the belt."

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Brian Cashman after I asked whether he would have done things differently with pitching knowing what he knows now: "No. Again, you go to the marketplace. I know what was available in the wintertime and I'm very comfortable with that decision-making process. We have gotten out of the gate slowly. Our starting pitching obviously has not gone deep, outside Gerrit Cole. I think our starters will get us that consistently good performance every five days. It just hasn't happened on the outset."

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Brian Cashman on his main message today: "Want to acknowledge, obviously, our disappointing play. But also our message to our players, and therefore our fans, is we are going to fight our way out of that start. And, hopefully, by the end of the month, you'll see a more reflective record that gets us back on line and gets people's confidence back to where it should be."

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Yankees GM Brian Cashman after I asked what kind of team have the Yankees shown to be through the first 15 games of the 2021 season: "Right now, we would be a team that an opponent would want to play because we're not firing on all cylinders. Our strengths are not showing themselves right now. So if you had a chance to catch us right now, you're catching us at the right time. And we look forward to that changing."

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Brian Cashman on Aaron Hicks' 2021 start: "I think he represents a lot of our start. I think he's an example of many of our players throughout our squad. We have a 26-man roster, and you insert his name, you can take his name out and throw another name in, and you're going to get the same answer. It's below where he's capable of playing. And that's true of currently most of our roster right now."
