Braves' Acuna back in lineup after being plunked with pitch

ATLANTA (AP) Rookie star Ronald Acuna Jr. is back in the lineup for the Atlanta Braves, hitting leadoff one day after being plunked on the left arm by Miami's Jose Urena.

Acuna sent a text to Brian Snitker before the Braves manager even got to SunTrust Park, saying he felt good and was ready to go Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series against the Colorado Rockies.

The training staff signed off on Acuna returning to lineup after a CT scan on his elbow was normal. X-rays also were negative.
