Ronald Acuna Beaned by Jose Urena

Atlanta Braves rookie, Ronald Acuna Jr., was hit Wednesday by Jose Urena of the Miami Marlins.

Why did Urena bean Acuna? Because Acuna had the audacity to play baseball well, of course.

Acuna has five home runs in his last five games, including leadoff homers in each of the last three, so to lead off Wednesday’s game, Urena obviously took it upon himself to hit Acuna.

Hitting someone with a pitch on purpose is no joke and is reprehensible. Urena tried to hit Acuna in the back, but Acuna tried to get out of the way. In the process, Acuna was hit in the elbow with the pitch and was soon removed from the game with an injury.

Acuna has played in 67 games this year and has performed at superstar levels. The 20-year-old outfielder is slashing .288/.346/.576 (145 wRC+) with 19 home runs. It looks as though he will become a big name in baseball very soon.

Acuna, who has gotten very comfortable in the leadoff spot lately, will hopefully make a quick recovery from this injury. In better news, his pursuit of a home run record will still be intact upon his return.

Get well soon, kid!
