Ronald Acuña is taking the league by storm on his rookie season, proving everyone that he has the desire, talent, and determination to become one of future MLB's superstars. And he is taking it very seriously.

Just after the gruesome scenes of his knee injury on Sunday while playing against the Boston Red Sox, many feared that maybe his season would be over after how awful the injury looked like at first instance.


But luckily for the Atlanta Braves and for Acuña, he only suffered a mild ACL sprain in his left knee and a lower back contusion after tripping while running past first base. According to the Atlanta Braves, he will remain at the 10-day disabled list to determine how much time will the Venezuelan remain on the sidelines.

But according to Mark Bowman from, Acuña wanted to play just the day after his injury, saying that he felt fine enough to play again on Monday:

I feel better than I did yesterday. I just thank God it wasn't worse than it was
