One day after Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna was hit by a pitch to start the team's game against the Miami Marlins, there's good news regarding the 20-year-old rookie's injury scare.

Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto (11) stands between pitcher Jose Urena (62) and Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker (43) as the dugouts empty after Urena hit the Braves' Ronald Acuna Jr. with a pitch during the first inning on August 15, 2018.

Urena and Braves manager Brian Snitker were ejected. "Makes no sense; just because a player is having fun playing the game, swinging the bat incredibly well obviously; that just makes no sense".

I'm also hoping that Marlins manager Don Mattingly had nothing to do with this. "Fastest pitch he's thrown all year and it was clearly intentional and it wasn't right", Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman said.
