Atlanta Braves star Ronald Acuna Jr. went 1-for-3 with a double in his first rehab appearance Tuesday night for Triple-A Gwinnett.
Acuna batted leadoff for the visiting Stripers, flying out to center field in his first at bat, doubling off the wall in right-center in his second and then finishing his evening with a groundout to third.
He was replaced in right field in the sixth inning.
Pitching for Jacksonville was 23-year-old righty Max Meyer, ESPN’s 33rd-ranked overall prospect.
Acuna is rehabbing a torn right ACL that ended his 2021 season. He opened this season on the 10-day injured list and had been working out at the club’s spring training facility in North Port, Florida, before beginning the rehab assignment Tuesday in Jacksonville.
