The 8-11 Atlanta Braves haven't started their title defense they way they planned. This team knows help is on the way, though, as star outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. has been making progress in his recovery from a torn ACL suffered last July.

The latest update on Acuña is amazing news.

Ronald Acuña Return

Acuña has officially been reinstated from the Braves' injured list, clearing the way for his MLB return. He's set to join the Braves' active roster after looking his old self in the minor leagues.

This is nothing short of a massive development and it could be the boost this team needs to jump start its 2022 campaign. Acuña was on his way to career year before his devastating injury, earning an All-Star nod while recording 24 home runs, 52 RBI and 17 stolen bases in the first half of the 2021 season.

It'll likely take a little time for Acuña to really get back in the swing of things, but he's already slotted for outfield action, and it's great to see him so far along in his recovery.

Atlanta is at home on Thursday night against the Chicago Cubs before heading on a seven-game road trip against the Texas Rangers and New York Mets.
