Braves, newcomer Acuna face Reds' Bailey

The Atlanta Braves, off to an encouraging but not overwhelming start, decided to speed up the timetable a little and push the future of the franchise into the present.

Ronald Acuna Jr., rated the majors' best prospect by multiple scouting outlets and the winner of multiple minor league player of the year awards last season, is a minor leaguer no more.

Acuna, called up from Triple-A Gwinnett, moved into the Braves' lineup batting sixth and playing left field Wednesday night in Cincinnati. He is expected to be there again Thursday when the Braves and Reds close out their four-game series at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.
