LEADING OFF: Braves’ Acuña uncertain vs struggling Yanks

Braves star Ronald Acuña Jr. is uncertain for the opener of a two-game series at Yankee Stadium after an MRI revealed a mild abdominal strain. Acuña was injured diving back into first base on a pickoff throw Sunday night in a 13-4 win over the Chicago Cubs. Atlanta was off Monday, giving the the 23-year-old a day to recover. The All-Star outfielder is off to a blistering start, hitting .419 with a major league-leading seven homers and 16 RBIs. Also, the Minnesota Twins hope to resume their season after COVID-19 issues postponed three of their games.
