Albies on Acuña: “It's hard to go through this again”

The Curacao second baseman of the Braves understands what the Venezuelan is going through

The second baseman from Curacao for the Atlanta Braves, Ozzie Albyes, already had a little time to process a little what the devastating news of Ronald Acuña Jr.'s torn cruciate ligament meant and spoke to the media about it this Monday prior to the game against the Washington Nationals.

“(It must be) broken. It's hard to go through this again,” Albies told the Bally Sports cameras. “It's not easy at all.”

However, the Willemstad native stated that he understands what Acuña is going through. That, considering that he has also suffered serious injuries; such as, for example, the fracture of the big toe of his right foot that he suffered during the first half of April.

“I know how you feel, I mean, you have to keep your mind strong and follow every step of the rehabilitation so you can come back in better condition next year.”

In that sense, he highlighted how fundamental the psychological aspect is, seeing your team and not being able to contribute in the way you want. Finally, he cataloged that Acuña is a five-tool player, a vital piece for the Braves and that he hopes he will come back stronger from this situation.
