Braves Could Target Red Sox Slugger As Strong Ronald Acuna Jr. Replacement

The Atlanta Braves took a big hit when superstar outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. sustained a season-ending knee injury.

With that said, the Braves still are seen as one of the more notable forces in the National League and will be pushing their chips in as the July 30 Major League Baseball trade deadline nears.

While pitching remains a priority, it would be wise to find an outfield rental to mitigate the loss of their best player. The outfield market is light this summer but there are some options. Among them, Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill would be a logical target.
