MLB rumors: Insider makes Braves trade deadline prediction after Ronald Acuna Jr. injury

For the second time in four seasons, the Atlanta Braves have lost outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. to a torn ACL. The first time it happened in 2021, the Braves knuckled down at the MLB trade deadline and swung a few big deals to propel them to a World Series title. Apparently, they are going to attempt to do the same thing this year.

Atlanta was able to land four outfielders in the former instance, acquiring Joc Pederson, Jorge Soler, Eddie Rosario and Adam Duvall. While the Braves probably won't be digging that deep over the month-and-a-half, they may try for one or two outfielders while also potentially trying to trade for a back-end-of-the-rotation starting pitcher, via Jim Bowden of The Athletic.
