At 20, Acuna joins Braves as youngest player in majors

CINCINNATI (AP) No break-in period needed for 20-year-old Ronald Acuna Jr.

Promoted by the Atlanta Braves from Triple-A, the youngest player in the majors was put into the starting lineup Wednesday night, batting sixth and playing left field against Cincinnati.

"I'm not worried about too much," Acuna said through a translator. "I'm just going to give it my best effort and leave it all out on the field. I'm trying to approach it like a minor league game at the major league level."
