929 Braves insider Joe Patrick joined Dukes & Bell and talked about Ronald Acuna Jr.’s walk-off hit last night, plus what’s the timetable on Austin Riley’s return.

Patrick talked about the series Acuna had.

 “You can’t really write the script much better for him.” Patrick said “He was all smiles, he enjoys any success he has against the Marlins as he got hit once again, so it being able to hand them the loss always makes him happy.”

When asked about Austin Riley’s timetable for return.

 “I think he’ll be a big part of this team as soon as he’s healthy.” Patrick said “This injury has served as his time off for him to hit the reset and clear his head. He will be able to get some swings in, and the Braves will probably be thrusting him back into the team as soon as he shows he’s healthy and hitting again.”
