This was the now deleted tweet from the Marlins. The horrific footage shows a very distraught and injured Acuna Jr. laying helpless on the warning track. Despite this, the @Marlins still thought it was suitable to share. Disgusting and disrespectful. Be better.
RONALD ACUÑA ha sido golpeado siete veces por los pitchers de los Marlins en esta temporada. La última anoche y el toletero venezolano tuvo que ser retenido para no pelear con el lanzador Anthony Bender en la séptima entrada.
Oh yeah it’s super believable that the @Marlins hit Acuña with all those pitches unintentionally when their official Twitter account tweeted this when he got injured. Unsportsmanlike, unprofessional, callous, and disappointing.
INF Jazz Chisholm Jr. hit the first inside-the-park home run of his career in the bottom of the 5th today. It’s the first inside-the-park home run for the Marlins since J.T. Riddle on May 29, 2018. It’s the first for the Marlins at home since J.T. Realmuto on Sept. 8, 2015.
Elation turns to concern after @j_chisholm3 hits an inside-the-park HR, and Ronald Acuña Jr. goes down awkwardly trying to make the catch.

Didn't tweet this earlier because I was waiting on Manfred to update the new transaction-less MiLB website. Jake Walters has been promoted by the Miami Marlins organizations to the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp of the Triple-A East league.
