Braves: Out­fielder Ron­ald Acuna Jr. agreed to a $100 mil­lion, eight-year con­tract. It’s the largest deal for a player un­der club con­trol with less than one year of ma­jor league ser­vice. The NL Rookie of the Year, Acuna agreed to a deal with two team options that if ex­er­cised would raise the value to $124 mil­lion over 10 years.

Cuba: The Cuban Base­ball Fed­er­a­tion is re­leas­ing its first group of play­ers able to sign con­tracts with Ma­jor League fran­chises, mean­ing some play­ers could be legally play­ing in the United States this fall as part of an his­toric deal be­tween Cuba and the ma­jor leagues.

In­di­ans: All-Star short­stop Fran­cisco Lin­dor will miss more time be­cause of a sprained left an­kle that has de­layed his sea­son de­but.
