Ozzie Albies News
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies is on the bench on Saturday. Atlanta will take on the New York Mets and right-handed starter Carlos Carrasco but will do so without the 24-year-old in the lineup. Albies has been plenty productive this season, hitting .259 with a .311 on-base percentage, 30 home runs, and 20 stolen bases in 682 plate appearances. Orlando Arcia is batting second and starting in place of Albies at second base on Saturday. Arcia is hitting .182 with a .238 on-base percentage, two home runs, and a stolen base in 84 plate appearances this season. Fantasy managers are probably best off looking elsewhere for streaming help.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies made history for himself during Wednesday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. He went 1-for-4 with a home run and 3 RBI in the 9-2 on Wednesday. That home run marked his 30th of the season, while he also knocked in 100 runs on the campaign. The 24-year-old has now put together his first ever 30-homer, 100-RBI season in the big leagues. It has been an incredible season for Albies. There is still time for him to add even more, but this is a huge accomplishment for him.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies is on the verge of setting a new career high at the plate. On Tuesday, Albies went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run to help beat the Arizona Diamondbacks. The 24-year-old now has 29 home runs and is so close to his first ever 30-homer, 100-RBI campaign. There is still roughly a week of games remaining, so Albies could very well accomplish this task.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies had a disappointing 2020 season, slashing .271/.306/.466 with six homers and three stolen bases while dealing with a right wrist bone bruise that cost him a month. His 30.96 ADP suggests that gamers are willing to give the 24-year-old a pass, but is that wise? His plate discipline cratered, with a K% spike to 24.2 while his BB% declined to 4%. His career-worst 13.3 SwStr% suggests that the higher strikeouts could continue moving forward. His expected batting average was just .240 last year as well. Albies's average exit velocity on airborne balls was virtually unchanged from 2019 (91.2 mph vs. 91.4), ranking below-average. His FB% increased to 44.8 (36.6 in 2019), but it came at the expense of line drives (25.5 to 13.8). As such, he's not hitting the quality or quantity of fly balls for a power surge. Albies has never stolen 20 bases in an MLB season and saw his Statcast Sprint Speed decline by half a tick last year (28.1 ft./sec vs. 28.6 in 2019). The Braves hit Albies in every lineup spot save third in 2020, so he doesn't have a guaranteed role to inflate his counting stats. Albies just doesn't do enough of anything to justify his current price tag.
