Ozzie Albies News
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies (finger) said he would have been ready for the National League Championship Series had the team advanced, and he hasn't had any restrictions during the offseason. Albies suffered a fractured pinkie in mid-September and was unable to play in the first round of the postseason. It was a frustrating season overall for the 26-year-old, as he played in only 64 games and hit .247/.294/.409 with a career-low .703 OPS, eight home runs, 35 RBI, 36 runs scored and three stolen bases in 269 plate appearances. Albies also missed time with a broken foot in 2022, but he should be all systems go for Opening Day this year and could easily bounce back for fantasy managers. He should be treated as a top-five second baseman on draft day.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies (finger) is out of his cast and is building back his hand strength. He'll be with the team for the National League Division Series against the Philadelphia Phillies this week, but it's unlikely that he'll be on the active roster. Albies is dealing with a fractured pinkie finger and remains on the 10-day injured list. The 25-year-old hasn't played for over three weeks, and the Braves will be hoping that he can be ready if they advance to the NL Championship Series next week. If Albies is unable to make the roster for the NLDS, it's likely that Orlando Arcia will continue to handle the regular second base duties for the Braves against the Phillies this week.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies (pinkie) took ground balls with a smaller cast on Sept. 30 that allowed him more mobility and the chance to get back on the field and stay in shape with the hopes of making a return during the postseason. Albies fractured is right pinkie finger sliding into second base against the Philadelphia Phillies on Sept. 17 in just his second game since returning from a fractured left foot earlier in the season. He will not play in the final three-game series of the regular season this week against the Miami Marlins, but there's still a chance he could contribute in the playoffs, barring any setbacks. The 25-year-old has just 247 at-bats in 2022, hitting .247/.294/.409 with eight homers, 35 RBI, 36 runs and three stolen bases.
After a monstrous 2021 season, last year was something of a lost campaign for Albies following foot and finger injuries that limited him to just 64 games. He is set to be a full go for Spring Training and the Braves will be hoping Albies can replicate his 2021 season when he hit .259/.310/.488 with 30 homers, 106 RBI, 103 runs and 20 steals. He was one of only three players to be in the 30/20 club with 100+ RBI and runs (along with Jose Ramirez and Shohei Ohtani). In limited time last year, Albies still had eight homers, 35 RBI, 36 runs and three stolen bases and with an ADP ~47, fantasy managers seem to be concerned of more missed time in 2023. It's easy to forget Albies is still only going to be 26 years old on Opening Day given this will be his seventh season in the Majors and he's played at least 156 games in three of the last five seasons (missing half of the shortened 2020 season with a wrist injury). Albies is set to have a bounceback year and could easily find himself as the number one second baseman in fantasy by the end of 2023.
