Ozzie Albies News
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies cracked three hits Thursday versus the Phillies. He went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored. With 29 doubles in 2021, the sweet-swinging shortstop should easily pass his career-best of 43 back in 2019. Albies currently has a .263 batting average, 15 dingers, 63 RBI, and 13 stolen bases. The 24-year-old has been a bright spot for Atlanta this year as they sit four games back of the Mets in the AL East. Despite struggling earlier in the month, Albies has come back full force and must always be in the lineup when he takes the field for Atlanta.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies went 2-for-5 with a double and one RBI in a 7-5 loss to the Rays on Sunday. It was just his third multi-hit performance in the month of July, as he is slashing .235/.273/.314 over 13 games with two steals, seven RBI and six runs scored in that span. Despite the recent struggles, Albies has put up good numbers overall this year, as he's slashing .261/.322/.496 with 15 homers, 13 steals, 63 RBI and 55 runs scored over 90 games. He should be able to bounce back from a slow start to this month, and return to form as one of the top fantasy second basemen.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies (neck) is returning to the starting lineup on Friday against Miami Marlins right-hander Anthony Bass, and he will hit third in the order while returning to the keystone. Albies left the game early on Wednesday as a precaution due to neck stiffness, but he's back in there on Friday night. The All-Star second baseman should be returned to all fantasy lineups as a result, as the 24-year-old has been solid for owners in 2021 with a .263/.327/.508 slash line, 15 home runs, 51 runs scored, 59 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 323 at-bats. Albies can produce in all fantasy categories and has a pretty nice matchup on the road in his return to the lineup.
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.
