Ozzie Albies News
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies continued his early season struggles on Tuesday, as he finished 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the loss to Washington. Albies has now opened the year 0-for-16 with three strikeouts through his first four games a stark contrast to his solid Spring Training in which he slashed .262/.354/.500 with three home runs and two steals in 17 games. Managers shouldn't be too concerned, as Albies should bounce back soon and start to show why he has been one of the top second basemen in fantasy.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies has begun to heat up at the plate over his last five games, as he is now hitting 5-for-14 with a home run and four runs scored in that span following Sunday's performance. Albies is now hitting .259/.355/.481 with two homers this spring, as he looks to bounce back from a down year in 2020 in which he slashed .271/.306/.466 while posting career-worsts in strikeout rate (24.2%) and walk rate (4%). Managers will hope that Albies can return to his 20-homer, 15 steal form that he displayed in 2018 and 2019, as he currently boasts an ADP of 35.
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox. Albies is now just 2-for-13 with a home run and one RBI in his first six spring games. It is still early enough in the spring where Albies can rebound and put together a string of solid games. He had a respectable 2020 campaign by slashing .271/.306/.466 with six home runs and 19 RBI, despite missing 31 games with a wrist injury. He is currently boasting an ADP of 33 and should be in line for a solid season.
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.
