Braves' Ozzie Albies: Notches seventh double

Albies went 1-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Milwaukee. With three doubles in his last five games, Albies is beginning to tap into more power, but he remains in the midst of a long home-run drought that dates back to April 23. Even though he's moved to a typically run-producing-friendly role in the middle of the order since Ronald Acuna was cleared to make his season debut in late April, Albies has driven in only four runs over his last 21 games. Albies will remain in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale in Milwaukee, manning second base and batting fifth.

Atlanta Braves: Riding the Wave That is Ozzie Albies

Atlanta Braves: why Ozzie Albies isn’t hitting

It’s taken the league a few years to figure out how to combat the Atlanta Braves’ second baseman, but the trends are becoming clear. Throughout his minor league journey en route to the Atlanta Braves, Ozzie Albies was a hitting machine. From 2014 and into 2017 — the year of his MLB debut — Albies posted hitting averages like .381, .356. 310, .321… and even a .285 batting rate at AAA just prior to being promoted.

Braves' Ozzie Albies: Power surge continues

Albies went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's 9-7 loss to the Marlins. After Jazz Chisholm led off the game with a solo shot in the top of the first inning, Albies answered back in the bottom of the frame with his own leadoff blast, setting the tone for a wild day of offense. Albies is the unlikely MLB co-leader in home runs at the moment, as his six long balls has him tied with C.J. Cron, and all nine of the second baseman's nine hits have gone for extra bases, fueling his lopsided .242/.319/.581 slash line through 16 games.

Braves' Ozzie Albies: Two hits, stolen base

Albies went 2-for-5 with a double, run and stolen base in a 3-1 victory against the Dodgers on Tuesday. Albies doubled in the third inning, then singled, stole second and scored in the fifth to register his second multi-hit game of the season. The theft was the 25-year-old's first after he posted a career high of 20 set last season. That speed, when paired with a slugging of .577 so far for 2022, puts Albies in rare company.

Braves' Ozzie Albies: Slugs fifth homer

Albies went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Monday in a loss to the Dodgers. Albies helped chase Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw in the sixth inning with a 421-foot solo blast. That was the second baseman's only hit of the game, and he has only one multi-hit effort so far this season. Albies is batting .213 through 47 at-bats, but he is tied for the MLB lead with five long balls.

Braves' Ozzie Albies: Goes yard again Saturday

Albies went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Padres. The second baseman has now homered in three straight games and four of the last five, extending his hitting streak to six games in the process. Despite the hot streak, Albies is batting just .237 (9-for-38) through the first 10 games of the season, but his four homers, six runs and eight RBI have given him plenty of fantasy value.

Braves' Ozzie Albies: Slugs second homer

Albies went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Padres on Thursday. Albies' long ball was virtually meaningless in the overall context of the game -- it came in the ninth inning with the Braves down by 12 runs -- but it all counts the same in fantasy. The homer was the second in three contests for the star second baseman and extended his modest hitting streak to four games. After starting the season with just one hit in his first 12 at-bats, Albies has gone 6-for-16 over the four-game span.

Braves' Ozzie Albies: Pops first homer of season

Albies went 3-for-5 with a walk, a double, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's 16-4 rout of the Nationals. His eighth-inning solo shot off utility man Dee Strange-Gordon may not be the most impressive feat of Albies' career, but it still counts as his first homer of 2022. The 25-year-old is still looking for his first stolen base but he's been giving himself plenty of opportunities to swipe it, posting a .370 OBP to go with a .476 SLG through six games.

It’s about time I wrote about Ozzie Albies, don’t you think?

Here’s a little something I’ve wanted to write for a while, but other topics – like the Braves winning the World Series, like Joc Pederson and his pearls, like Eddie Rosario and Jorge Soler doing MVP work in the playoffs – demanded attention. With baseball on hold, nothing demands attention. Without further ado, I offer a few hundred words on …
