Braves place Ozzie Albies on the 60-day IL, select the contract of Phil Gosselin

Yesterday was supposed to be a celebration, as the Braves won their 12th straight — the longest win streak in the majors so far this season. However, after the game, the entire focus was on Ozzie Albies, who fractured his foot while trying to run down the first base line. It’s still unclear if he will be able to play again this season, but we do know now he will be out for at least two months.

Braves' Phil Gosselin: Clear path to roster spot

Gosselin appears to be in line for a utility role in Atlanta after Brock Holt was released Thursday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. Gosselin doesn't do any one thing particularly well, but he hits just well enough to keep earning opportunities thanks to his defensive versatility. Over the last two seasons, he owns a 88 wRC+ in 475 plate appearances, which is the product of a .259/.316/.371 slash line.

Phil Gosselin loved his time in Philadelphia; is determined to continue MLB career

Four years before his MLB debut, Phil Gosselin sat in the nosebleeds section of Citizens Bank Park and pictured his future. The Malvern Prep graduate was still a sophomore at the University of Virginia with lofty goals. But as he watched his favorite team, the Philadelphia Phillies, play in the 2009 World Series against the New York Yankees, Gosselin made it his mission to play in that stadium one day.

Angels non-tender utilityman Phil Gosselin

The Angels non-tendered Phil Gosselin, letting go of a versatile player who often hit in the middle of a short-handed lineup late in the season. Gosselin was projected to earn about $1.5 million in arbitration. The Angels likely viewed him as expendable because they since acquired utility players Andrew Velazquez and Tyler Wade. Having a healthy Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon in 2022 would also reduce the opportunity for Gosselin.

Angels' Phil Gosselin: Goes deep in loss

Gosselin went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two total runs in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox. Gosselin provided an early lead for the Angels with a first-inning solo shot to left field. He was also on base when Jared Walsh launched a long ball in the fourth, but Los Angeles didn't score outside of the two round trippers. Gosselin's homer snapped a 16-game power drought for the 32-year-old, and he had collected only one extra-base hit (a double) over that stretch. However, his six overall long balls on the campaign are a career high.

Angels' Phil Gosselin: Settles in as regular third baseman

Gosselin will start at third base and bat third Wednesday against the Yankees. He'll be rewarded with an eighth consecutive start after going 1-for-4 with two RBI and his second stolen base of the season in Tuesday's 6-4 win. Gosselin and Jack Mayfield look to be locked in as the Angels' everyday options at the hot corner and shortstop, respectively, with the slumping Jose Iglesias moving into a bench role as a result.

Angels' Phil Gosselin: Gets Sunday off

Gosselin is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics. After losing hold of an everyday role in left field shortly after the All-Star break, Gosselin appears to have recaptured regular playing time at first base in the wake of Jared Walsh's (intercostal strain) recent move to the injured list. Gosselin started each of the past five games, going 3-for-19 at the dish. Matt Thaiss will get the nod at first base in Sunday's series finale while Gosselin gets a breather.

Angels' Phil Gosselin: Loses hold of everyday role

Gosselin remains on the bench for Sunday's game against the Twins. As expected, the signing of Adam Eaton, recent call-up of Brandon Marsh and reinstatement of Justin Upton from the injured list since the All-Star break have closed the door on Gosselin handling a regular role in the outfield. After manning left field in each of the Angels' first 11 games in July, Gosselin has started only twice in the team's subsequent seven contests.
