Wed Sep 1508:50Ozzie Albies Reaches Base Twice On Tuesday
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies went 1-for-4 with a walk in the team's 5-4 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday. He also struck out in the game and he was caught stealing in his only stolen base attempt. Albies got off to a scorching hot start to the month of September as he homered in each of his first four games of the month. However, he struggled a bit after that, going just 1-for-19 over a four-game stretch before breaking through with a home run in this past Sunday's game. While Albies' season-long batting average of .257 is a bit disappointing, he's provided fantastic counting stats this year with career-highs in both home runs (28) and RBI (94).

Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies went 2-for-4 with a homer, two runs scored, four RBI, and a walk during an 8-5 victory over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old now has 27 HR, 93 RBI, 88 R, and 17 SB with a .262/.318/.820 line across 530 at-bats. With a 9.4% barrel rate, 37.4% hard hit rate, and 21.2-degree launch angle, Albies has put together a career year in the power department. The Atlanta second baseman should continue to be the best option at the position for the next several years in a deep and talented lineup.

He appears to be healthy, so fantasy managers should plug him right back into their lineups going forward.

Thu Sep 219:33Ozzie Albies Remains Out On Thursday
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies (knee) remains out of the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Colorado Rockies. He was able to go through pregame workouts, but will sit out at least one more game. Ehire Adrianza is hitting eighth and covering second base versus righty Chi Chi Gonzalez on Thursday. Adrianza isn't in a favorable part of the order and doesn't offer enough upside to warrant using as a streaming choice on Thursday.

Wed Sep 118:54Ozzie Albies Out Of Braves Lineup On Wednesday
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies (knee) is not in the lineup on Wednesday for the finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 24-year-old exited Tuesday's 3-2 loss to LA after taking a foul tip off of his left knee. Since x-rays on the knee came back negative, it's fair to consider him day-to-day at this point. Ehire Adrianza will fill in at second base and bat eighth on Wednesday against Max Scherzer. Adrianza has faired well against right-handed pitching this season but has yet to face Scherzer over his career.

Sun Aug 2900:15Ozzie Albies Has Two-Hit Contest
Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies is a somewhat forgotten man in the lineup these days. The red-hot performances by Freddie Freeman and Austin Riley have headlined the Braves over the last few weeks. However, Albies has remained solid at the plate and showed what he can do on Saturday. He went 2-for-4 with two singles and a stolen base in the 5-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants. Albies is slashing .258/.318/.479 with 22 homers, 85 RBI and 17 stolen bases this season.

Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies went 2-for-5 with a run scored in the team's 5-4 loss to the New York Yankees on Tuesday.

Since August 14, however, he's only managed one extra-base hit, a double. He's slashing just .222/.290/.422 over August as a whole. Albies' 111.4 max exit velocity on the year is a career-best clip and it ranks in the 80th percentile. He's also maintained a career-best average launch angle of 21.1 degrees this year. He can be a bit streaky at times, but he should wrap up the year as one of the better overall producers at second base.
Tue Aug 1710:55Ozzie Albies Remains Hot At The Plate

This double play combination of Swanson and Albies needs to be started in all fantasy formats going forward.

Albies is one steal shy of matching his career-high of 15 and also has a chance of eclipsing his career-high in homers of 24.

He'll have some bad games at the plate, but Albies continues to be a must-start fantasy option.
