In the past it the case was Ronald Acuna, Jr. Then it’s his best acquaintance, Ozzie Albies.
The bug that causes injuries has taken a huge bite of the Atlanta Braves for the second consecutive season.
As they cruised to winning 9-5 in Washington which extended the streak of winning to a record-breaking 12 in a row, the Braves were unable to replace their spark-plug second baseman, who had a broken foot. The length of time the tiny switch-hitter will be out of action is yet to be determined, but it’s likely he’ll be out for the bulk of summer.
A sleek fielder who formed a great double-play team with Dansby Swanson. Albies was also an unexpected source of power, especially for someone who was an answer small Houston Second baseman Jose Altuve.
Albies 25, 25, is taller than 5’8″ tall and weighs 165 pounds. However, Albies didn’t let that prevent him from hitting 30 home runs while collecting more than 106 runs that he batted into two career highs, the year before. Also, he stole twenty bases. which is a personal record, and was batting from various spots within the lineup. He’s also durable, having played in his team’s 61 game this season.
Orlando Arcia, a 27-year-old journeyman, was replaced Albies following the injury on Monday night, that occurred during the fifth inning of Nationals Park when he tripped off the batter’s box after hitting a ground ball short.
Albies lead Albies in National League with 189 hits in 2019, but he has changed his strategy during the last few seasons to increase his power output. The average of his team has decreased between .271 by 2020, to .259 in 2021, and then to .244 this season.
His current score is in line with the average for career of Arcia an incredibly versatile backup who been primarily employed as a shortstop for Milwaukee Brewers. Milwaukee Brewers.
Other possible alternatives to Albies are three veteran players from Triple-A Gwinnett in Atlanta, the top farm team. They comprise Phil Gosselin, who’s played for the Braves previously and Pat Valaika and Hernan Perez.
It is also possible to trade A trade is also possible, as Brandon Drury of the Reds, Cesar Hernandez of the Nationals along with Rougned Odor from the Orioles all being free agents in the fall, and all playing for teams far off playoff contention.
The Braves place 9th in the majors, with a an annual payroll of $179,723,357. Liberty Media, the Denver-based company that manages the team has given permission for emergencies increases following unexpected injuries.
After Acuna ruptured his ACL July 10 Atlanta director of operations Alex Anthopoulos won the trade deadline by buying four outfielders to fill in for the injured players who helped fuel the team’s surge in the second half. The quartet comprised Eddie Rosario, a lefty-swinging slugger who is expected to return next month following early-season vision issues; Adam Duvall, who was the league’s top player in terms of runs batted in following the start of the 2021 season at Miami; Jorge Soler, the future World Series MVP; and Joc Pederson, who is now working for San Francisco.

In his post-game remarks to reporters Mondaymorning, Braves Manager Brian Snitker said, “I am not happy for Ozzie and I’m not happy about it for us too..

He’ll get better quickly But I’m not happy about it for him because the kid loves baseball and is an integral part of our team.”
