Braves reinstate 2B Ozzie Albies from injured list

ozzie albies

The red-hot Atlanta Braves reinstated star second baseman Ozzie Albies from the 10-day injured list on Friday.

He landed on the shelf April 16 with a broken big toe, sustained when he was hit by a pitch on the right foot the previous day.

Albies, a three-time All-Star, is batting .317 with two homers and 14 RBIs in 15 games this season.

Albies, 27, established career bests of 33 homers and 109 RBIs last season. He has a .273 career average with 133 homers and 469 RBIs in 787 games since reaching the majors with the Braves in 2017.

The Braves made room for Albies by sending shortstop David Fletcher back to Triple-A Gwinnett after Thursday’s 4-3 win against the Miami Marlins in 10 innings.

Fletcher, 29, appeared in five games for the Braves and batted .250 (2-for-8) with two RBIs.

Atlanta has won three straight and nine of its last 10 games entering a three-game weekend series at home against the Cleveland Guardians.
