Ozzie Albies, 2B, Atlanta Braves — July 17-18, 2017 — Gwinnett Braves (Triple-A International League)
Atlanta Braves second base prospect Ozzie Albies bats for the Gwinnett Braves during a July 17-18, 2017 Triple-A International League series against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (Philadelphia Phillies) at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Widely considered one of the Atlanta Braves' top prospects, the 20-year-old Ozzie Albies is knocking on the door to the big leagues right now, hitting .285/.330/.444/.774 in Triple-A as of July 30, 2017, with 21 doubles, eight triples, nine home runs, and 21 stolen bases across 95 games (403 at-bats). The switch-hitter has some sneaky power and some obvious speed, and he could help at the top of a big league lineup very quickly—or find himself used as trade fodder for the Braves if they're looking to pick up an impact veteran. Either way, he'll soon make a major impression on the Major Leagues thanks to his compact power stroke and overall plus athleticism on the bases and in the field.
