Albies fractures foot: ‘Big part of our club’

Not much has gone wrong for the Braves during their 12-game win streak. But injury struck Monday night at Nationals Park. And now they’ll be without their All-Star second baseman for the foreseeable future.

Ozzie Albies suffered a fractured left foot during the club’s 9-5 win over the Nationals, an injury that will sideline Atlanta’s stalwart second baseman for a good chunk of the summer. Jammed by a 3-2 Steve Cishek fastball in the fifth, Albies tripped attempting to leave the batter’s box after an awkward swing resulted in a ground ball to short. He was unable to run to first base on the groundout, then limped gingerly back to the dugout and was replaced by Orlando Arcia to begin the next half-inning.

Shortly after, the Braves announced the fracture. On Tuesday afternoon, the team placed Albies on the 60-day injured list, a designation that will keep him out of the Braves’ lineup until at least mid-August.

“I hate it for Ozzie, and I hate it for us,” manager Brian Snitker said. “It’s unfortunate, but it’s one of those things. He’ll be fine. He’s young. He’ll heal quick, but I just hate it for the kid because he loves to play baseball and he’s such a big part of our club.”
