The Braves are going to be without Ozzie Albies for a while. Although the severity of his foot injury is unknown, he is going to miss at least 60 days on the injured list. Orlando Arcia had a great first game playing at second base, mashing a home run and collecting another hit:

Atlanta also called up former Brave Phil Gosselin to help out, but could they go out and acquire a former top prospect to fill the void left by Albies?

I’m happy Drury has found success. If you recall correctly, he was part of the trade that brought Justin Upton and Chris Johnson to Atlanta. Right now, I’m not sure if the Braves need to make a trade, but if they find themselves needing some juice, Brandon Drury makes a lot of sense.
