Braves reinstate star 2B Albies from 60-day IL

The Atlanta Braves have activated star second baseman Ozzie Albies from the 60-day injured list.

Albies had not played for the Braves since breaking his left foot in June after making an awkward swing. He had been on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett that included a 5-for-5 performance with a game-winning home run Tuesday.

Prior to the injury, Albies was hitting .244 with eight home runs and 33 RBIs in the majors this season. The 25-year-old in his fifth major league season, and he won a Silver Slugger award in 2019 and 2021. Signed through 2025, Albies led the National League last season in assists and has made two All-Star Game appearances.

The Braves also designated right-hander Jay Jackson for assignment and placed infielder Ehire Adrianza on the 10-day injured list with a strained left quadriceps.

Adrianza, 33, has gone 1-for-3 in five games for Atlanta since joining the team at the trade deadline from the Washington Nationals. Jackson, 34, made two scoreless appearances for the Braves last month.
