2022 Player Outlook
Albies is coming off a career year in 2021 which saw him hit .259 with 103 runs, 30 home runs, 106 RBI and 20 stolen bases. The latter three were all career highs as he was an All-Star, Top 15 MVP vote getter and a Silver Slugger Award winner. The 2022 season for the Braves lineup could obviously be dealt a huge blow should Freddie Freeman sign elsewhere but at just 25 years old I see no reason to expect any level of regression here as he enters his power prime. In fact, he may even come out with a bit of a better average in 2022 after having a below average .278 BABIP last season. Fire up Albies as a Top 25 player off the board and likely the third second basemen drafted in standard league formats.
