Albies went 3-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI in Saturday's win over the Brewers.
Albies has been one of the most consistent hitters in the National League and extended his hitting streak to seven games. In fact, the second baseman has hit safely in all but one of his appearances since April 26, hitting .370 during that 18-game stretch.
Albies went 1-for-4 with a triple, two runs and an RBI in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Phillies.
Albies' triple -- his second in as many days -- brought home Freddie Freeman during a four-run first inning that proved to be the difference in the series finale. Despite coming through with a decent day to close out the weekend, Albies is still off to a lackluster start to May with a .233/.343/.400 slash line, no home runs, no stolen bases, six runs and one RBI in eight games.
Albies went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 13-5 loss to the Blue Jays.
He got to a fading Robbie Ray in the seventh inning for Atlanta's first runs of the night, but the team was already in a 10-0 hole at that point. Albies extended his hitting streak to five games with the blast, and over that stretch he's gone 9-for-21 (.429) with two of his five homers on the year, four doubles, five RBI and six runs.
Albies went 3-for-5 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 10-0 rout of the Cubs.

It took 20 games, but the 24-year-old second baseman finally stole his first base of the season. Albies has struggled at the plate right along with most of the Atlanta lineup through the first few weeks, and he's slashing .169/.265/.366 with three homers, 10 RBI and 10 runs.
Albies went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks.
The second baseman has a slow start to the season, but Albies may be coming out of his funk. Over his last nine games he's gone just 7-for-31 (.226), but six of his hits (three doubles and all three of his homers on the year) have gone for extra bases.
Albies (calf) will start at second base and bat fifth Tuesday against the Yankees.
Atlanta won't have star outfielder Ronald Acuna (abdomen) in its lineup for the series opener, but the return of Albies from a two-game absence is a decent consolation prize. After struggling to a .139/.162/.278 slash line while batting second in each Atlanta's first 10 games, Albies has shown improvement since moving to the middle of the order. He's posted a 1.193 OPS in his four games batting fourth or fifth in the lineup.
Albies (calf) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.
Albies will close out the series in Chicago with consecutive absences while he continues to deal with a tender right calf that was hit by a pitch in Friday's opener. Ehire Adrianza will pick up a start at second base in place of Albies, who is being viewed as day-to-day heading into a two-game series with the Yankees that begins Tuesday.
Albies (calf) isn't starting Saturday's game against the Cubs.
Albies was removed from Friday's win over the Cubs in the ninth inning after he was hit by a pitch on the right calf. Ehire Adrianza will start at second base and bat sixth Saturday, and it's not yet clear whether Albies could be available off the bench.
Albies left Friday's win over the Cubs after he was hit by a pitch on the right calf, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Albies suffered the injury in the ninth inning of Friday's contest and was immediately removed from the game. Manager Brian Snitker said that the team would know more regarding Albies' status later in the night Friday. If Albies is forced to miss additional time, Ehire Adrianza could see increased playing time at second base.
Albies went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 14-8 loss to the Marlins.
Albies recorded his first-ever hit off of Pablo Lopez when he took him deep to right in the first for Atlanta's second home run of the inning and gave them an early 3-0 lead. The 24-year-old began the year hitless in his first 19 at-bats, but he's started to settle in a bit at the plate as of late with two home runs, seven RBI and six runs scored over the last seven games. Manager Brian Snitker also decided to move Albies down to the No. 6 spot in the batting order, and it has proven to be a beneficial move after he recorded his first multi-hit effort of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins.
Albies went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Phillies.
Albies got things rolling quickly as he launched a 404-foot home run to right center field to give Atlanta a 2-1 lead in the first inning. He was held hitless the rest of the game, but it was still encouraging to see him hit his first long ball of the season. Albies is starting to find his groove a bit, as he's notched a hit in five straight games while tallying four RBI in that span.
Albies went 2-for-6 with an RBI and a walk in Wednesday's doubleheader sweep of the Nationals.
The second baseman snapped out of a miserable 0-for-16 stretch to start the season, producing a run-scoring groundout and two singles to left field. Albies has remained in the two-hole of Atlanta's lineup despite his struggles, which should give him plenty of opportunities to score and drive in runs once he and Freddie Freeman return to their typical offensive production. Albies' power should make itself heard sooner rather than later, considering that the switch hitter recorded 24 homers in each of the past two full seasons.
Albies will start at second base while serving as Atlanta's No. 2 hitter in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Nationals.
Several lineup regulars are struggling at the moment for an 0-4 Atlanta squad, but none more than Albies, who has gone 0-for-16 with three strikeouts to begin the season. Atlanta manager Brian Snitker could consider making some changes to the lineup if the offense isn't able to heat up in the next few days, but for now, Albies will retain a favorable spot in the lineup between Ronald Acuna and Freddie Freeman. Dansby Swanson would be the most likely candidate to move into the No. 2 spot if Snitker elects to move Albies down the order at some point.
Albies hit his second home run of the spring during Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles.
The second baseman missed a bit of time with a sore neck, but Albies is otherwise enjoying a solid spring, going 6-for-21 (.286) with a 3:6 BB:K. Still only 24 years old, he'll head into the regular season looking to regain or even top the form that saw him pile up 24 homers, 15 steals and an .852 OPS in 2019 after a wrist issue derailed his 2020 campaign.
Albies (neck) is in the lineup for Thursday's spring game against the Rays.
Albies missed a couple days of action with a sore neck, but that will be the extent of his absence. As he figures to do regularly when the regular season gets underway, Albies will play second and hit second in Thursday's contest.
Atlanta scratched Albies from its lineup for Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against Pittsburgh due to a stiff neck.
Ehire Adrianza was a late addition to the lineup card, filling in for Albies at second base and as Atlanta's No. 2 hitter. The team hasn't commented on the severity of Albies' injury, but he was presumably scratched as a precaution and is likely being viewed as day-to-day.
Albies is fully healthy after battling a wrist injury last season, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
While the second baseman officially missed about a month of action in August and September with a bone contusion in his right wrist, unofficially the wrist was an issue for at least a week prior to his placement on the IL. "When you're healthier, everything is easier," Albies said Saturday. "It was just about resting and getting myself back to normal." He was dynamic once he returned to the lineup, slashing .338/.372/.581 with five homers and three steals in the final 18 games of the regular season before going yard twice more in the playoffs. The 24-year-old missed only six games combined over the previous two campaigns, so there's little reason to think Albies can't stay healthy this season and at least return to the level of production he flashed in 2019.
Albies went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Monday's NLCS Game 1 win against the Dodgers.
Albies gave the Braves a pair of insurance runs with his homer off Jake McGee in the top of the ninth, extended Atlanta's lead from 3-1 to 5-1. He's now homered twice in 15 career postseason games but still owns a poor .233/.277/.350 playoff slash line.
Albies went 3-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday, as the Braves beat the Marlins 11-1.
