Braves Star Has Foot Surgery

After fracturing his foot earlier this week, Ozzie Albies was placed on the 60-day injured list. Now, he has made the first step in his recovery, as he has had surgery on it. 

At this juncture, an expected recovery time has not been announced by the Braves. At a minimum, he of course will be out until mid-August. However, given the severity of his injury, it wouldn't be too shocking if needs more time after his 60-day stint on the IL ends. 

The Braves are currently on fire and will be aiming to keep it up without Albies in the lineup. Let's see if they catch up to the Mets in the NL East standings from here.
