After a successful season in the International League, in which he was named the International League’s midseason and postseason All-Star, Ozzie was awarded the MVP honors of the Gwinnett Braves.

The 20-year old Albies had an award winning season with Gwinnett. He batted a team-best .285 with 21 doubles, 8 triples, 9 home runs, 67 runs scored, 41 runs batted in and 21 stolen bases in 97 games. 

On August 1st, the day he earned his promotion to the Atlanta Braves, he ranked among IL leaders in several offensive categories: hits, runs, at-bats, total bases, stolen bases, extra-base hits, and batting.

Ozzie has to share this honor with Sean Kazmar jr, another talented infielder.

When Ozzie was promoted to the Braves, he struggled at the plate, but in his third game, he hit a two run home run. Since August 19, he had only two games in which he did not collect a hit. Since that date, he has raised his batting average to .284 (33 hits in 116 at-bats) with 5 doubles, 4 triples and 2 home runs.
