The Braves took him off the 60-day injured list Friday night, but 24 hours later he broke his little finger.

The injury happened as he slid to second base in the fourth inning – he was replaced by Vaughn Grissom.

Albies played his 64th game on Saturday, and although he missed a lot of time, he didn’t play to his All Star double CV.

YANKEES’ MARWIN GONZALEZ LEAVES GAME AFTER FREAK HEAD INJURY

The 25-year-old is recording career lows in just about every category, playing with a slant line of just 0.244/0.288/0.407.

The Braves have been virtually unstoppable since June 1 despite an injured and bad Albies. Since early June, they are 66-28 and have erased a 10.5 game deficit in the NL East behind the New York Mets.

They took the lead on Sept. 9 by half a game, but entering Saturday trailed by a game.

The Braves won the World Series last year without Ronald Acuna Jr., who is a far superior player to Albies, who has two Silver Slugger Awards under his belt.
