Albies signed with the Braves organization in 2013, and made his MLB debut with the team in 2017. During his first full season, Albies was named to the 2018 Major League Baseball All-Star Game. In 2019, he won the National League Silver Slugger Award for second basemen.
On June 3, 2021, Albies recorded his 500th career hit, an RBI double off of Washington Nationals reliever Sam Clay. Albies was selected as a reserve for the 2021 All-Star Game.

While playing the Philadelphia Phillies on September 29, Albies scored his one-hundredth run of the season. In 2021, he swung at a higher percentage of pitches in the strike zone than any other major leaguer, at 83.4%. The Braves finished with an 88–73 record, clinching the NL East, and eventually won the 2021 World Series, giving the Braves their first title since 1995. Following the 2021 season, Albies won a second Silver Slugger Award, as well as the Heart and Hustle Award.
