Albert Almora Jr is an American professional baseball center fielder for the Cincinnati Reds of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played in MLB for the Chicago Cubs and New York Mets.
In 2016, the year the Cubs won their first World Series in 108 years, he made his major league debut with the team. The outfielder played in all three rounds of the playoffs as a backup in his rookie season, batting.277.
The Cubs won the World Series in seven games against the Cleveland Indians in 2016, with him going 0 for 1 in Game 7 on November 2nd.
Kyle Schwarber singled to start the top of the 10th, and Albert pinch-ran for him. Albert advanced to second on a Kris Bryant fly-out, and Ben Zobrist scored the game-winning run with a double.
Insurance run by the Cubs proved to be essential as they held on for an 8-7 victory that ended the Billy Goat curse.
Almora battled for the starting role in 2017 and made the most starts in center field (65) of any player on the club (Ian Happ and Jon Jay made 41 and 43, respectively).
A career-high .298 average, 39 runs batted in, 46 RBI, and an OPS+ of 100 came from his 132 plate appearances.
