On the 1st of August 2017, around noon, Ozzie was sleeping on the couch when he got an unexpected call from Atlanta Braves manager, Brian Snitker, who told him to make his way to Braves new SunTrust Park so he can make his MLB debut with the Atlanta Braves at 7 pm vs the Los Angeles Dodgers.

With his callup to the Atlanta Braves, Ozzie became the fifth player from the island of Curaçao that has played for the Braves, alongside Andruw Jones and Andrelton Simmons.
