      Boras says Marlins keeping Ozuna in minors to delay arbitration

      Scott Boras, who is the agent for center fielder Marcell Ozuna, said the Marlins are leaving his client in the minors to delay his arbitration eligibility, according to the Miami Herald. The Marlins have denied their decision is financially-driven. Ozuna would be eligible for arbitration after this season, if the Marlins bring him back to the majors soon. WINZ reports the cutoff date as Aug. 8, but Boras said the date "is volatile. We're in that area now where it's a question." "The manager needs a middle of the order bat, the same bat they had for two years that was highly productive and they are restraining him in the minor leagues due to a service time issue," Boras said. "Ozuna is a proven major-leaguer, certainly deserving of being in the majors with the Marlins. I don't think anyone would look at the talent with the Marlins and suggest he's not one of the top 25 players in that organization." Ozuna has hit .320 with a .587 slugging percentage, .949 OPS, four home runs, eight doubles, nine RBI, 14 runs, four walks and 12 strikeouts in 20 games since his demotion to Triple-A New Orleans in early July.
