Can Marcell Ozuna bounce back?
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

Two years ago, Marcell Ozuna looked like a rising star, coming off a season in which he clubbed 23 homers and hit .269 as a 23-year-old. He slumped in a big way last year, however, ultimately winding up with a dubiously deserved trip to the minors to work on his swing. Which Ozuna should Fantasy owners expect this season; the one who could hit 30 homers, or the barely replacement-level player we saw for most of last season.

Ozuna's power largely disappeared last season, especially prior to his demotion. He hit just four homers in his first 79 games, and it's not hard to see why -- he stopped hitting the ball in the air. Ozuna's swing was all out of whack, and he sported a 53.3 percent groundball rate in the first half of the season. However, he lowered that groundball rate to 38.9 percent after returning from the minors, and hit six homers in 42 games, while hitting .278/.320/.469.

Ozuna's Fantasy value is going to depend on his ability to hit 20-plus homers, and he can't do that if half of his batted balls are on the ground. With the adjustments he made in the second half of the season, there is reason to believe he can get back to his 2014 levels, if not improve on them.

Marlins' Marcell Ozuna: Trade Talks Between Marlins And Rangers Yet To Advance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marcell Ozuna has been the subject of trade talks between the Miami Miami Marlins and the Texas Rangers for a month, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports, but those talks have "yet to significantly advance."

Ozuna was disappointing in 2015 (.259/.308/.383 in 494 plate appearances), but he is just 25 years old and all of one year removed from a 23-homer, 85-RBI season with the Marlins. If the Marlins are ready to give up on Ozuna, there will be a team ready to pounce. However, it doesn't appear the Rangers, seemingly set with an outfield of Josh Hamilton, Delino DeShields, and Shin-Soo Choo, are ready to pull the trigger just yet.

Marlins 3B Martin Prado gets scratched from Friday's lineup
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Marlins third baseman Martin Prado was scratched from Friday's lineup against the Nationals, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Prado was initially slated to serve his usual third base duties and bat third, but a late lineup change has Derek Dietrich sliding over the third with Marcell Ozuna now in the lineup instead. It's unclear exactly why the change was made, but further news on the situation should become available.

Marlins recall OF Marcell Ozuna from Triple-A on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Saturday. Ozuna was sent down to the minors in early July after he struggled for the first few months of the season.

Prior to his demotion, Ozuna was hitting .249 with four home runs--after breaking out with a 23-home run campaign in 2014. With New Orleans this season, Ozuna was hitting .317 with five dingers and 11 RBI in 33 games. He had been particularly hot lately, going 10 for 30 with a home run over his past eight contests.

Ozuna is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals. He will be in center field and bat fifth for manager Dan Jennings.

Ozuna is taking the roster spot of fellow outfielder Christian Yelich, who landed on the disabled list with a knee injury on Saturday.
