  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Blasts two homers

    Ozuna went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in a 4-3 loss to the Reds on Sunday.

    Ozuna went deep twice to give him 16 home runs and 34 RBI on the season. The 31-year-old right-handed power bat is on pace for his best home run total since 2017, when he went yard 37 times while playing for the Marlins. However, Ozuna's .227 average and .280 OBP are considerably down from his career numbers. His .244 BABIP and .276 xBA suggest that he could have been the victim of some bad hitter's luck thus far and is perhaps due for his numbers to normalize over the rest of the season.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Hits game-winning homer

    Ozuna went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Saturday's 5-3 victory versus the Dodgers.

    After the Dodgers tied the score 3-3 in the top of the eighth inning, Ozuna responded with a two-run shot off Brusdar Graterol in the bottom of the frame to provide the winning margin. The long ball was Ozuna's 14th of the campaign, tied for 12th-most in the National League. The veteran's .227/.280/.416 season slash line is somewhat disappointing, however.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Hits 13th home run

    Ozuna went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in a 12-10 loss to the Giants on Tuesday.

    There has always been plenty of pop in Ozuna's bat, and his home run off Anthony DeSclafani now gives him 13 home runs on the year. Despite being a career .270 hitter, the 31-year-old slugger is slashing only .227/.275/.414 in 2022. Baseball Savant ranks him in the 90th percentile of xSLG, so it is possible that his slash line normalizes upward toward his career standard.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Taking seat Sunday

    Ozuna is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.

    The 31-year-old's move to the bench allows both of Atlanta's two backstops -- Travis d'Arnaud and William Contreras -- to stick in the lineup, as Contreras will handle designated-hitter duties in Ozuna's stead. Ozuna went 0-for-7 with a walk and three strikeouts in the first two games of the series in Chicago.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Clubs 11th homer

    Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Monday's 9-5 win over the Nationals.

    Ozuna took Nationals starter Erasmo Ramirez deep in the third inning. The long ball was Ozuna's first since his two-homer game May 29 versus the Marlins, and he's added just three doubles in that rather power-dry stretch. The slugger is up to a .227/.269/.403 slash line with 11 homers, 25 RBI, 28 runs scored, two stolen bases and eight doubles through 59 contests. He should continue to see a regular role as the designated hitter, but he lost his spot as the No. 3 hitter early in June and has batted sixth or seventh in his last seven starts. Ozuna's also seen himself occasionally on the bench against right-handed pitchers lately.

    Ozuna is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Goes deep twice

    Ozuna went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Sunday's 6-3 win over Miami.

    Ozuna took Elieser Hernandez deep in both the first and third innings. The 31-year-old is slashing .228/.269/.418 with 10 homers through 197 plate appearances on the year. He was in a 6-for-28 (.214) slump with no extra-base hits over his previous eight games.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Back in action

    Ozuna (abdomen) will return to the lineup as expected for Friday's game against the Marlins, batting third and playing left field.

    Ozuna was scratched from Thursday's series finale against the Phillies due to lower abdominal tightness, but reports indicated it would only be a one-game absence. That will indeed be the case, which is great news for Atlanta, as Ozuna is riding a 12-game hitting streak.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Set for Friday return

    Ozuna (abdomen) will return to the lineup Friday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Ozuna was scratched from Thursday's game but the issue won't keep him sidelined for long. He's swung the bat well of late, collecting at least one hit in each of his last 12 games while smacking four home runs and collecting eight RBI and six runs scored.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Scratched with abdominal issue

    Ozuna was scratched from the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies due to lower abdominal tightness.

    Although Ozuna was removed from Thursday's lineup less than an hour before the start of the game, his injury doesn't seem like a significant concern since he'll be available off the bench. However, Orlando Arcia will enter the lineup in left field and bat eighth.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Homers in third straight game

    Ozuna went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Friday's 5-3 win over the Marlins.

    He staked Atlanta to a 3-0 lead by taking Trevor Rogers deep in the first inning. Ozuna has gone yard in three straight games and four of the last six as part of a seven-game hitting streak, but the surge has only boosted his slash line on the year to .224/.268/.414 as he pulls himself out of a deep early season hole.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Slugs seventh homer

    Ozuna went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-6 extra-innings loss to the Brewers.

    The veteran slugger went back-to-back with Austin Riley off Corbin Burnes in the third inning, staking Atlanta to an early 4-0 lead that the bullpen couldn't protect. Ozuna has gone yard three times in the last five games as part of a six-game hitting streak, and he's up to seven homers and 17 RBI through 38 games on the season.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Swipes second bag

    Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

    The 31-year-old slugger hadn't swiped a base since August 2019 coming into the season, but Ozuna suddenly has two steals in the last five games. It's otherwise been a brutal May for him, as he's gone 6-for-50 (.120) through 13 contests with one homer, four RBI and five runs.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Ties game with two-run homer

    Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's win over the Padres.

    Ozuna struck out in his first three trips to the plate, but his two-run shot off Steven Wilson in the bottom of the eighth was a crucial one, as it tied the game at 5-5. He now as five homers on the season but is still hitting a disappointing .205/.246/.356 overall.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Goes deep again

    Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 2-1 loss to the Padres on Sunday.

    Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Padres.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Clubs two homers Tuesday

    Ozuna went 3-for-6 with a double, two solo home runs and a third run scored in Tuesday's 16-4 win over the Nationals.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Bangs out three hits Saturday

    Ozuna went 3-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Reds.

    The veteran slugger brought home the first run of the game on a two-bagger in the first inning. Ozuna got the start in left field Saturday and hit cleanup, but he should spend most of his time this season at DH. The 31-year-old is off to a quick start to 2022, going 4-for-11 through three games, but he's still looking for his first home run.
