Player Outlook
Marcell Ozuna struggled to a .687 OPS in 2022 and appeared to be in danger of being cut out of Atlanta's regular lineup last season after going 5-for-59 in April, but he quickly turned things around and finished 2023 with a career-high 40 homers, 100 RBI, 84 runs and a .274/.346/.558 slash line in 144 contests. That was good for a 139 wRC+, which is a vast improvement on his 85 wRC+ over the previous two years. His 2023 production was supported by a career-high 16.6 percent barrel rate and 49.0 percent hard-hit rate, which helped lead to a .284 xBA and .583 xSLG. Ozuna almost exclusively served as Atlanta's designated hitter, as he made only two appearances (one start) in the outfield, so his positional eligibility will be limited to begin 2024. That'll hardly matter to fantasy managers if he's able to replicate his 2023 campaign, but year-to-year consistency has never been the 33-year-old's forte. Ozuna's results last season were supported by strong underlying numbers and sets him up for another productive campaign in 2024, but he still carries some risk for fantasy managers given his boom-or-bust trends the past few years.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Crushes three-run blast

    Ozuna went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk in Sunday's loss to the Rangers. Ozuna drilled a three-run shot off Michael Lorenzen in the opening frame to give Atlanta an early lead. He's picked up right where he left off from last season with his hot bat and currently leads the league with nine home runs and 27 RBI to go along with a slash line of .338/.404/.713.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Power surge continues Wednesday

    Ozuna went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Astros. The veteran slugger got Atlanta on the board in the second inning, leading off the frame by crushing a J.P. France sweeper 432 feet to left field. Ozuna is tied with Mike Trout for the MLB lead with eight homers, and Wednesday's blast extended his hitting streak to 16 games -- a stretch in which he's slashed .379/.431/.788 with 13 runs and 23 RBI, in addition to all eight long balls.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Stays hot against Miami

    Ozuna went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run, a double and four RBI in Sunday's 9-7 win over the Marlins. Ozuna notched an RBI double in the top of the seventh inning before launching a three-run homer off reliever Tanner Scott in the ninth, giving Atlanta a 9-7 lead. The long ball was his seventh of the season, and the 33-year-old extended his hit streak to 13 games. On the year, Ozuna is batting .373 with the seven homers, 21 RBI and 11 runs scored over 59 at-bats in 14 contests.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Slugs sixth homer

    Ozuna went 3-for-4 with a walk, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Friday's 8-1 win over the Marlins. The veteran slugger capped his big day with a solo shot off Matt Andriese in the ninth inning. Ozuna's been red hot begin the season, batting .360 (18-for-50) through 12 games with six homers, 10 runs and 16 RBI, and the former Marlin continues to enjoy hitting in LoanDepot Park -- through 347 career games in Miami, Ozuna has slashed .295/.347/.496 with 57 home runs.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Notches fifth homer of 2024

    Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Monday against the Mets. Ozuna tagged Mets' starter Julio Teheran in the third inning for the two-run shot, continuing the outfielders' monstrous start to 2024. He's now tied with Mike Trout, Mookie Betts and Tyler O'Neill for the most long balls in MLB and is part of a four-way tie for the third-most RBI (12).

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Homers, drives in four

    Ozuna went 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBI on Saturday in a 9-8 win over the Diamondbacks. Atlanta was down 6-0 before they got a chance to bat, but Ozuna got the scoring going for his club with an RBI double in the fourth, and he made it a game with a three-run blast in the fifth before Atlanta eventually completed the comeback. The designated hitter is already up to four home runs on the season, which trails only Mookie Betts.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Goes yard twice in loss

    Ozuna went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the White Sox. The veteran slugger took Garrett Crochet deep to left field in the seventh inning before launching a Michael Kopech fastball to nearly the same spot in the ninth, but it was all the offense Atlanta could muster. Ozuna has gone just 5-for-22 (.227) to begin the season with an 0:5 BB:K, but three of those hits have left the yard. The 33-year-old is looking to match the career-high 40 homers he clubbed in 2023.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Continues to impress in spring

    Ozuna went 1-for-3 in Monday's 3-0 Grapefruit League win over the Twins. The veteran DH appears set to thrive as part of what will be another stacked Atlanta lineup in 2024. Ozuna is hitting .407 with a 1.004 OPS through 27 Grapefruit League at-bats. Ozuna belted 40 home runs last season for an offense that was clicking all season, and his spring performance has done nothing to suggest he won't be a prolific power source again in 2024.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Hits two more home runs

    Ozuna went 2-for-3 with two homers, a walk and four RBI in Sunday's 10-9 loss to the Nationals. Ozuna got his day going with a three-run blast in the third before sending out his 40th home run of the season in the ninth. Ozuna finished with seven RBI over the final two games of the year and ends the regular season with 100 RBI for the first time since 2017. Ozuna also reached 40 homers for the first time in his career and has had a tremendous bounce back campaign. The 32-year-old heads into the playoffs slashing .274/.346/.558. His .904 OPS and .284 ISO were both his highest marks since the shortened 2020 season.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Swats three-run homer

    Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a triple and a three-run home run in Saturday's win over the Nationals. Ozuna tagged Jordan Weems for a three-run shot in the fifth inning, marking the outfielder's 38th long ball of 2023. Over his last 12 games, Ozuna is 17-for-49 (.347) with four home runs and 15 RBI while striking out at a 26.4 percent clip.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Sits for matinee

    Ozuna is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Ozuna started the previous 10 games but will sit for Game 1 on Sunday after he posted a .300/.364/.625 slash line during that stretch. Ronald Acuna will rest his legs as the DH while Kevin Pillar starts in right field.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Gets evening off

    Ozuna is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader with the Phillies. Ozuna has cooled a bit since his recent power surge and went 0-for-4 in the first game of Monday's twin bill, so manager Brian Snitker decided to prevent him from playing a full nine innings in the nightcap. Ronald Acuna will serve as Atlanta's designated hitter Monday night, and Kevin Pillar will replace Acuna in right field.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Swats another home run

    Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over Colorado. Ozuna connected on a solo home run in the second inning off Peter Lambert, marking the outfielders' sixth home run of his last eight games. Over that stretch, Ozuna is 15-for-30 (.500) with 11 runs scored and 13 RBI. He's also collected a hit in 24 of his last 25 games and is slashing .267/.340/.529 on the season (115 games).

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Slugs 29th homer

    Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Sunday's loss to the Giants. The veteran slugger got hold of a first-pitch slider from Scott Alexander in the sixth inning and drove it over the wall in left-center field, bringing Atlanta to within a run, but the NL East leaders were never able to find an equalizer in an eventual 8-5 loss. Ozuna has hit safely in six straight games and 22 of his last 23, ripping off a .386/.457/.735 slash line during that blistering stretch with seven of his 29 homers and 21 of his 70 RBI on the season.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Homer, four RBI in win

    Ozuna went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, four RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Mets. Ozuna was a triply shy of the cycle, but he hasn't hit a three-bagger since 2019, so he wasn't all that close to the feat. He was again the driving force of Atlanta's offense, logging his fourth multi-hit effort in his last five games. He has four homers and seven RBI in that span. For the season, the 32-year-old is slashing .262/.334/.519 with 28 homers, 67 RBI, 62 runs scored and 18 doubles through 110 contests.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Power surge continues

    Ozuna went 3-for-3 with a walk, a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Mets. His fifth-inning shot off Tylor Megill gave Atlanta a 3-0 lead and proved to be the difference in the game. Ozuna has gotten hot again, going yard three times in the last two games and slashing .342/.419/.632 in August with five homers and 14 RBI in 21 contests. Despite his ice-cold first month of the season, the 32-year-old slugger has an .836 OPS in 2023 -- his best performance over a full season since he erupted for a career-best .924 OPS in his final year with Miami in 2017.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Goes deep twice

    Ozuna went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Monday's 10-4 loss to the Mets. The 32-year-old outfielder got the better of David Peterson on Monday, blasting two solo shots off the Mets' starter. Ozuna's first homer marked an historic achievement for Atlanta, as it now boasts five players with 25-plus home runs for the first time in franchise history. The slugger has now hit safely in 17 of his last 18 contests, posting a .348/.419/.621 slash line with four homers, 13 RBI and 13 runs scored during that stretch.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Possible waiver wire pickups

    I have to admit I'm straight-up befuddled as to why Ozuna is still available in one-third of CBS Sports leagues. In fact, his roster rate hasn't exceeded its current 67 percent mark all season. It's to the point now where the full-season numbers make the case well enough, but if you eliminate his dreadful April, he's batting .276 with 22 homers, 58 RBI, 51 runs and an OPS pushing .900. That's in 86 games, so double those numbers, and you'll be just a little off his 162-game pace. Outfield is a difficult position to fill, and for nobody else out there could you reasonably expect those kinds of numbers over such a large sample. Particularly because he's helping to anchor a loaded Braves lineup, it's time to buy in once and for all.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Big day in Tuesday's win

    Ozuna went 2-for-2 with two walks and a three-run home run in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Yankees. The veteran slugger launched what proved to be the game-winning hit in the first inning when he took Luis Severino deep to straightaway center field. Ozuna's hit safely in 13 straight games, batting .333 (16-for-48) over that stretch, and the hot streak has pushed his slash line on the season up to .245/.320/.478 with 24 homers and 60 RBI in 103 contests.

  • Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Connects for 23rd homer

    Ozuna went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 8-0 win over the Cubs. He went back-to-back with Sean Murphy in the fourth inning, crushing a Kyle Hendricks sinker out of Wrigley Field entirely. Ozuna has an OPS north of .850 since the start of May, though he gets lost in the shuffle a bit with all the great bats in the Atlanta lineup. His 23 home runs rank fifth on the club.
