Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Blasts third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Mets.

He took his former Cards teammate Michael Wacha deep in the first inning, setting the tone for a big Atlanta victory. Ozuna has hit safely in eight of nine games to begin the year, batting .367 (11-for-30) with three homers and six RBI.

Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Shows patience Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna went 1-for-1 with three walks and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Rays.

One of the free passes was intentional, but this was still an impressive display of patience from the 29-year-old. Ozuna did post a career-high 11.3 percent walk rate in 2019, and if he continues to improve in that area he could emerge as a genuine OBP asset in leagues utilizing that category.

Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Goes yard in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an RBI double, two runs scored and a walk in Sunday's 14-1 win over the Mets.

Ozuna restored a two-run lead in the third inning with his double to plate Ozzie Albies, sparking a five-run surge. Ozuna then added a solo shot in the sixth. He's already homered twice through three games this season. The 29-year-old should continue to slug in the middle of the Braves' dangerous offense.

Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Comes up clutch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a game-tying solo home run in Saturday's 5-3 extra-inning win over the Mets.

Mets closer Edwin Diaz was within one out of protecting a 2-1 lead when Ozuna knocked the game-tying homer into the right-field seats. The 29-year-old Ozuna will likely be a fixture in the heart of the Braves' order due to his powerful bat, but it remains to be seen if he'll serve more as a left fielder or a designated hitter in 2020.

Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Could be primary DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna (facial laceration) could be used as Atlanta's primary designated hitter this season, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The 29-year-old's bat will be in the lineup somewhere on a consistent basis, but Ozuna's declining defense over the couple of years could push him to DH rather than left field, while Nick Markakis and Adam Duvall platoon in the other spot. Austin Riley could also be in the LF/DH mix for Atlanta. Wherever he plays defensively, Ozuna's power will keep him in the heart of the batting order.

Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Working out daily, injury minor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna's facial laceration is considered minor and he continues to work out daily, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Ozuna was able to drive himself to the hospital after the incident, a clear sign that the laceration he suffered was a minor issue. His participation in daily workouts also suggests the issue won't have any effect on his ability to ready for the start of the 2020 campaign, assuming there is one.

Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Suffers small laceration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna suffered a "small laceration" on his face after his wife allegedly hit him with a soap dish, Andy Slater of Fox Sports 640 reports.

This incident reportedly happened a couple weeks ago, and Ozuna was able to drive to the police station to report the incident, so it's possible he has already fully recovered from the laceration. It should not impact his availability if there is a season this year.

Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Could factor in at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna could see significant action at designated hitter if the universal DH is part of a shortened MLB season, Gabriel Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

While Austin Riley is viewed as the likely top option to DH, Ozuna's somewhat shaky defense in left field could make Atlanta consider him for the spot as well. With veterans Nick Markakis and Adam Duvall on the bench, and top prospects Drew Waters and Cristian Pache potentially part of a taxi squad if the minor-league season is canceled, the roster would have plenty of outfield depth to cover any potential shift to DH for Ozuna.

Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Hasn't found timing at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna was having a rough spring at the plate when MLB was put on pause, hitting .083 (2-for-24) with no extra-base hits and a 1:12 BB:K.

If he were a kid trying to crack the roster for the first time that kind of performance would be worrisome, but Ozuna's track record suggests it was just a matter of time before he found his rhythm, although the interruption in the schedule could reset that clock back to zero. After slugging at least 23 homers in four straight years, the 29-year-old is set to hold down a spot in the heart of Atlanta's batting order once the regular season finally begins.

Braves' Marcell Ozuna: Lands with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna agreed to a one-year, $18 million deal with the Braves on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Ozuna will join his third organization after recording .241/.328/.472 slash line with 29 homers and 89 RBI in 130 games with the Cardinals in 2019. The veteran outfielder is still considered one of the league's premier power hitters after averaging 30 home runs and 100 RBI over the past three years. Ozuna figures to slot into the cleanup spot following the departure of Josh Donaldson, while the Braves plan to use him as their everyday left fielder, per David O'Brien of The Athletic.

Marcell Ozuna: Won't take qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna will not accept the Cardinals' qualifying offer, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Ozuna isn't at the same elite level as some players who were tendered qualifying offers, but he's evidently generating enough interest around the league that he won't have to settle for the one-year deal. Per Heyman's report, seven teams, including the Cardinals, have talked to the outfielder about a multi-year deal.

Marcell Ozuna: Gets qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna was given a qualifying offer by the Cardinals on Monday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

The draft-pick penalty which will now be attached to Ozuna could potentially compel him to accept the offer. He's a good hitter but not an elite one, having posted a wRC+ above 110 just once in the last five seasons, so teams could be hesitant to give up a pick to sign him to a long-term deal heading into his age-29 season.

Cardinals' Marcell Ozuna: Sitting for series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

Ozuna is one of multiple starters sitting for the Cardinals on Wednesday. The outfielder played all 19 innings during Tuesday's 3-2 loss, going 0-for-6 with a pair of walks. Tyler O'Neill is starting in left field and hitting fifth in his stead.

Cardinals' Marcell Ozuna: On base four times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna went 2-for-3 with two doubles, two walks and a run in a win over the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Ozuna didn't partake in the Cardinals' four-homer barrage, but he made more than his fair share of contributions. Ozuna had gone just 1-for-23 over the six games prior to Monday and is still hitting a miserable .148 (12-for-81) in September even when factoring in Monday's breakout. However, with eight of his 12 hits during the month going for extra bases (three doubles, five home runs), Ozuna has managed to compile a solid 11 RBI.

Cardinals' Marcell Ozuna: Blasts 29th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a 9-8 victory over the Cubs on Saturday.

Ozuna put the Cardinals in front 7-6 with a seventh-inning home run off Kyle Ryan. The 28-year-old had been slumping, going 6-for-45 with two home runs since Sept. 8. For the season, Ozuna is slashing .243/.325/.483 with 88 RBI in 460 at-bats.

Cardinals' Marcell Ozuna: Sole run producer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a two-run, ground-rule double and a two-run home run in a win over the Nationals on Monday.

Ozuna was responsible for all of the Cardinals' runs in the critical win, with his seventh-inning two-bagger snapping a 2-2 tie. The slugging outfielder has left the yard twice in the last five games, but Monday's multi-hit effort was only his second of September.

Cardinals' Marcell Ozuna: Smacks 27th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna went 1-for-3 with two walks, a solo home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Rockies.

Ozuna took Tim Melville deep in the third inning to record his 27th homer of the season. While he's recorded only six hits in his last 41 at-bats, Ozuna has still managed to hit three home runs in that span. For the season, he's maintained a .254/.33/.495 line across 478 plate appearances while also chipping in 74 runs and 82 RBI.

Cardinals' Marcell Ozuna: Breaks 0-for-13 stretch with homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna went 1-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, three runs and two walks during a 10-1 victory against the Pirates on Saturday.

The veteran outfielder started the rout with a three-run long ball in the third. This was just his second homer in his last 13 games, and Ozuna also broke an 0-for-13 stretch with the homer. Ozuna is batting .255 with 26 home runs, 81 RBI, 72 runs and 12 steals in 411 at-bats this season.

Cardinals' Marcell Ozuna: Only source of offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in a win over the Giants on Tuesday.

Ozuna's 393-foot shot to left in the sixth inning turned out to be the only run scored by either squad. The round tripper snapped a couple of dubious streaks for the veteran outfielder -- it marked his first home run since Aug. 23, while also helping end the 0-for-19 skid that had encompassed his prior five games.

September 2, 2019 04:48 PM
Cardinals' Marcell Ozuna: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna is not in the Cardinals' starting lineup for Game 2 of their doubleheader Sunday.

Ozuna struggled in the first game Sunday, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout. He has played in every game for the Cardinals since returning from the injured list Aug. 3, hitting .283 at the plate with four home runs and 15 RBI. He will get a much-deserved rest Sunday night and figures to be back in the lineup Monday at home against the Giants. Tyler O'Neill is starting in left field in his place and hitting fourth.
