Marcell Ozuna said after Monday's game that his right hamstring is fine.

Ozuna looked to tweak the hammy while running to first base after a lineout in the ninth inning Monday, but the feeling is that he's merely dealing with a cramp. Still, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Ozuna ultimately sit out a game or two. He cranked his 10th and 11th homers Monday.

Marcell Ozuna slugged his 10th and 11th home runs of the season in the Marlins' loss to the Cardinals on Monday.

Ozuna tagged Carlos Martinez for a two-run shot in the fourth and a solo shot in the sixth, but he appeared to tweak his right hamstring while running down to first base on a lineout in the bottom of the ninth. Look for an update soon from the Marlins.
May 8 - 10:02 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Mets on Saturday.

Ozuna blasted the two-run job, his ninth of the year, off Mets starter Robert Gsellman in the fifth inning. During his current eight-game hitting streak, the 26-year-old is 13-for-30 (.433) with three homers, five RBI and six runs scored. Ozuna is hitting .315/.379/.595 with 26 RBI and 15 runs scored on the year.

Marcell Ozuna cranked his seventh home run of the season Monday in the Marlins' loss to the Rays.

It was a solo shot in the fourth inning off Rays starter Jake Odorizzi. Ozuna also had a big game in Sunday's series finale against the Pirates and is batting .293/.353/.554 with seven home runs and 22 RBI in 24 games this year.
May 1 - 11:22 PM

Marcell Ozuna collected home run No. 6 against the Padres on Friday.

Even though the Marlins still have him batting behind the slumping Justin Bour, Ozuna has driven in 20 runs in 16 games. Unfortunately, he struck out as the tying run in the ninth inning tonight, which seemed like the first time this season that he's failed to come through with someone on base.
Apr 22 - 12:54 AM

Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI as the Marlins topped the Mets on Sunday.

Ozuna plated the club's second run with an RBI double in the sixth inning. He would have had to RBI on the play had Justin Bour not been cut down at the plate. Ozuna is sizzling at the plate to begin the season, slashing .404/.453/.745 with five long balls and 18 RBI.
Apr 16 - 5:41 PM

Marcell Ozuna finished with a solo home run and two strikeouts over three at-bats in Saturday's win against the Mets.

Ozuna is up to five homers, and he entered the game leading the majors with 16 RBI. He has hit safely in 10 of his first 11 outings, posting an impressive 1.150 OPS during the early going. Fantasy owners certainly are pleased with the start, and DFS players will want to strike while the iron is hot, too.

Marcell Ozuna hit a grand slam and finished 2-for-6 in Thursday's extra-innings loss to the Mets.

Ozuna teed off on a Robert Gsellman pitch in the first inning for the big fly. The homer was his fourth of the year, giving him an NL-best 16 RBI. He's also among the league leaders in batting average, hitting .389 with multiple hits in five of his nine games thus far. The 26-year-old enjoyed career highs in runs scored, OPS and tied his career best in homers last season, but if the first few weeks are any indication he's poised to set new highs in most offensive categories in 2017.
Apr 14 - 8:26 AM

Marcell Ozuna drove in six runs with two homers and a sac fly in leading the Marlins to an 8-3 win over the Braves on Tuesday.

Ozuna is crushing the ball so far, going 11-for-26 with three homers and 12 RBI. We liked him less this year than last, in part because the Marlins were planning on hitting him sixth behind Justin Bour (he opened last year hitting second). Obviously, it hasn't hurt him yet, and he's racked up the big RBI total even with Giancarlo Stanton and Bour off to weak starts. Still, it'd be nice to see him move up and maybe get a chance to score a few more runs.
Apr 11 - 11:37 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Mets.

The homer was the first of 2017 for Ozuna. He's now got hits in each of his first five games, and he's driven in runs in four of the five. We're expecting something approximating a career year for the 26-year-old, and we're not alone. He's off to a good start.
Apr 8 - 10:40 PM

Marcell Ozuna had a three-hit night Friday against the Mets.

Ozuna contributed with an RBI single in the fifth inning. He also drew a walk and scored a run on the night. The 26-year-old has hit safely in four straight games to begin the year as he attempts to turn the page on his brutal second half from last year. There’s still major upside here.
Apr 7 - 10:26 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk as the Marlins and Nationals played to a 5-5 tie Friday.

After a slow start to the spring, Ozuna is 7-for-20 with two homers and two doubles in his last six games. We'd like him a lot more for fantasy purposes if he played for another team in another ballpark. As is, he's likely to hit sixth in a middling lineup.
Mar 17 - 5:21 PM

Marcell Ozuna delivered a homer off the Cardinals' Luke Weaver and a sac fly on Sunday.

Ozuna seemed like a significantly better bet for fantasy purposes a year ago, when he was expected to bat second and the Marlins' ballpark reconfiguration seemed better for hitters. Marlins Park, though, was dreadful for right-handers last year, and Ozuna is slated to hit sixth going forward. Ozuna should get his 20 homers anyway, but he doesn't project as much of an asset in any other category.
Mar 12 - 5:26 PM

Marcell Ozuna is nursing some tightness in his shoulder.

Ozuna was already dealing with the tightness when he reported to camp, but the Marlins are saying that it's mild. He was spotted making throws from the outfield during drills Friday. Still, he'll be eased into Grapefruit League action for precautionary reasons. Ozuna batted .266/.321/.452 with 23 homers and 76 RBI for the Marlins last year.
