ESPN's Mark Saxon reports that Marcell Ozuna is "one name to keep an eye on" as the Cardinals search for a center fielder.

It's unclear whether Saxon is hearing the Cards are interested or whether he just sees Ozuna as a potential fit since the Marlins need pitching and St. Louis has pitching to trade. Ozuna wouldn't really help St. Louis in their quest for better defense and a leadoff hitter, but he would give them power with a pair of 23-homer seasons over the last three years. The outfielder turned 26 earlier this month and is under team control through 2019.

Marcell Ozuna hit a home run and drove in four runs to lead the Marlins over the Braves on Wednesday.

He crushed a three-run bomb to give the Marlins a lead in the sixth inning. He added an RBI-single in the eighth. He has been nursing knee and wrist injuries but they didn't hold him back today. Ozuna is having a bounceback season and is up to .270/.324/.470 with 23 longballs, 69 runs and 72 RBI overall.

Marcell Ozuna (knee) is back in the Marlins' lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

Ozuna was forced to exit Monday's game shortly after he was hit in the left knee by a pitch, but fortunately he only suffered a bruise. He'll bat fifth against right-hander Matt Wisler.

Marcell Ozuna was diagnosed with a bruised left knee.

Ozuna was hit in the knee by a pitch in the fourth inning of Monday's game. He's been banged up quite a bit recently, but it's probably safe to call him day-to-day.

Marcell Ozuna exited Monday's game against the Braves in the fourth inning with an apparent knee injury.

Ozuna was struck on the knee by a pitch to begin the inning, but stayed in initially before later hitting Mike Foltynewicz with a comebacker in the same frame. Ichiro Suzuki moved over to right field while Derek Dietrich took over in left. The Marlins should pass along an update on Ozuna soon.

Marcell Ozuna is not in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

Ozuna is hitless in six at-bats since returning from a wrist injury, but it appears this is nothing more than a maintenance day. The Marlins are going with an outfield of Derek Dietrich, Christian Yelich and Ichiro Suzuki.

Marcell Ozuna (wrist) is out of the Marlins' lineup again on Tuesday against the Phillies.

Marcell Ozuna (wrist) won't return to the Marlins' lineup until at least Friday, at the earliest.

Ozuna will miss a fourth straight start on Sunday with a sore left wrist and it appears he'll be out for at least seven games all told. He'll test the wrist out on Wednesday and hopes to be back in the lineup Friday. Clayton Kershaw (back) is returning for the Dodgers that day.

Marcell Ozuna (wrist) said Friday that he doubts he'll be able to play in the weekend series against the Indians.

That means he'll miss at least four straight games after tweaking his left wrist while making a diving catch Wednesday. Ozuna is hoping to return to the lineup Monday when he Marlins return from their road trip.

Marcell Ozuna (wrist) remained out of the Marlins' lineup Friday.

Marcell Ozuna (wrist) is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday versus the Mets.

Ozuna injured his left wrist while making a diving catch in the third inning Wednesday night. There's no exact diagnosis yet, but it's looking like this could be a lengthy absence. Christian Yelich is in center field and Jeff Francoeur is in left on Thursday. Daily Slant: Ozuna and J.T. Realmuto will take a seat with Jeff Francoeur and Jeff Mathis filling in, so it'll remain a RH heavy lineup which works in Jacob deGrom's favor. He's struggled over his last few turns, but deGrom's velocity hasn't decreased much (it was down slightly in his last start) - his biggest concern has been hard contact (he didn't generate a single weakly hit ball vs. SF). Those issues should be alleviated in a great home draw against a watered down lineup.

Marcell Ozuna was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Mets due to a sore left wrist.

Ozuna made a diving, tumbling catch in the third inning but tweaked something in his left wrist as he met the ground. Jeff Francoeur replaced him in right field to start the fourth. Ozuna will be reevaluated by team doctors on Thursday. Consider him day-to-day for now.
