Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and an RBI double in Wednesday's win over the Cardinals.
Ozuna cracked a solo home run in the third inning to give the Marlins a 7-0 advantage. He would come through with an RBI double one inning later. The outfielder is in the midst of a fantastic season. On the micro level, he has picked up hits in eight of his last 10 games, with five extra-base hits in his last four games. And on the macro level, Ozuna is slashing a stellar .315/.372/.576 with 23 homers and 64 RBI in 83 games. Those 23 homers tie his career-high for a campaign and we have yet to even reach the All-Star break. Jul 5 - 11:41 PM

The slugger is in the midst of a strong campaign this year, hitting .317/.376/.573 with 22 homers and 59 RBI in 80 games. He is just one home run shy of matching the career-high-tying 23 he swatted in 2016.
Jul 2 - 6:53 PM

Marcell Ozuna is getting the night off Thursday.

Ichiro Suzuki will start in left field and bat seventh versus Mets right-hander Seth Lugo. It's a routine breather for Ozuna, who's in the midst of a full-on breakout.
Jun 29 - 2:29 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 1-for-3 in Wednesday's shutout loss to the Mets.

The Marlins couldn't do anything more than scatter a few singles against Steven Matz and the Mets' bullpen. Ozuna was lifted for a defensive replacement late in the game to give him some extra rest in the blowout. He is having a breakout season, batting .315/.378/.565 with 20 homers and 54 RBI.
Jun 29 - 12:13 AM

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

Ozuna launched his 20th homer of the year in the second inning, the only damage the Marlins could muster against Cubs starter Jake Arrieta. He ranks behind only Cody Bellinger in the National League in homers, and he's also among the league leaders in RBI (53) and rate stats. In a forgettable year for the Marlins, the 26-year-old is hitting a less-forgettable .326/.391/.593.

Marcell Ozuna clobbered his 19th home run on Tuesday as the Marlins fell to the Nationals.

His two-run blast off of Gio Gonzalez pulled the Marlins to within three runs at 6-3 in the fifth inning. Ozuna also singled in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4. He's having a terrific year in the middle of the Marlins' lineup, slashing .330/.396/.592 with 19 homers and 52 RBI.

Jun 18 - 4:39 PM

Marcell Ozuna clubbed his 17th home run of the season Wednesday in the Marlins' 11-6 victory over the Athletics.

Ozuna went deep for a solo shot off A's starter Daniel Gossett in the bottom of the second inning and smacked an RBI double off reliever Liam Hendricks in the bottom of the sixth. He also tallied an RBI on a groundout in the third. Ozuna, 26, is now slashing .333/.393/.590 in 64 games this season with Miami. He's on pace for 43 home runs and 119 RBI.
Jun 14 - 4:06 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-3 with a homer and a walk as the Marlins defeated the A's 8-1 on Tuesday.

Ozuna has hit .265, .269, .259 and .266 in his four seasons as a big leaguer. Right now, he's at .332, even though he's striking out at close to his career rate. The increased power suggests he's taken a real step forward, but it'd still be quite a surprise if he hits .300 over the final 3 1/2 months.
Jun 13 - 10:49 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Sunday's loss to the Pirates.

Jun 10 - 8:54 PM

Marcell Ozuna swatted a solo home run off Cubs starter John Lackey on Wednesday.

It was his only hit of the game in four trips to the plate. The longball was his 15th of the season and he is on pace to blow past his career high of 23, which he accomplished both in 2014 and 2016. Ozuna owns a .323 batting average with 41 RBI through 58 games. The 26-year-old must now be considered one of the best fantasy outfielders in baseball.
Jun 8 - 1:12 AM
