Marcell Ozuna was scratched from Sunday's lineup after showing up late to the ballpark.
Ichiro Suzuki will start in center field instead. Chances are it's just a one-game punishment for Ozuna, who is hitting .263/.263/.263 in his first five contests. Apr 12 - 10:25 AM

Marcell Ozuna had two hits and knocked in three of the Marlins' four runs Saturday against the Nationals.

Ozuna had his three RBI from the third spot in the order today. Unfortunately, he'll probably be batting sixth behind Michael Morse and Martin Prado during the regular season, which will take a toll on his run and RBI numbers.

Batting sixth for the Marlins, Marcell Ozuna struck out in both of his at-bats Thursday versus the Cardinals.

Ozuna is a very popular outfield pick this year, but we'd like him better if the Marlins hadn't signed Michael Morse and penciled him into the cleanup spot. Hitting sixth isn't likely to lead to very good run and RBI numbers for the 24-year-old. He'll probably need to overtake Morse in the lineup to fulfill his destiny as a top-25 outfielder.
Mar 5 - 3:38 PM

X-rays on Marcell Ozuna's right ankle came back negative.

While nothing is broken, it looked like Ozuna suffered a bad sprain and he seems likely to be done for the season. The outfielder has hit .269/.317/.455 with 23 homers and 85 RBI this year.

Marcell Ozuna left Sunday's game against the Nationals with a right ankle injury.

Ozuna rolled the ankle on the second base bag. He was helped off the field by Marlins manager Mike Redmond and the trainer and looked to be in plenty of pain. More should be available regarding his status later Sunday, but it certainly looked like a season-ending injury.

Marcell Ozuna homered in his fourth consecutive game, but the Marlins suffered a loss to the Brewers on Thursday.

Ozuna's two-run home run in the eighth inning off of Will Smith provided the Marlins' only offense on the night, and Ozuna's only success at the plate. Ozuna has had a ridiculous start to September, batting .375 (15-for-40) with four home runs and 13 RBI. On the season, he's hitting .270/.319/.464 with 23 home runs and 85 RBI.

Marcell Ozuna homered in a third straight game Monday, giving him 22 bombs on the year.

Remember when the Marlins were seriously considering going with Jake Marisnick over Ozuna in center field this year? Ozuna has fanned 153 times in 142 games, but with 22 homers and 83 RBI, he's been quite the force in the middle of the Marlins order, and at age 23, he only figures to get better.

Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Ozuna walked twice as well, reaching base in all five of his plate appearances. Ozuna hit an RBI single in the third inning before smashing a solo home run in the ninth. The 23-year-old is hitting .270/.320/.456 with 21 home runs and 82 RBI on the season.

Marcell Ozuna went 4-for-5 and plated four runs on Friday, leading the Marlins in their 11-3 thrashing of the Braves in Miami.

Two of his four hits in the contest were doubles and he also scored a pair of runs in the contest. He singled home a run in the first inning, smacked an RBI double in the third and added on a two-run double to cap the game's scoring in the eighth inning. For the season, he's slashing .264/.313/.441 with 19 homers and 78 RBI.

Marcel Ozuna had a nice night at the dish in Friday's loss to the Braves, tallying three hits including an RBI double.

Ozuna's RBI double off Ervin Santana opened the game's scoring in the sixth inning. With his 3-for-4 effort on Friday, he's now slashing .266/.317/.444 with 19 homers and 72 RBI on the season.

Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-5 with a grand slam and five RBI in Friday's 13-5 win over the Rockies.

The grand slam came in the ninth inning off of Rockies' reliever Juan Nicasio. It was Ozuna's 19th home run this season. The slew of RBI brought him up to 70 on the year. Ozuna had been struggling this August (.210/.300/.371), so maybe this grand slam gets him going. For the year he's hitting .261/.316/.440.

Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

He scored a pair of runs on the day. Ozuna's blast was a long one to left field in the ninth inning off of closer Neftali Feliz and gives him a longball in two straight games. Although his OBP sits at .316, Ozuna has provided 18 homers and 65 RBI from center field.

Marcell Ozuna hit his 16th home run in Sunday's win over the Astros.

Ozuna went 2-for-4 in the game, and the solo shot in the sixth inning gave the Marlins a three-run lead. He's got 16 home runs and 55 RBI on the season, but Sunday's homer was his first since July 8. Ozuna is batting .270/.318/.456 in what's been a small breakout year for the 23-year-old.

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

And with that, his 15-game hitting streak is finished. Given his penchant for the strikeout, we wouldn't count on much from him on the batting average front, but his power is arriving in a hurry. The 23-year-old outfielder already has 15 homers through 90 games which puts him on pace for just over 25 for the year.

Marcell Ozuna hit a two-run, game-winning homer in the ninth inning to sink the Diamondbacks 2-1 on Tuesday.

In a 1-0 game, Ozuna took Addison Reed deep with Ed Lucas on first to stun the Snakes. The center fielder finished 2-for-4, adding a double. Now riding a 14-game hitting streak, Ozuna is slashing .279/.326/.467 and is on pace for 27 homers, 92 RBI, and 81 runs. He's been one of fantasy baseball's breakout performers after almost not making the team out of spring training.
