Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that "numerous teams" are asking the Marlins about Marcell Ozuna, including the Indians.
Spencer notes that the Marlins aren't shopping Ozuna, but they have been scouting pitching in Cleveland of late. Ozuna was demoted to Triple-A earlier this month after batting just .249/.301/.337 over 79 games this season, but he's still just 24 years old and has a lot of promise. It's no surprise he's a popular guy with other teams. Jul 28 - 12:08 PM

Marlins optioned OF Marcell Ozuna to Triple-A New Orleans.

It's a very curious move for the Marlins, who are struggling as a team on offense, to demote their starting center fielder to Triple-A. While he has struggled of late, the 24-year-old is still hitting a respectable .249/.301/.337 on the season with four homers and 26 RBI in 79 games.

Marcell Ozuna is not in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

It looks to simply be a routine day off. Cole Gillespie is in center field in Ozuna's place.
Jul 3 - 1:40 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 0-for-3 before being removed in a double-switch Thursday against the Cardinals.

Ozuna is hitting .272 and his strikeout rate is down a bit, but the Marlins would probably trade a little bit of average if it meant his power came back. He has just four homers so far this year after hitting 23 as a 23-year-old last season.
Jun 25 - 10:08 PM

Marcell Ozuna had a nice night at the plate in a losing effort against the Reds on Friday, going 2-for-3 with a double.

Ozuna had half of the team's four total hits on the night and also drew a walk. He's enjoying a solid season in the middle of the Marlins lineup, hitting .281/.337/.382 with four homers and 26 RBI.
Jun 19 - 9:48 PM

Marcell Ozuna ripped a solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

He took Jays closer Brett Cecil deep in the ninth inning, but it only cut the deficit to five and that was as close as the Marlins got. Ozuna's power has been slow to come around this season, but he's riding an 11-game hitting streak that has his average up to .288.
Jun 10 - 3:04 PM

Marcell Ozuna hit a bases-loaded double and finished 2-for-4 with three RBI as the Marlins beat the Cubs 5-2 on Tuesday.

Ozuna came up with the bases loaded in the bottom of the fifth inning and cleared them with his 10th double of the year. The runs batted in were his first in more than a week, giving him 18 RBI on the year. Ozuna hasn't found the power stroke yet this year, hitting .272/.329/.372 overall.
Jun 2 - 9:56 PM

Marcell Ozuna is not in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

It looks like simply a day of rest. Ichiro Suzuki is handling center field in Ozuna's absence.
May 31 - 10:47 AM

Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

Both of Ozuna's RBI came in on a run-scoring single in the fourth inning. With the three hits, he bumped his average to .281. Ozuna smacked 23 homers a year ago, but has not found the power zone as of yet in 2015, with just three homers hit to this point.
May 24 - 4:24 PM

Marcell Ozuna is back in the Marlins' lineup Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Ozuna was excused from the team on Monday due to a personal matter, but he's already back. New Marlins manager Dan Jennings has him batting cleanup against Jeremy Hellickson.
May 19 - 3:06 PM

Marcell Ozuna has been excused from the Marlins to deal with a personal matter.

Ozuna was on the Marlins' original lineup card for Monday's series opener against the Diamondbacks, but he's now flying home to the Dominican Republic. Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald hears that he will likely be out for a few days. Ichiro Suzuki will play center field while he's out.
May 18 - 3:59 PM

Marcell Ozuna hit his second homer and walked Saturday against the Giants.

After going 26 games without a homer, Ozuna has two in three days. He looked lost for a spell at the beginning of the season, but he's back looking like a fine mixed-league outfielder now.
May 10 - 1:14 AM

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-5 with a solo homer and a pair of RBI in a 7-2 win against the Giants on Thursday.

Ozuna has been something or an irritating fantasy proposition thus far, too good to eject from your roster and not producing enough to help your lineup. The .293 average is nice, but it comes with just one homer (the one tonight) and one steal. Ozuna does sport an encouraging .363 OBP, though it's 45 points higher than his career mark.
May 8 - 1:00 AM

Marcell Ozuna went 4-for-4 with three doubles and an RBI to pace the Marlins offensive attack in Friday's 4-3 victory over the Phillies.

Ozuna's third and final double delivered the walk-off winner off Ken Giles in the ninth inning, plating teammate Giancarlo Stanton. He is off to a terrific start at the plate this season, slashing .315/.395/.411, though he has yet to homer and has just five RBI in 21 games.
May 1 - 11:58 PM

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.
