Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald hears that Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria "is down" on Marcell Ozuna and the club "will consider trading him" this offseason.
Jackson adds that "some members of the front office" would like to hang on to Ozuna, but the outfielder looks to be in Loria's doghouse and his vote obviously counts the most. Ozuna spent a surprising amount of time in the minors this season, and it appears that was probably at least in part due to Loria souring on him. Slated to turn 25 next month, Ozuna hit a disappointing .259/.308/.383 with 10 homers in 2015 and will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. However, he slugged 23 homers and drove in 85 runs in 2014 and would surely draw some trade interest if the Marlins do indeed make him available. Oct 5 - 5:15 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 9-5 victory over the Braves.

Ozuna cracked the second of two solo homers in the seventh inning, which put the Marlins up 9-4 at the time. The outfielder has had a tough year, including a prolonged stint in the minors, and is carrying a .255/.303/.383 with 10 home runs and 41 RBI.

Marcell Ozuna belted a two-run homer and scored twice in Wednesday's win over the Braves.

The Marlins went ahead for good on a Martin Prado sac fly in the fifth and Ozuna provided some cushion with his blast later in the inning. It was his fourth longball in 18 games since his return from the minors. Ozuna has now gone deep eight times on the season to go along with 33 RBI.
Sep 2 - 3:31 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Friday's win over the Nationals.

Ozuna hit an absolute bomb to dead center against Nationals starter Max Scherzer in the fourth inning. It traveled approximately 427 feet. He's picked up two hits in four of his last five games and has played well since being recalled to the majors on August 15. The 24-year-old outfielder makes for a decent mixed-league option, especially with the return of his power.

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a stolen base Thursday as the Marlins topped the Phillies 9-7.

Ozuna is 5-for-20 with two homers since being recalled by the Marlins following his overly lengthy stint in Triple-A, which was designed to prevent him from qualifying for arbitration as a super-two player this winter. He could be a decent mixed-league outfielder the rest of the way now that his power seems to have returned.
Aug 20 - 11:50 PM

Marlins recalled OF Marcell Ozuna from Triple-A New Orleans.

The 24-year-old has turned things around offensively since his demotion to Triple-A, where he slashed .317/.379/.558 with five homers and 11 RBI in 33 games. It's unclear how much playing time he'll see initially in Miami, but is certainly worthy of a flier in NL-only formats.
Aug 15 - 1:27 PM

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.
Jul 5 - 5:22 PM

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.
