Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk as the Marlins and Nationals played to a 5-5 tie Friday.
After a slow start to the spring, Ozuna is 7-for-20 with two homers and two doubles in his last six games. We'd like him a lot more for fantasy purposes if he played for another team in another ballpark. As is, he's likely to hit sixth in a middling lineup. Mar 17 - 5:21 PM

Marcell Ozuna delivered a homer off the Cardinals' Luke Weaver and a sac fly on Sunday.

Ozuna seemed like a significantly better bet for fantasy purposes a year ago, when he was expected to bat second and the Marlins' ballpark reconfiguration seemed better for hitters. Marlins Park, though, was dreadful for right-handers last year, and Ozuna is slated to hit sixth going forward. Ozuna should get his 20 homers anyway, but he doesn't project as much of an asset in any other category.

Marcell Ozuna is nursing some tightness in his shoulder.

Ozuna was already dealing with the tightness when he reported to camp, but the Marlins are saying that it's mild. He was spotted making throws from the outfield during drills Friday. Still, he'll be eased into Grapefruit League action for precautionary reasons. Ozuna batted .266/.321/.452 with 23 homers and 76 RBI for the Marlins last year.

Marlins and OF Marcell Ozuna avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.5 million contract.

It's the first time the outfielder has been eligible for arbitration. Ozuna batted .266/.321/.452 with 23 longballs for the Marlins last season.

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) went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

Ozuna returned to the Marlins' lineup with a bang after missing the first week of September with a sore left wrist. The 25-year-old outfielder is now batting .270/.323/.472 with 23 doubles, 22 homers, 67 RBI, and 66 runs scored in 130 games this season.

Marcell Ozuna (wrist) could be ready Wednesday.

Ozuna hasn't played since the last day of August due to a sore left wrist, but he's making steady progress on the side. The 25-year-old outfielder has posted a decent .268/.322/.469 batting line with 22 home runs and 67 RBI in 129 games this season for Miami.

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

Ozuna hasn't played since August 31 due to a sore left wrist and isn't expected to return until at least Friday. Destin Hood, Christian Yelich, and Jeff Francoeur will start in the Marlins' outfield on Tuesday.
Tue, Sep 6, 2016 02:38:00 PM

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.
Sun, Sep 4, 2016 02:24:00 PM

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.
