The Athletics are likely to target Marlins outfielders Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna via trade this offseason, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Slusser says their preference is for a right-handed hitter, which makes some sense, but the offense isn't good enough to be picky. With the Marlins almost assuredly to be in rebuilding mode this offseason, it wouldn't be a surprise to see either Ozuna or Yelich end up on a different roster for the 2018 season. Ozuna's rocky history with the Marlins could make him the most available as well, and after his outstanding .312/.376/.548 line in 2017, he could return a few nice prospects in return. Both contracts are also worth considering, as Ozuna will be a free agent after 2019, and Yelich is owed over $46 million over the next four years. Nov 8 - 9:43 PM

Marcell Ozuna hit a pair of homers, walked and scored three times Friday versus the Diamondbacks.

Ozuna drove in three runs, giving him 118 RBI for the year. He'd have a great chance of breaking the Marlins' single-season RBI record of 121, set by Preston Wilson in 2000, except for the fact that Giancarlo Stanton just tied it tonight.
Sep 23 - 2:03 AM

Marcell Ozuna finished 2-for-3 with two RBI, a walk, and a run scored Wednesday in the Marlins' defeat of the Mets.

Sep 19 - 3:35 PM

Marcell Ozuna singled and ripped a solo home run in Tuesday's extra-innings loss to the Phillies.

Ozuna took Hector Neris deep to lead off the top of the 10th inning to give the Marlins the lead again after they blew a save in the ninth.

Sep 13 - 12:19 AM

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored in a loss to the Braves on Thursday.

Ozuna thought he got all of one in the first inning, muscling a ball to the opposite field, but he had to turn on the jets to get to third base when the ball bounced off the very top of the wall instead. He later smacked an RBI single in the seventh inning. The 26-year-old remains sixth in the National League with his 32 homers, and he's now third with 109 RBI. Ozuna is batting a robust .307/.373/.545 in what's already going to go down as a career year.
Sep 7 - 11:57 PM

Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in a victory over the Phillies on Saturday.

Ozuna hit his 32nd homer of the season in the first inning, taking Phillies starter Aaron Nola deep for a two-run dinger. He also notched RBI singles in the fifth and sixth innings. The 26-year-old is having a monster year at the dish to date, batting .310/.377/.554 with those 32 homers, 107 RBI and 76 runs scored. He ranks among the league leaders in a number of categories, including homers, RBI and batting average.
Sep 3 - 12:48 AM

Marcell Ozuna hit his 31st homer of the season in Saturday's extra-innings win over the Padres.

Bonzo! The 26-year-old went deep against Padres starter Dinelson Lamet to lead off the fourth inning. He's now fourth in the league in homers (31), third in RBI (102) and ninth in batting average, hitting .311/.376/.560 this year. A career year in 2016 is being dwarfed by Ozuna's monster 2017 campaign.
Aug 27 - 12:47 AM

Marcell Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead three-run homer in Friday’s 8-6 victory over the Padres.

Ozuna put the Marlins ahead when he took Kirby Yates deep in the seventh. He’s now up to 30 homers and 101 RBI to go along with a .311/.376/.556 batting line over 126 games. Ozuna had a big first half last year before fading after the All-Star break, but he’s finally put together a true breakout year.
Aug 25 - 10:33 PM

Marcell Ozuna went hitless in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies but salvaged some fantasy value by drawing a walk and stealing his first base of the season.

In fact the steal was his first since the 2015 season and only the 10th of his five-year career. But that's OK because his fantasy owners weren't after his wheels when they drafted him. The outfielder is batting .306/.371/.546 with 29 home runs and 71 runs scored. His 97 RBI rank fifth in the major leagues.
Aug 23 - 10:52 PM

Before the Mets' onslaught in the bottom of the sixth inning, Ozuna's RBI single in the top half actually gave the Marlins a fleeting lead. The run batted in gives Ozuna 92 RBI on the year, good for fifth-best in the National League. The 26-year-old hasn't cooled down the stretch, keeping up his hot-hitting ways from the first half en route to a robust .307/.370/.542 line through Saturday's contest.
Aug 19 - 11:35 PM
