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.
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.
Mar 14 - 3:59 PM

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.
