"He fouled that ball off his foot. He ended up being on crutches after the game," manager Mike Redmond said. "He will get a day off, and we’ll see if he is available to pinch-hit. He is out there, and he’s going to go through baseball activities, and we’ll see how he feels and if he is available for the game (Monday). I anticipate him to be ok for a pinch-hit, but we’ll see."

Marcell Ozuna still expected to start in CF despite bad spring


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna is having a pretty horrible spring at the plate. He's batting just .135 (5 for 37) with 12 strikeouts through 14 games.

"I’m taking too many pitches in the [strike] zone and swinging at bad pitches," Ozuna said, per The Miami Herald. "My timing sometimes is early. Sometimes it’s late. When I [swing] late I get a lot of outs. When I [swing] early I’m pretty good. I’m working with (hitting coach) Frank (Menechino) every day. He says swing down, don’t swing up, don’t hit fly balls. I’m watching videos."

Despite Reed Johnson and Jake Marisnick having productive springs, Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Tuesday he's "still expecting (Ozuna) to be out (in center field) on opening day."

"We feel comfortable with what he’s able to do," said Redmond, who points to the three walks Ozuna has drawn in his last three games as a sign of a more patient approach of late. "I think sometimes in spring training you just need a hit to kind of jump start you and get your confidence back and going."
