Marcell Ozuna raking when not fanning


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Marlins rookie outfielder Marcell Ozuna is still striking out like crazy, but he has certainly been productuve when he does make contact.

Power may be legit for Marcell Ozuna


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/6/2014) I've been slow to embrace the Marlins' Marcell Ozuna, in part because his plate discipline is horrible.

But that doesn't stop him from hitting the ball a long way when he does make contact. His 411-foot blast Thursday gave him five home runs in his last 14 games and 11 on the season.

He wouldn't be the first power hitter to succeed in spite of a low walk rate. Adam Jones is just one notable example. And while Ozuna certainly isn't that good, he's not giving anyone the impression he is. His poor plate discipline is reflected in his batting average, which entered play Thursday at a modest .274.

As for the power, Ozuna had several 20 homer seasons in the minors, which are rarer than you might think outside of the California League and the Pacific Coast League, so he may well have the capacity for 30 as he enters his mid-20s.

Since what he's doing in terms of batting average isn't so far-fetched either, yeah, maybe he really is this good. I'd prefer him in Rotisserie leagues to Head-to-Head -- and wouldn't trust him as much more than a fourth outfielder even there -- but he deserves a longer leash going forward.


Marcell Ozuna drives in four in big win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna sparked a massive offensive performance Thursday, in an 11-6 win over the Rays.

Ozuna led a well-rounded effort for the Marlins, as he drove in four runs in the win. He was 3 for 5, and drove in a run with each hit, including two on a ninth-inning home run, his 11th of the season.

Ozuna is now hitting .274/.319/.466 with 11 home runs and 39 RBI in 58 games this season, already having surpassed his totals in both categories from his rookie year, in 12 fewer games. 


Marcell Ozuna finding his stroke


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Marlins center fielder Marcell Ozuna has hit .314 over his last 10 games, with three homers and seven RBI. He has three two-hit games in that span and has upped his average to .265/.313/.449.

Hitters to sit in Week 10


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
