Ozuna owns a 14-game hitting streak as well as a .279/.326/.467 line with 15 home runs and 51 RBI in 323 at-bats.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Despite not making the starting lineup Sunday due to an apparent hamstring injury, Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna smacked a pinch-hit solo home run in his team's 4-3 loss to the A's.

Ozuna said Sunday that he expects to play in the team's next game Tuesday, so the injury appears to be a relatively minor issue. Sunday's home run extended his modest hitting streak to six games, and Ozuna owns a .265/.311/.454 line with 14 home runs and 47 RBI in 291 at-bats.


Marcell Ozuna absent from Sunday's lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna was not in the starting lineup Sunday against Oakland after leaving Saturday's game with what appeared to be a right hamstring injury. Christian Yelich, who was activated off the disabled list Sunday, started in center field in Ozuna's absence.

Though, Ozuna said his absence was merely precautionary and he expects to play Tuesday against the Phillies.

"They don’t want to lose me for two or three innings," Ozuna said Sunday, per The Miami Herald. "Tuesday I’ll be able to play."

Ozuna is batting .290 (9 for 31) with one double, one home run, four RBI, five runs, two walks and nine strikeouts in his last eight games.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna was forced to leave Saturday's game during the seventh inning, due to what appeared to be an injury to his right leg.

Marcell Ozuna getting rest Friday night


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna hasn't had a day off since June 12. That is, until Friday night. He is out of the lineup for the game against Oakland.

Ozuna has hit safely in five of his last six games and has been a surprise this season with 13 home runs and 45 RBI in 282 at-bats.


Marcell Ozuna homers, triples in loss Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna had a big offensive game Saturday, going 2 for 3 with a walk, a triple, a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in his team's 8-6 loss to the Pirates.

Ozuna continues to strike out at an alarming rate, racking up 19 strikeouts in his last 11 games, but he hasn't let him limit his power at the plate. He owns a .271/.319/.466 line with 12 home runs and 42 RBI in 236 at-bats.


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.

Ozuna has fanned at least once in every game since May 2. His strikeout total in nine games since then is 16, but yet he is 12 for 39 in June with two home runs, six RBI and six runs.

His stat line on the year is .266/.310/.441. He's on pace to drive in 100 runs this season.


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.

Marcell Ozuna smacks ninth home run in loss Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna went 2 for 3 with a walk and a solo home run to represent his team's entire offense in Sunday's 7-1 loss to the Brewers.

Ozuna's bat has been hot as of late, as he has three home runs and three two-hit performances over the last five days. He has hit .261/.307/.443 with nine home runs and 31 RBI in 176 at-bats.


Marcell Ozuna heating up after prolonged slump


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna homered for the second straight game Thursday against the Phillies. After hitting a grand slam Wednesday, Ozuna clubbed a two-run homer off Cole Hamels Thursday.

After being mired in a 8-for-57 slump to begin May, Ozuna is 4 for 8 (.500) in his last two games. He has two home runs, seven RBI and four runs since Wednesday.


Marcell Ozuna shows signs of life with grand slam


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014)  Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna showed real signs of breaking out of his slump Wednesday, as he played a big part in a 14-5 win over the Phillies.

Ozuna, who entered the game hitting just .140 in the month of May, drove in five runs while going 2 for 4. He brought in four of those runs with a grand slam, his seventh home run of the season and first since May 3.

Ozuna is hitting .255/.301/.416 in 161 at-bats on the season. 


Marcell Ozuna looking for answers in May


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna was hitting well over .300 after the first month of the season, and the 23-year-old seemed to be figuring himself out after an up-and-down rookie season.

Unfortunately, the month of May has brought back the bad side of his inconsistency, as he entered play Wednesday against the Phillies hitting just .140. A big part of his step back has been an inability to make contact; after striking out 21 times in 100 at-bats in April, he has already whiffed 22 times in 57 trips in May.

"He goes through spurts where he's too aggressive, and then he's too patient," manager Mike Redmond told MLB.com Wednesday. "He will take some fastballs and swing at some breaking balls, which happens with a lot of young guys. The big leagues are a monster."

Ozuna is down to a .687 OPS in 44 games this season, after posting a .693 number as a rookie. He does already have 23 RBI and six home runs, in 44 games, after hitting three longballs in 70 games last season. 


Marcell Ozuna cranks fifth home run vs. Dodgers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna went 2 for 6 with a three-run home run in his team's 9-7, extra-innings loss to the Dodgers Saturday.

Ozuna's home run cut the Dodgers' lead to 7-6 in the seventh inning before the Marlins tied the game in the ninth. He has hit .289/.339/.465 with five home runs and 19 RBI in 114 at-bats.


Marcell Ozuna goes deep in blowout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) Marlins Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna extended his hitting streak to six games in a big way Wednesday, as he drove in three runs in a 9-3 win over the Braves.

Ozuna did much of his damage in his first at-bat, as he clubbed a three-run home run to right field to put the Marlins up early. He finished the game 2 for 4 with two strikeouts overall.

Ozuna is off to a strong start in his second season, hitting .310/.364/.480 through his first 100 at-bats. 


Feeling optimistic about Marcell Ozuna


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) When Marcell Ozuna hit .331 over his first 36 games as a major-leaguer last year, I said it couldn't last, suggesting his poor plate discipline would catch up to him in time, especially given his lack of experience. And seeing as he finished the year batting .265, that proved to be the case.

But to be fair, he never got a chance to recover from his first ever slump, tearing a ligament in his thumb and having season-ending surgery in late July. By beginning this season like he has, he's done his best to relieve concerns that he simply caught the league by surprise last year.

Particularly batting in front of a rejuvenated Giancarlo Stanton, Ozuna should see plenty of pitches to hit, making the poor plate discipline less of a concern. He'll need to take a step forward power-wise to make an impact in standard mixed leagues, but considering he had back-to-back-to-back 20-homer seasons in the minors, he didn't even show the best he has to offer in that department last year.

With all he has to prove still, I'm unwilling to rank Ozuna much higher than 70th among outfielders, but if you're in a position to sell out for upside, he certainly offers that. If you liked Avisail Garcia as a sleeper, you should like Ozuna as well.


Marcell Ozuna plates four, launches third home run vs. Seattle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) For the third time in his last four games, Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna registered a multi-hit game, including his third home run of the season in his team's 7-0 victory over the Mariners Saturday night.

Ozuna launched a three-run home run off starter Roenis Elias in the sixth inning. He also added an RBI single in the eighth inning. He finished 2 for 4 with a run scored and a season-high four RBI. He is hitting .343 with three homers and 10 RBI through his first 67 at-bats.

Marcell Ozuna knocks four hits in win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna went 4 for 5 with three runs and one RBI in his team's 11-2 win over the Nationals Tuesday.

Ozuna jumped out to a hot start this season, but Tuesday's four-hit performance was his first multihit effort since April 3. He has hit .327/.362/.473 with two home runs and five RBI in 55 at-bats.


Marcell Ozuna only misses one game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna returned to the starting lineup Tuesday vs. Washington after sitting out Monday's game with a foot injury. After batting .467 (7 for 15) in his first four games, Ozuna is batting .200 (7 for 35) in his last nine games.

Marcell Ozuna (foot) hopes to miss just one game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2014) Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna was held out of the starting lineup Monday against the Nationals after fouling a baseball off the top of his left foot Sunday. Ozuna said he feels good and is hoping to miss just one game, per MLB.com.

"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."
