Ten players ready to make the leap in 2015

Trying to find a player due for a breakout season is fun, especially if: a) it’s a player from your favorite team and you tell other fans you’ve found a player to watch, or b) you play fantasy baseball and like rubbing it in to your friends that you know way more than they do. Either way, it’s an opportunity to prove how smart you are to strangers and friends. Who doesn...

2015 TOC top ten: outfields

What do you want in an outfield? Is one superstar good enough? How about three above average hitters that aren’t great in the field? Maybe you’re looking for the inverse – three above average fielders that aren’t so good at the plate.

On the same page: Marlins, Ichiro equally eager for upcoming possibilities

The Miami Marlins front office entered this offseason -- like it does any other -- aiming to build its deepest 25-man roster possible. After revamping the infield and adding depth to the rotation, it still sought a fourth outfielder to back up Gold Glover Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna and two-time All-Star Giancarlo Stanton. Instead of settling with a journeyman, the Marlins took...

After full MLB season, Yelich, Ozuna could offer Marlins in-house improvements

So the Marlins sought out complementary pieces to fill the remaining holes...

Player Profile #154: Marcell Ozuna | OF | MIA

As mentioned in our Yan Gomes fantasy projection, Marcell Ozuna was one of nine first-time 20-homer players in 2014. That he hit just three home runs in 291 PA in his 2013 rookie season was nothing but a fluke — this man has power. Of the 67 players who hit at least 18 HR last year, Ozuna’s average distance (403.9 feet) was good for 15th, tied with Jose Bautista (according to...

Marlins position analysis: Outfielders

If 2014 taught the Miami Marlins anything, it's that the club's strength lies in its outfield.
