Marcell Ozuna’s Revenge

Nearly a month ago the Marlins made the somewhat curious decision to send Marcell Ozuna down to Triple-A. Just looking at his offensive numbers — and not reading into their potential displeasure with him showing up to camp somewhat out of shape or he and agent Scott Boras' rejection of an extension— it isn't like Ozuna was setting the world on fire with his bat. Owner of a...

Marlins promote outfielder Jordany Valdespin from Triple-A

The Miami Marlins selected the contract of outfielder Jordany Valdespin from Triple-A New Orleans prior to Tuesday's game in Boston.

Despite 'sophomore jinx,' Marlins still happy with outfielders Yelich, Ozuna

The Miami Marlins were expected to have one of the best outfields in baseball this season, but it hasn't quite panned out that way so far.

Bear or Bull: To Foretell Marcell

Marcell Ozuna is a powerful human being who crushes baseballs for a living. Marcel the Monkey Forecasting System was developed by Tom Tiger. What does each entity have to do with the other? Not a whole lot other than the fact that they share the same first name. And I just wanted to cram as much wildlife as possible into this post. Heck, whenever a Marlin hits a home run in Miami...

Marlins’ Marcell Ozuna Celebrates Catching Line Drive He Didn’t Catch (Video)

The Miami Marlins had a rough Opening Day. Things didn’t start so hot for Miami when its game against the Atlanta Braves was delayed in the second inning due to rain at Marlins Park, which has a retractable roof. Then, in the sixth inning, center fielder Marcell Ozuna allowed a runner to put himself in scoring position in a pretty embarrassing way. Braves center fielder Eric Young...

Christian Yelich: His Upside and His Limitations

The Miami Marlins’ outfield is one of the best and most exciting in recent memory. Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich combine current tools and skills with ample future projection. At 25, Stanton is the oldest member of the group. You might have to go back to the early-’70s San Francisco Giants and their crew of […]

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...

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

Few teams significantly improved their roster -- at least on paper -- this offseason more than the Miami Marlins. Despite losing ace Jose Fernandez and slugger Giancarlo Stanton to injury by season's end, the Marlins improved by 15 wins. The front office and coaching staff knew it had a talented, young core. So the Marlins sought out complementary pieces to fill the remaining holes...

Could the Miami Marlins have the best outfield in baseball?

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. Until injuries to Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton cut short their seasons in September, the Marlins statistically boasted the most productive group in the majors. Along with Christian Yelich, the trio combined for 69 home runs and 244 RBI. Stanton is a finalist for National League Most...
