The Miami Marlins haven't been pleased with OF Marcell Ozuna, according to a team official. He has been reportedly running to first base more slowly than last season. Some internally believe he could be in better shape. He also recently made a defensive gaffe which angered team officials and was benched a game for tardiness.
Fantasy Tip: Ozuna was a solid FantasyScore option last season with several nice offensive runs, but he is lost this season and not worth using at $3,700 (or 7.4% of cap).

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich (lower back) was scratched Tuesday, April 21, against the Philadelphia Phillies, due to lower-back tightness. OF Marcell Ozuna will hit fifth in the order, while OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in left field and bat sixth.
Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) could be worth a rare start in FantasyScore contests with an excellent matchup against the Phillies and SP Jerome Williams. Suzuki has five hits in 26 plate appearances this season, but is just $200 more than the minimum price on FantasyScore, and will have a nice spot in the Marlins batting order for driving in some runs.

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is taking the day off Friday, April 17. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in center field and hitting sixth in the batting order against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon.
Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has four hits in his first 17 at-bats in 2015. At age 41, Suzuki isn't anywhere near the offensive force he was in his days with the Seattle Mariners. However, he excels against right-handed pitchers and is 31-for-95 (.326) with three home runs in his career against Colon. Consider Suzuki a value play as a sleeper at FantasyScore this evening.

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna and his agent, Scott Boras, are not in a hurry to sign a contract extension with the club.
Fantasy Tip: After hitting 23 home runs and driving in 85 runs in 2014, Ozuna is still somewhat of a sleeper, since he's only been in the big leagues for the last two seasons. In an upgraded and upcoming Miami lineup, Ozuna could see a repeat of 2014, and he makes for a decent second outfielder in fantasy leagues.
