Marlins | Marcell Ozuna dropped to seventh

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:46:54 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is hitting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) hit .250 (25-for-100) with a homer, 11 RBI and an OPS of just .622 in June and has seen his average fall to .261 on the season. If he's not contributing in average for his fantasy owners, he's not giving you much at all. For the time being, you should look to avoid him on FantasyScore, too, until he turns things around.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna registers three hits

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 19:17:10 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna went 3-for-4 with a run and a double during the Marlins' 4-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) entered the game in a 5-for-32 slump with a .393 OPS, so his fantasy owners should hope this will kick-start his production back up. FantasyScore players should view Ozuna as a value play when he faces a favorable matchup, although, it might be wise to wait until he strings together a few more solid games before utilizing him in contests.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna out of the lineup

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 12:38:13 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Monday, June 15. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in center field and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has gone 5-for 20 this month and also has three RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Suzuki in their lineups but may be able to find better options.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna's hit streak snapped

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 20:15:14 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna was hitless in four at-bats Saturday, June 13, against the Colorado Rockies, ending his hitting streak at 13 games.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,300; or 6.6% of cap) is still a solid FantasyScore bargain considering the fact he is hitting .340 (18-for-53) with a homer and nine RBIs over the past 14 games.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna plates three

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 19:17:43 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna hit a three-run double, scored a run and added another hit during the Marlins 5-2 win over the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, June 2. Ozuna now has 18 RBI on the season.

Fantasy Tip: After a 25-home run, 85-RBI season in 2014, the 24-year-old Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) had a lot of expectations looming over his fantasy stock this year. However, to date, he has been rather unimpressive. The double Tuesday was just his 14th extra-base hit of the season, and he only has three home runs. Over the 25 games leading into Tuesday, Ozuna was hitting just .228 with a .608 OPS, so hopefully his three-RBI showing is a sign of things to come. In favorable matchups, FantasyScore players can turn to him as a viable value play in contests given his cap-friendly price.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna out of the lineup

Sun, 31 May 2015 08:46:40 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Ichiro Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) will take his place in the starting lineup and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna bumped back to fifth

Wed, 27 May 2015 08:31:32 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is batting fifth against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) recorded a hit in each of his seven games batting second, but he'll return to the five-hole Wednesday. While he is trending in the right direction, Ozuna lands in a daunting matchup against Gerrit Cole. FantasyScore players should view Ozuna as a high-risk, high-reward option Wednesday. Batting fifth will increase his RBI opportunities while likely hindering his runs scored upside, and the switch won't have a significant impact on his overall value.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna, Martin Prado flop in lineup

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:29:10 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is hitting second in the batting order against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Chase Anderson Wednesday, May 20, while 3B Martin Prado moves from the two-hole to cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .182 (4-for-22) with one RBI since May 12, and Prado ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting .257 (19-for-74) with a homer and six RBI in May. The lineup shift was done with the intent of getting Miami's lackluster offense going. It could work tonight against Anderson, who has pitched very well this year, but until we see results, it's probably best to consider both Ozuna and Prado mediocre plays.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna returns to lineup

Tue, 19 May 2015 14:30:07 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna is returning to the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jeremy Hellickson Tuesday, May 19, after sitting out for personal reasons Monday, May 18. Ozuna is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) only has three home runs and 11 RBI on the season hitting in the middle of the Marlins' order, leaving a lot to be desired. Hellickson comes into this start having allowed at least four runs in three of his last four starts, though. Ozuna wouldn't be a terrible choice for your daily lineups tonight.

Marlins | Marcell Ozuna a late scratch

Mon, 18 May 2015 13:27:25 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna was a late scratch for the game against the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday, May 18, because he is dealing with a personal issue. OF Ichiro Suzuki will replace Ozuna in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ozuna ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday, and until he returns to the starting lineup. Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap), even at 41, still posses solid contact skills and is a reliable low-end FantasyScore play. However, his upside is limited do to his inability to produce extra-base hits. Just two of his 27 hits have gone for extra bases this season.
