Latest Update Marcell Ozuna hits 16th home run Mon Jul, 28, 09:09 AM
Owns tremendous home-run power, thanks largely to great hands, as well as an outstanding throwing arm in right field. A good runner, he can also steal bases.
Flaws: : Doesn't draw enough walks and strikes out a bit too much, mainly because he tends to chase breaking balls out of the strike zone a little too often.
Ozuna continues to enjoy a breakout power season for himself as the 16 homers are the most he's clubbed in a season since his 2012 season in Double-A. We've all known that there was underlying power there; it was just a matter of when it would arrive. He also does have a speed element to his game, though with only three steals on the year, it's obviously not being nurtured at this time. Look for him to put it all together next season, but for now, enjoy the cheap power.Analyst: Howard Bender
Ozuna told (Henderson) Alvarez and (Donovan) Solano that he was going to hit a home run. And sure enough, he did. Take that Babe Ruth.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Ozuna is now riding a nine-game hitting streak, with Thursday night's performance being the best in that span. Now slashing .271/.317/.455 with 14 home runs and 47 RBI, Ozuna continues to be a solid complimentary outfielder for all but the shallowest of league formats, but could actually get better over time if he found a way to lower his 30.0 percent strikeout rate and took a few more walks (22 BB). Either way there is no reason this guy should be sitting on the waiver wire as long as he continues to flash the lumber at a high rate. Analyst: Matthew Beck
After 38 consecutive starts, Ozuna will get a much-needed day of rest with Christian Yelich coming off the DL. Yelich will replace Ozuna in center on Sunday while Reed Johnson stays over in left field.Analyst: Howard Bender
