Marcell Ozuna News
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna is off to a rough start to the 2021 season. Through four games, he's gone 2-for-14 with two walks and seven strikeouts. He's yet to record a run or an RBI and he doesn't have any extra-base hits. Ozuna can be a bit of a streaky hitter. Fantasy managers shouldn't be worried at all at this point. Last year, Ozuna was an absolute stud, slashing .338/.431/.636 with 18 home runs and 56 RBI over 60 games. Look for him to get back on track soon.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna has struggled at the plate this spring. Ozuna has just five hits in 37 plate appearances, though three of them have gone for extra bases- and he does have nine strikeouts compared to seven walks, so he's shown a patient eye at the dish. The walks are a good sign, given that he's increased his walk rate in each of the last two seasons. Expecting a repeat of Ozuna's monstrous 2020 performance over a full season is unrealistic- though his career .280 expected batting average, steady four-year increase in barrel rate, and 87th-percentile or better finishes in expected slugging over that same span provide plenty of reasons to trust him in fantasy. He's a good bet to return value at his 43 ADP in a strong Braves lineup in 2021.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna went 1-for-3 with his first home run of the spring on Tuesday in a loss to the Red Sox. Ozuna accounted for all of the Braves' runs in the loss with his three-run blast to left with one out in the third inning. After a slow start that saw Ozuna go 2-for-16 with eight strikeouts, he is now 2-for-3 with a double, a home run, four RBI, a walk and a strikeout over his last two games. Managers shouldn't be too worried about the early struggles, as Ozuna should once again be a top-tier source of power in fantasy, and well worth his ADP of 45.
By signing a four-year, $65 million deal with the Atlanta Braves, outfielder/designated hitterMarcell Ozuna proved just how valuable he is. In the shortened 2020 season, Ozuna statistically had one of the best seasons of his career. He slashed .338/.431/.636 in 60 games, hitting 18 home runs and driving in 56. Those numbers are much higher better than the .241/.328/.472 slash line that he posted in 2019 in 130 games. Ozuna's 267 plate appearances led the league, while his 2.5 WAR ranked seventh. With 38 walks and 77 hits, Ozuna was an on-base machine, and alongside National League MVPFreddie Freeman and young superstar Ronald Acuna, he'll continue to have big-time upside in a stacked Braves lineup. After playing for the Marlins, Cardinals and Braves, Ozuna has found his home. Ozuna is sure to be one of the most sought-after players coming into 2021, and you do not want to miss an opportunity to grab him.
