Marcell Ozuna News
After reviewing bodycam footage of a domestic violence incident involving Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna, local prosecutors have decided to drop the felony aggravated assault, strangulation charge against Ozuna, according to Amy Dash of Fox Sports Radio. Despite the dropped felony charge, Ozuna is still facing two misdemeanor charges of battery, family violence and simple assault, family violence which could carry a potential jail sentence of up to a year. While it seems that Ozuna may plead out and avoid jail time, there's still no guarantee that he will take the field again this year as MLB has not concluded their investigation yet. Managers can continue to stash him on their bench if they want, but there's a better than 50-50 chance he will not play again in 2021.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna was released from jail after he posted $20,000 bond on Monday on charges of aggravated assault by strangulation and battery against his wife. Ozuna was jailed on Saturday after police officers witnessed him attacking his wife while responding to a 911 call. Already on the injured list and expected to be out for more than a month with two dislocated fingers on his left hand, Ozuna could face a long suspension from Major League Baseball. The league plans to review the matter under the domestic-violence policy. The 30-year-old was hitting just .213/.288/.356 with seven home runs and 26 RBI in 48 games (208 plate appearances) before his injury. He hit .338 and led the National League with 18 home runs and 56 RBI in the shortened 2020 season.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna was arrested on Saturday and charged with "aggravated assault strangulation and misdemeanor battery - family violence," according to Jeff Passan of ESPN. Ozuna had been placed on the injured list on Friday after fracturing two fingers on his left hand, but now it appears he could be in for a lengthy suspension on top of that. Managers can wait and see how long that suspension will be for, but given the severity of the charges, it seems quite likely Ozuna will be done for the season.
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.
