Marcell Ozuna News
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna is back in left field and is hitting eighth on Sunday against right-hander Jose Urquidy and the Houston Astros. Ozuna was recently arrested for driving under the influence on Friday morning and was held out of the team's lineup the last two games, but he'll return for the series finale against Houston. The 31-year-old Dominican is hitting just .214 in 415 at-bats for Atlanta this year with a .263 on-base percentage, but he does have 20 home runs, 46 RBI, 50 runs scored and two stolen bases in 107 games played. DFS managers should consider Ozuna an all-or-nothing commodity at the bottom of Atlanta's lineup.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna was arrested early Friday morning for driving under the influence. The police arrested Ozuna for DUI and failure to maintain lane before booking him into the Gwinnett County Jail. The 31-year-old was also arrested last year for domestic violence and served a suspension. When active on the field, Ozuna has struggled with the bat for a majority of this season. He's slashing .214/.263/.393 with 20 home runs and 46 RBI in 106 games. There's not much reason to roster Ozuna outside of his power, but he's certainly a risky option now. Fantasy managers should get more details on this situation soon.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Washington Nationals. Ronald Acuna Jr. will be slotting in at designated hitter for the contest. This will be Ozuna's second day off over the last five games. The team has a full outfield now with Ozuna, Acuna, Eddie Rosario, Michael Harris II and Adam Duvall. Ozuna is the worst fielder of the bunch and he's been relegated to designated hitter duties in each of his last 12 starts. He hasn't been doing much at the plate lately to help his case for playing time as he's slashed just .196/.262/.411 in July.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna suffered two dislocated fingers on his left hand in May and was later suspended after being involved in a domestic violence dispute. He is eligible to return this season following his suspension for domestic violence charges. MLB retroactively suspended Ozuna in mid-September, which covered the season's final month. Ozuna has served his suspension and will be with Atlanta once the lockout ends. If he's cleared, pending misdemeanor charges, Braves manager Brian Snitker said he would have no issues playing the outfielder. The 31-year-old slashed .213/.288/.356 with seven home runs, 26 RBI, 21 runs scored over 48 games before his suspension. Ozuna signed a four-year, $64 million contract with the Braves during the 2021 offseason. The Braves slugger hit .316 with four home runs and 13 RBI across 21 games in the Dominican Winter League. ATC projects Ozuna to slash .265/.342/.479 with 25 long balls over 504 plate appearances. According to Rotoballer's Expected Draft Values, assuming he returns as the team's starting left fielder, Ozuna is roughly fair value at the current 182 ADP. His role with the Braves remains unclear, but the expectation is that Ozuna will be with the team in 2022.
