Marcell Ozuna News
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna (abdomen) is batting third and playing left field against Marlins lefty Trevor Rogers on Friday night. Ozuna missed Thursday's game against the Phillies with lower abdominal tightness, but he is ready to go Friday. He hasn't lived up to expectations so far this season, with just a .669 OPS. That being said, he has been hot at the dish recently, posting a .300 AVG with four home runs over a 12-game hit streak. Get him back in your lineups in daily leagues.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna (abdomen) was scratched from the lineup on Thursday against the Philadelphia Phillies with lower abdominal tightness. He will be available off the bench. Fantasy managers should consider Ozuna day-to-day for now, with a good chance of him returning to the lineup on Friday. The 31-year-old slugger is hitting .231/.270/.399 on the season with eight home runs, 20 RBI, 17 runs scored and two stolen bases in 185 plate appearances over 44 games played. In Ozuna's absence on Thursday, Orlando Arcia will start in left field and bat eighth in the batting order against Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola. Arcia has very little fantasy upside, but he does have 14 hits in 41 at-bats (.341 average) in 14 games this season.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna is off to a strong start to the 2022 season. Over 13 games, he's slashing .288/.296/.577 with four home runs, three doubles, eight home runs and six runs. The 31-year-old struggled to the tune of a .213/.288/.356 slash line during the 48 games he played last year, so it's encouraging to see him looking more like his pre-2021 self early on this year. He's making a ton of hard contact at the plate right now with a 15.2% barrel rate and a 58.7% hard-hit rate.
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.
