Marcell Ozuna Miami Marlins Career

Ozuna made his major league debut on April 30, 2013, and recorded his first career hit, a single against Jeremy Hefner of the New York Mets.

In his fifth game, he hit his first career home run (along with his first RBI and run scored) off Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels.

In Stanton’s absence, Ozuna was named the starting right fielder. Ozuna took over as the starting center fielder when Stanton returned.

Ozuna was optioned back to Jacksonville on July 22. Ozuna was placed on the 15-day disabled list instead of joining Jacksonville due to a ligament tear and avulsion fracture in his left thumb, which he sustained while diving for a ball.

He had season-ending thumb surgery on July 26, 2013.

Ozuna appeared in 153 games for the Marlins in 2014, batting.269 with 23 home runs and 85 RBIs.
He hit home runs in four consecutive games on September 11, 2014, tying a team record.

Ozuna was demoted to AAA on July 5, 2015, after going hitless in nine of ten games and dropping his average to.249 for the season.

He returned to the Marlins to finish the 2015 season, batting.278 with six home runs and 18 RBIs after appearing in 33 games and hitting .333 with five home runs and 11 RBIs.

The Marlins got multiple offers for him over the offseason, but he was re-signed and slotted into the number-two spot in the lineup for the 2016 season.

Ozuna was selected the National League Player of the Week for the week of April 10–16, 2017, after hitting .435 with four home runs, 12 RBIs, and a 1.481 OPS.

Olazabal Ozuna was selected as an All-Star starter for the National League in 2017.

Eight NL All-Stars hit 35 home runs or more, but Ozuna was one of just four to walk at least nine percent of the time while striking out at a rate of less than 22 percent.

He hit a career-high in batting, among other things. More than 300 hits, 37 of them home runs, and more than 120 runs batted in.

After hitting .500 (10–20) with three home runs, seven RBIs, and six runs scored during the week of September 18–24, he and teammate Giancarlo Stanton were voted NL Player of the Week.
