Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak plans to visit Marcell Ozuna to check on his rehab from shoulder surgery. (St. Louis Post Dispatch)
Ozuna opted to return home to the Dominican Republic to rehab his surgery rather than stay at the Cardinals' training facility in Florida. Mozeliak will be in the DR anyways and wants to see how Ozuna is doing. Ozuna has assured Mozeliak he will be ready for the season. The 28-year-old had a somewhat disappointing year in 2018 but he was also playing hurt. There's reason to think he can bounce back this year if he's fully healthy.
