Free agent Marcell Ozuna's "has begun to take shape in recent days," according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network.
Morosi also noted that the coveted free agent is getting interest from both AL and NL clubs despite the uncertainty over the universal DH. Ozuna has been linked to the Braves, Mets, and Blue Jays in recent days and Morosi added that some clubs would be comfortable with him being their everyday left fielder. The stove is heating up.
Jon Morosi of MLB.com reports the Giants have expressed interest in free agent OF Marcell Ozuna.
Morosi notes that the Giants want to wait and see if the universal DH will remain in effect for the 2021 season, though. We also know that Ozuna is receiving interest from the Braves, Mets, and Blue Jays.
The New York Post reports that the Mets are showing interest in free agent outfielder Marcell Ozuna.
MLB Network's Jon Heyman reported that at least 10 teams are showing interest in Ozuna this offseason, and it's understandable as to why. The slugger nearly won the Triple Crown in the National League. He wound up leading the senior circuit in both homers (18) and RBI (56). Ozuna will receive even more interest if we get official word that the universal DH will remain in place for 2021. Of course, he would be a big boost to the Mets' offense as a whole.
Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that 10 teams, including the Braves, are showing interest in free agent outfielder Marcell Ozuna.
Ozuna's market would only increase if we receive official word of the universal DH for 2021. The 30-year-old Ozuna nearly won the Triple Crown in the abbreviated 2020 campaign and wound up leading the National League in homers (18) and RBI (56).
Braves president Alex Anthopoulos says the team "would love to" re-sign OF Marcell Ozuna.
No surprise here. “Marcell was amazing for us. He was awesome. I’d love to have him back," Anthopoulos said. Ozuna settled for a one-year, $18 million contract following a couple of down seasons with the Cardinals. It proved to be a tremendous value for the Braves as Ozuna wound up leading the National League in homers (18) and RBI (56) while finishing third in batting average (.338). The Braves have had some recent success with one-year deals, both with Ozuna this year and with Josh Donaldson in 2019. It remains to be seen if they would pay what it would take to bring him back on a multi-year deal. The Red Sox have been suggested as another team who might have interest in Ozuna's services.
