MLB: Should the Braves give Marcell Ozuna another chance?

Marcel Ozuna He is one of those players who has undeniable talent but whose careers in the Major League Baseball (MLB) have been affected by situations off the pitch and character. The native of the Dominican Republic has not been able to remain constant in the number of games or in his numbers. This opens the way to questioning whether the Atlanta Braves should give him another chance..

The Atlanta Braves have not given up on Marcell Ozuna despite the fact that injuries and issues off the pitch have led him to see a decrease in the number of games he plays in the Major Leagues.

However, in the 2022 Season he showed that when he is healthy and without a scandal he can be efficient. For example, coming back from the arrest he suffered for drunk driving, he posted an OPS of .920.

Last season’s total numbers for the Dominican were 124 games played in which he posted a .226 batting percentage, 23 home runs and 56 RBIs, having spent most of that time as a designated hitter.

Marcell Ozuna would have the opportunity in 2023 to show the Atlanta Braves that he can deliver on the field of play. It is worth mentioning that throughout his career he has been characterized by ‘destroying’ the balls with his bat. Will it achieve stability next year?

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, beginning a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is mainly managed by men. Bachelor of Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball in the Mexican Baseball League (LMB). ), Mexican Pacific League (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Serie del Rey. I have done work for social networks such as coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was at a Leones de Yucatán game, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team I love and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, at the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
