Marcell Ozuna's second full season was a considerable disappointment, thanks to an embarrassing mid-summer demotion to Triple-A and non-stop rumors that the Marlins would badly like to find him a new home this winter. It's not exactly what anyone expected a year ago, when Ozuna's impressive first full season inspired questions about whether Ozuna, Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich made up baseball's best young outfield trio.
Now, he's apparently on the trading block, and interested teams attempting to put together reasonable offers have to figure out exactly what Ozuna really is. Is he the player who at age 23 in 2014 had a nearly identical slugging percentage to Josh Donaldson while playing a capable center field, making him a borderline star? Or is he the player who was unable to back it up in such a spectacular way that he lost his job, even though the team was already short-handed in the outfield without the injured Stanton?
