Marcell Ozuna Joins Boras Corporation

Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna is now being represented by the Boras Corporation, MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports.  According to MLBTR’s Agency Database, Ozuna had previously been represented by the Kinzer Management Group.

As Ozuna isn’t eligible for arbitration until after the 2016 season, it’s probably no surprise that Frisaro reports that Miami hasn’t discussed a contract extension with the 23-year-old outfielder.  The cost-conscious Marlins may not want to make a notable financial commitment to Ozuna unless they can get some kind of a bargain over his arb years, and Scott Boras’ track record would seem to make such a team-friendly deal unlikely.

Ozuna’s first full season in the majors has been a successful one, as the 23-year-old has posted a .261/.316/.440 slash line, a 110 wRC+, 18 homers and 56 runs scored in 448 PA.  He’s also been solid in center field, exhibiting a strong throwing arm and saving eight runs according to the Defensive Runs Saved metric.

I remember reading Scott Boras had Jeffery Loria’s ear due to him being the agent of Jose Fernandez. The Marlins should be very afraid to go to arbitration with Scott Boras, I can see this as a powerplay move to get Loria to take on some of his clients in the future specifically guys who would probably be getting minor league deals next year in Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales.

It’s going to be interesting to see how much and where Drew and Morales get/go next year. I can’t see both clients retaining Boras if they knew they’d be making league minimum after he cost them millions of dollars.

I had such high hopes for Ozuna! I mean he was excellent when he replaced Stanton, what last year when he was hurt. He was a lot of fun to watch.
Now, he does this? Tsk, Tsk! =P

Tough break, Marlins fans. That’s worse than a season-ending injury. Well, at least he’ll be a Marlin for five more years.

On the plus side, you can now safely extend him a qualifying offer.

I enjoy seeing the Marlins and Boras together. Makes me believe in karma.
