Ozuna is out of the lineup Friday against the Mets, Joe Frisaro of reports.

Ozuna is hitless with six strikeouts in his last three games, so manager Mike Redmond will sit him down give Ichiro Suzuki a start in center field against right-hander Bartolo Colon. It marks Ozuna's second time out of the lineup in six days, as he also sat Sunday after a late arrival to the ballpark, but he should have plenty of opportunities to get back on track.

Ozuna was late to the game and will not start Sunday, Joe Frisaro of reports.

Ozuna will probably see some late game action, since the Marlins likely wouldn't trust his replcement, Ichiro Suzuki, to play an adequate center field in a close game. This really isn't anything significant long-term, even discipline wise, because the reason Ozuna was late was because Miami took unexpected batting practice that he wasn't aware of.

Ozuna (ankle) has recovered from the injury that prematurely ended his season in September, the Marlins' official site reports.

The injury was diagnosed as a sprain at the time, and there is no indication that the ailment limited Ozuna during the offseason. Depending on how manager Mike Redmond opts to arrange the middle third of the Marlins' batting order, Ozuna could hit anywhere between fourth and sixth this season.

Ozuna was seen with a walking boot on his right foot following Sunday's game,'s Joe Frisaro reports.

Ozuna injured his right ankle when coming down on second base, and although X-rays during the game came back negative, the outfielder expects to miss "a few weeks." If his self-established timetable holds true, he'll miss the remainder of the regular season, leaving fantasy owners rushing to pick up a replacement option for the season's final week. The young Enrique Hernandez is one candidate to see additional reps in the outfield while Ozuna is on the shelf.

Ozuna left Sunday's game with an apparent ankle injury, Juan C. Rodriguez of the Miami Sun Sentinel reports.

Ozuna came down awkwardly on his leg after failing to slide into second base, and had to be helped off the field while appearing to be in noticeable pain. His status will likely be updated by the Marlins following the game, but if he has to miss extended time, look for Enrique Hernandez and Jeff Baker to see additional outfield reps during the final week of the season.

Ozuna went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Nationals.

Ozuna has taken over the Marlins' cleanup spot since Giancarlo Stanton went down for the year with injury. He's slumped lately, batting just .244 (10-for-41) with two home runs in his past ten games, but has put together a strong sophomore season with a .263/.316/.454 over 151 games. He will combine with Stanton and fellow second-year breakout Christian Yelich to provide the Marlins with one of the top young set of outfielders in the game in 2015.
