Ozuna went 1-for-4 batting out of the two-hole in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

New Manger Dan Jennings decided to shuffle up the lineup a bit in the hopes of jump-starting the team's scuffling offense, moving Ozuna up to second and dropping Martin Prado to the cleanup spot. Though the Marlins continued to struggle and dropped their sixth straight game Wednesday, both Ozuna and Prado got hits, and will remain in their respective positions for Thursday's matinee.

Ozuna went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored batting out of the cleanup spot in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

After opening the season in the sixth spot in the Marlins lineup, injuries and performance have helped Ozuna ascend into a prime lineup position, batting directly behind Giancarlo Stanton. Ozuna's power has yet to flash in 2015 and he's averaging over a strikeout per game, but the 24-year-old is also showing ability to get on base, posting a .351 on-base percentage over his first 19 games. He's batting a cool .343 (12-for-35) over his past 10 contest and after slugging 23 home runs and 26 doubles in 2014, it is only just a matter of time before the extra-base hits begin to pile up.
