Ozuna was traded to the Cardinals on Wednesday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After failing to secure Giancarlo Stanton, the Cardinals will snag a different outfielder from Miami, as Ozuna is heading to St. Louis following five seasons in the big-leagues with the Marlins. During his breakout 2017 campaign, Ozuna slashed .312/.376/.548 with 37 home runs and 124 RBI, with all stats checking in as career highs. At this point in time, the return for Ozuna hasn't been announced, but all players involved will need to pass their physicals in order for the deal to go through. Looking ahead, Ozuna is the impact bat that the Cardinals were searching for at the winter meetings, and he will be a mainstay at the number three or four spot in the order for St. Louis during this upcoming season. As for defensive positioning, Ozuna will probably remain in left field while Tommy Pham transitions to right.

Ozuna is out of Saturday's lineup against the Braves, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite being scorching hot at the plate (.458/.527/.708 with three home runs over his last 48 at-bats), Ozuna will take a seat in the penultimate game of the year. Derek Dietrich will start in left field and hit sixth.

Ozuna went 2-for-4 with a walk, two home runs, three runs scored and three RBI in Friday's 13-11 loss to the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old has already established new career highs in just about every major hitting category but he isn't rested on his laurels in September, slashing .308/.333/.538 through 19 games with five homers and 15 RBI. With 36 home runs on the year and eight games left on the Marlins' schedule, Ozuna still has an outside shot at his first 40-HR campaign.

Ozuna isn't in the lineup Sunday against the Braves, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After starting 22 consecutive games, Ozuna will have a well-earned day off. In that span he slashed .318/.394/.534 and hit five home runs. Tyler Moore will hit fourth and start in left field while Ozuna heads to the bench. The Marlins have Monday off, so Ozuna should return to the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies.

Ozuna went 3-for-4 and scored the Marlins' only run in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

It's been feast or famine for Ozuna lately, as he has four multi-hit performances and six oh-fers in his last 10 games. A 4:14 BB:K is the main culprit, and while his .275/.341/.375 slash line over that stretch doesn't make him a big liability in season-long formats, he's become a very risky DFS play due to that game-to-game volatility.

Ozuna went 3-for-3 with a walk, a double and an RBI in Monday's loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

While Max Scherzer was able to keep Giancarlo Stanton in check Monday night, he had no such luck with Ozuna. The 26-year-old is now slashing an electric .333/.430/.600 through 25 games in August with seven homers and 22 RBI.

EDGE Analysis

Ozuna blasted his 31st homer of the season to tie the game at one in the fourth inning of a contest the Marlins would win in extra innings. He's homered in four of his last six games, and he's been a fantasy superstar this year with a .311/.376/.560 slash line.
