Ozuna’s two-year stint in St. Louis is likely to end. The two-time All-Star saw a 39-point dip in his batting average this season, but improved his OBP and SLG by a healthy margin. Ozuna is capable of hitting a lot of homers — career-high of 37 — excelling in the field (Gold Glove in ’17) and has improved on the bases enough to be considered a threat to steal. While it is not entirely impossible for Ozuna and the Cardinals to stick together, a team like the Reds is perhaps more likely to pay Ozuna the amount he is looking for.
Prediction: Cincinnati Reds
UPDATE: Marcell Ozuna signs 1-year, $18 million contract with the Atlanta Braves
