It’s not often a 23-year-old marches into the Major Leagues and puts up the numbers Marcell Ozuna did in 2014. You can blame the relative obscurity of a 77-win Miami Marlins team, but that doesn’t change the fact that Ozuna is one of the more talented young outfielders in the game and should continue to blossom in an improved lineup in 2015.
After one of the craziest MLB trade deadlines ever, let’s take a look at who made the best moves of the day.
NL hits leader Casey McGehee homered for the 2nd time this season, and the Marlins took the lead for good on a wild pitch by Tim Lincecum in the 7th inning to beat the Giants 3-2 Sunday.
