QUESTION: How has Marcell Ozuna gone from Gold Glove winner to one of the worst left fielders in the game?
BenFred: He's not one of the worst left fielders in the league. Two, three bad plays doesn't capture his whole season. He was +11 last season in defensive runs saved. That ranked second at the position. He's +1 so far this season. That's middle-of-the-pack.
QUESTON: Is Ozuna, offensively, starting to ascend to be the pillar that the Cardinals thought they traded for this offseason?
BenFred: He's slashing .349/.394/.640 this month with seven big-bear blasts. That .640 slug in June matches some guy named Mike Trout. Yes, this is thump the Cardinals wanted to see.
