In going 3-for-5 in Tuesday's win against the Astros, Jake Marisnick raised his Grapefruit League batting average to .375. Meanwhile, Marcell Ozuna and his .135 spring average watched from the bench.

With Opening Day less than two weeks away, it would seem Ozuna is in the process of playing himself out of the starting center field job. Manager Mike Redmond cautioned against such assumptions.

"I still expect him to be out there Opening Day," said Redmond, before Marisnick's latest big game. "We want to see him go out there and continue to play. I like the way he's played and we like what he did last year. You don't always judge on spring training results. We're going to make sure we make a decision that's best for our team going forward and winning ballgames.

"Everybody gets caught up in spring training results sometimes. There are a lot of factors that go into the Opening Day roster and the guys we choose. It's not just about spring training results, although sometimes those do play a bigger role for some guys more than others."

Promoted last season when Giancarlo Stanton went on the disabled list, Ozuna was sensational over his first 125 at-bats, slashing .336/.381/.488. Over his next 150 at-bats before a thumb injury ended his season, Ozuna stroked just 31 hits (.207) with a .544 OPS. He also drew just five walks and struck out 30 times.
