The Miami Marlins reportedly agreed to trade outfielder Marcell Ozuna to the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday. 

Craig Mish of SiriusXM first reported the deal was in place. Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported top pitching prospect Sandy Alcantara is heading to Miami in the trade. 

Ozuna posted a terrific .312/.376/.548 slash line with 37 home runs in 2017.

The 27-year-old left fielder first started to showcase impressive power potential en route to 54 extra-base hits, including 23 homers, during the 2014 campaign. His numbers dropped off in 2015, however, as he hit just 10 homers in 123 games and got sent to the minors for about five weeks.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported in October 2015 that the front office had become split over the outfielder. Some members wanted to keep him, while former owner Jeffrey Loria was “down on him.” Ozuna noted at the time there wasn’t much he could do about the situation.

“I like it here, but if they don’t want me, I can’t control it. I will learn from this year,” he said.
