Braves: MLB extends Marcell Ozuna’s administrative leave

According to Gabe Burns of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Marcell Ozuna’s administrative leave has been extended through the end of the postseason.

There was never a chance that Ozuna was going to return this season. Major League Baseball continues to review the facts of his case and will likely hand down a hefty suspension at some point during the offseason. It will be interesting to see if this administrative leave ends up counting as time served.

As our own Jake Gordon reported earlier this month, Ozuna entered a diversion program that could result in his charges being dismissed in six months.

Regardless, I expect Ozuna to receive some type of punishment from Major League Baseball. If I had to guess, it will be around a 60-80 game suspension. We could see the Braves attempt to move him in a trade this offseason or possibly even release him altogether to avoid the headache; however, nothing will likely happen until a decision is made by MLB.
