• Fox Sports Florida on Friday announced former Marlins pitcher Carl Pavano will be joining its broadcast coverage team. Pavano, a 14-year big league veteran and a member of the Marlins' 2003 World Series title team, will be an analyst for select Marlins Live pregame and postgame shows. His TV debut will be Tuesday night when the Nationals are at Marlins Park.

• Heading into Friday night, Marcell Ozuna had 330 MLB plate appearances. None of them came in the No. 2 spot in the lineup, but that changed when Redmond put the outfielder behind leadoff hitter Christian Yelich.

Ozuna has now found himself batting in every space of the order, except for leadoff.

"Ozuna has been swinging the bats well, and he's got good numbers here," Redmond said. "Maybe he will get a few more fastballs. I'm not afraid to mix and match."
