Ozuna says he'll stay in St. Louis if Cardinals 'step up,' per report

By NewsRadio 1120 KMOX

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The St. Louis Cardinals are on the top of Marcell Ozuna's list of destinations in 2020 and beyond, according to a report from a Dominican TV station. 

But if Ozuna returns, he would fill the role of cleanup hitter that some believe the 2020 Cardinals roster is still missing. 

Marcell Ozuna: “St. Louis is on the hunt. We will see which one of the two will be (Cardinals/Rangers). I’ve been in St. Louis and I like the city. My first option will be St. Louis. If they step up I will stay, if not I will find a new home."(Via @NeftaliRuiz / @CDN37) pic.twitter.com/1WHPwPio3X

The Reds were the rumored leaders to sign the 29-year-old outfielder this winter, but may no longer be interested since signing Japanese outfielder Shogo Akiyama to a three-year deal.
