Craig Mish of SirusXM reports that Cardinals outfielder Marcell Ozuna will undergo a clean-up procedure on his right shoulder. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles. Ozuna is expected to be ready by spring training.

Ozuna, who turns 28 years old in two weeks, was bothered by shoulder issues throughout the 2018 season. He finished batting .280/.325/.433 with 23 home runs and 88 RBI in 628 plate appearances.

The Cardinals acquired Ozuna from the Marlins last December. He has one more year of arbitration eligibility remaining after earning $9 million this past season.
