RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

There was no outlook written for Rafael Ortega.

2013

Ortega showed some improvement at High-A Modesto in his age-21 season, increasing his walk rate (8.3 percent) while cutting his strikeout rate (16.7 percent) without sacrificing much of his marginal power. He even earned a brief cup of coffee in the last two games of the season with the Rockies devoid of healthy outfielders. Though speedy, Ortega's 66.7 percent success rate on the basepaths does not portend well for his major league success, but it should not immediately prove problematic as he advances to the upper minors. Fortunately for Ortega, he has youth and solid contact skills on his side, which should grant him the opportunity to iron out the deficiencies in his game.

2012

Ortega adapted well to full season ball with Low-A Asheville after turning 20 in May. Although his instincts on the basepaths still need refinement, 32 stolen bases along with eight triples serve as an indication of his plus-speed. While his walk rate (5.4 percent) was low, he makes contact regularly (82.7 percent) and should be able to get on base enough to utilize his speed. Ortega is listed at 5-foot-11, 160 pounds, so he may not add a ton of pop as he continues to develop into that frame. Look for him to advance to the hitter-friendly California League, where improved power numbers would hardly surprise and likely vault him up prospect lists.

2011

At 19 years old, Ortega spent 2010 tearing up the Pioneer League in his first North American baseball action. The Venezuelan hit .358/.416/.510 for Casper with 23 steals in 288 at-bats. While somewhat short on power, he has plus speed and a quick bat and profiles as someone who can play center field. It's not crazy to think that in a few years he could be the top prospect in the Rockies system. For now, consider him someone to keep tabs on as he progresses through his minor league development.
