2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2012

After turning heads in spring training last year, Ortega did little to build on those impressions in his first season with Triple-A Toledo, finishing 1-3 with a 6.31 ERA and 1.760 WHIP in 50 innings. The main culprit for his struggles was his lack of command Ortega walked 4.86 BB/9IP last season. Despite the bumpy showing with the Mud Hens, Ortega remains one of the better bullpen prospects for the Tigers thanks to an electric fastball that tops out at 98 mph but usually hovers between 93-95 mph. He also features an above-average slider and a subpar change-up. While many relievers can get by with just two solid pitches, its tough for any bullpen hurler to have much success at the major league level with the lack of command Ortega has displayed throughout his minor league career. The 23-year-old will need to spend more time in the higher levels of the minors improving his control before the Tigers give him a look.
