2015

2014

Ortiz won a spot in the Texas bullpen to start the season on the heels of a strong spring training, and ended up making 32 appearances with Texas around a few stints in the minors. He held lefties to a .684 OPS, though Texas already has a set of effective left-handed relievers in Robbie Ross and Neal Cotts. His .475 slugging against righties figures to limit his effectiveness in an expanded role, and it's possible that he'll return to Triple-A before getting a look when injuries create the need for his arm with the big club.
