RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
2007
2006
2005
2004
2003
  1. Russ Ortiz 2007 Preseason Outlook
    Even Leo Mazzone, who helped Ortiz somehow win 36 games in two seasons in Atlanta from 2003-04, couldn’t help the pitcher who was cut by Arizona despite having $22 million left on his contract. Even if the Giants give him a shot at making their rotation in 2007, you should stay far far away.
  2. Russ Ortiz 2006 Preseason Outlook
    Ortiz was as excruciatingly awful as expected given his poor control. And the Diamondbacks still have to pay him almost $25 million for three more years. Yes, Ortiz was hurt for two months (ribs), but he was still on his way to the worst walk, homer and strikeout rates of his career. Okay, let's be nice. If Ortiz unexpectedly improves in 2006, he should still be available on waiver wires across the nation. Otherwise, pass.
  3. Russ Ortiz 2005 Preseason Outlook
    Ortiz won 15 games despite continuing to walk batters at a high rate and a poor second half of 54/53 K/BB ratio, 4.85 ERA and 17 HR in 89 IP. He's now second only to Javy Vazquez at the top of the rotation for Arizona, but the walks might finally catch up with him in that ballpark.
  4. Russ Ortiz 2004 Preseason Outlook
    Ortiz has been one of the most consistent starters in the NL the last three seasons despite a high walk-rate. Those walks don’t have us too excited about his upside, but you can likely count on at least 13 wins and an ERA under 4.00.
  5. Russ Ortiz 2003 Preseason Outlook
    Over the last two seasons, Ortiz has delivered 31 wins, a 3.49 ERA, a 1.3 WHIP and 6.4 K's per nine innings. He'll deliver innings wherever he pitches (219 and 214 innings, respectively, in the last two years). Ortiz will turn 29 during the 2003 season. If he gets to pitch in a pitcher's park like San Francisco again, it's safe to project 14 wins and a 3.50 ERA. That would probably get worse, however, if Ortiz winds up being dealt to a more hitter-friendly ballpark.
