Ortega went 1-for-3 with a double, two walks and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

Ortega was an effective tablesetter and continued a strong run at the plate lately. Over his last 10 games, the outfielder is batting .294 with seven walks and five runs scored. The 30-year-old has been locked in all season at the plate with a .283 average, which is quite the jump from the .205 mark he posted last year in 34 games with Atlanta. Ortega still probably profiles as more of a fourth outfielder, though he has looked impressive in a regular role.
