Marlins' Rafael Ortega: Removed from 40-man roster
Ortega was cast off the 40-man roster and outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Friday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Ortega received a decent amount of playing time after getting his contract purchased from the minors in August. He wound up slashing just .233/.287/.271 with seven RBI and five stolen bases in 41 games for Miami. It's fairly clear that the Marlins don't see a place for Ortega in their long-term plans.
