    • Marlins' Rafael Ortega: Heads to Miami
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ortega signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Friday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports. Ortega has only appeared in 66 big-league games throughout the course of his eight-year professional career, all coming in 2016 with the Angels. This past season, he spent the entire season with Triple-A El Paso in the Padres' system, slashing .317/.383/.468 with six home runs, 53 RBI and 26 stolen bases. He will likely begin the 2018 campaign back in Triple-A, but could find himself playing at the major-league level sometime during the summer.

    • Ortega agreed to join the Padres on a minor league contract Tuesday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. After two seasons of success against Triple-A pitching, the 25-year-old outfielder got his first taste of the majors last season with the Angels. However, things didn't quite go as planned, as he batted just .232 despite striking out just 11.4 percent of the time. Seeing as the Padres have a few top outfield prospects vying for major league spots this spring, Ortega seems to be destined for Triple-A for the bulk of 2017.

    • Rafael Ortega: Elects free agency
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ortega declined his outright assignment to Triple-A, electing free agency. Ortega lost his spot on the roster last week when the team signed Jesse Chavez. He will test the open market rather than just accept an org-depth role, but after a .232/.283/.292 showing in 2016, Ortega will almost certainly have to settle for a minor league deal.

    • Angels' Rafael Ortega: Designated for assignment
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ortega was designated for assignment by the Angels on Friday. With Jesse Chavez coming aboard on a one-year deal, the Angels needed to clear a spot and Ortega was the roster casualty. Ortega hit just .232/.283/.292 in 201 plate appearances in 2016 while playing primarily in left field. He figures to play out 2017 as organizational depth in the minors.

    • Angels' Rafael Ortega: Recalled to majors Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ortega was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday. Ortega has been heating up in the minors lately, where he's now working on a .317/.348/.453 slash line with 14 steals on the season. Things haven't gone as well in limited time in the majors in 2016, but he'll now get another opportunity at the top level. He figures to serve mainly as outfield depth and could stick around for the remainder of the season, as rosters are set to expand Thursday.
