Marlins' Rafael Ortega: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Marlins' Rafael Ortega: On bench vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortega is not in the lineup Thursday against the Reds, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Ortega will hit the bench for Thursday's series opener as manager Don Mattingly stacks right-handed hitters against southpaw Cody Reed. Isaac Galloway gets the start in right field in his absence, hitting seventh.

Marlins' Rafael Ortega: On bench again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortega is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Ortega, who is hitting just .175/.214/.200 through 14 games in September, will take a seat for the fifth time in the last six games as Magneuris Sierra picks up another start in right field in his place. Given his recent struggles, it wouldn't be surprising if Ortega continued to cede starts to the younger Sierra over the final two weeks of the season.

Marlins' Rafael Ortega: Out of lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortega is on the bench Monday against the Nationals, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Ortega started 19 straight games after a mid-August call-up, but his playing time has dwindled since then. His .244/.297/.286 season line certainly suggests that he deserves no more than a small role. He'll hit the bench for the fourth time in five games, with Magneuris Sierra starting in right field.

Marlins' Rafael Ortega: Sits out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortega is not in the lineup Sunday against the Phillies, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

Ortega has been ice cold in the month of September, producing just a .436 OPS in 12 games he's played. Peter O'Brien will take his place in right field for the afternoon.
