Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday.

Ortiz made only one start in the majors in 2019, allowing four earned runs over 3.1 innings. He wasn't much more effective with Triple-A Norfolk, amassing a 6.38 ERA with a 47:31 K:BB over 66.1 innings pitched, and he now finds himself off the 40-man roster heading into 2020.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Shuttled back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz (0-1) took the loss after surrendering four runs on four hits and five walks while striking out three over 3.1 innings Friday against the Red Sox. He was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk following the game, Joe Trezza of reports.

Ortiz gave up two runs in the second inning and two more in the fourth prior to exiting with a 4-1 deficit. He struggled to consistently find the strike zone in this one, firing just 44 of 80 pitches for strikes. He'll aim to find better success in the minor leagues in his next outing.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Joins Orioles to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to start Friday against the Red Sox, Joe Trezza of reports.

The 23-year-old will start Friday in place of Andrew Cashner, who was scratched due to a finger issue. Ortiz has struggled with a 7.01 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 41:23 K:BB over 52.2 innings with Norfolk this season, but he nonetheless makes his way to the majors. Friday was already his scheduled day to pitch.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Rich Dubroff of reports.

Ortiz was called up from Triple-A earlier in the day, and although he wasn't called on to pitch in the series finale, he'll go right back down Norfolk, where he's accrued a 5.87 ERA with an unimpressive 8:11 K:BB over 15.1 frames.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Headed to Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.

Ortiz worked as a starter in Triple-A Norfolk, posting a 5.87 ERA and 2.02 WHIP across 15.1 innings of work. He struggled especially with his command, surrendering 11 free passes. He appears destined to begin his time in Baltimore as a reliever, though he could also work as a spot starter if the need arises.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz was sent to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Ortiz appeared to have a shot to crack the starting rotation for the 2019 campaign, but he's been sent to Triple-A relatively early in camp. He appeared in two games for Baltimore a season ago and allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks over 2.1 innings. Ortiz figures to be one of the first pitchers called upon if the Orioles' rotation struggles through any injuries.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Sheds weight ahead of job battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz reported to camp Tuesday at 247 pounds, a drop of 22 pounds from what he tipped the scales at last spring, Joe Trezza of reports.

Ortiz may have been motivated to get his conditioning in order after he battled hamstring injuries on multiple occasions in 2018, including one in mid-September that ended his season prematurely. The 23-year-old enters spring training at full health and should be one of the top candidates to claim a back-end rotation spot in a wide-open competition. The right-hander has an encouraging long-term outlook thanks to a three-pitch repertoire highlighted by a mid-90s fastball, but he struggled to regularly generate swings and misses with the offering between stops at Double-A, Triple-A and the majors last season.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz (hamstring) will not pitch again this season, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Ortiz suffered a hamstring injury in the second inning of his first career start Friday and will be shut down for the year. There hasn't been anything to suggest this is a particularly serious injury, so he should be ready to go by the start of spring training.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Unlikely to be available soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Monday or Tuesday and is unlikely to be available soon, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Ortiz lasted just five outs into his first career start Friday against the White Sox before exiting with a left hamstring injury. The severity of the issue is not yet clear, but the Orioles likely aren't banking on him pitching again in 2018 with just two weeks left in the season.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Suffers tweaked hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz left Friday's game against the White Sox after injuring his left hamstring, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

The severity of the injury isn't known just yet, but Ortiz will likely undergo an MRI on Saturday to determine the extent of the damage. Expect more news after further evaluation.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Exits game with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz appeared to suffer a leg injury while covering first base in the second inning of Friday's game against the White Sox, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports. He gave up three runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk over 1.2 innings prior to leaving the contest.

Ortiz managed to walk off the field under his own power with the team trainer, but he was walking with an obvious limp. The extent and nature of the injury should come to light once he's been examined further.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Scheduled for first career start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz will make his first career start Friday against the White Sox, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Ortiz's first career MLB appearance went poorly Friday against the Rays, as he allowed three runs on three hits and a pair of walks while getting just two outs. In six starts for Triple-A Norfolk, he recorded a solid 3.69 ERA, though he struck out just 15.6 percent of the batters he faced.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Joins Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz had his contract selected from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.

Ortiz, the headliner in the Jonathan Schoop trade, needed to be added to the Orioles' 40-man roster in the offseason regardless for Rule 5 protection. The 22-year-old posted a combined 3.70 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across 99.2 innings with Double-A Biloxi and Triple-A Norfolk. He figures to work out of the bullpen down the stretch.

Orioles' Luis Ortiz: Headlines Schoop deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz was traded from the Brewers to the Orioles on Tuesday along with Jonathan Villar and Jean Carmona in exchange for Jonathan Schoop, Mark Feinsand of reports.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but most would consider Ortiz the headliner in this package for Baltimore. He is a big, 6-foot-3, 230-pound righty whose minor-league production has never quite matched his scouting report. At his best, Ortiz shows a heavy fastball that leads to plenty of groundballs, a plus breaking ball and good command in the zone, while mixing in an average changeup. If he were to max out, he could make it as a mid-rotation starter, but it is probably more likely at this point that he ends up as more of a back-end starter. Look for him to be assigned to Double-A Bowie.

Brewers' Luis Ortiz: Returns from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz (hamstring) has been activated from the disabled list and will start Thursday night with Double-A Biloxi, team broadcaster Garrett Greene reports.

Ortiz missed over a month with his hamstring injury, but he is ready to get back on the bump. Ortiz posted a 2.11 ERA and 22:7 K:BB in 21.1 innings over four outings prior to his injury.

Brewers' Luis Ortiz: Set to miss at least two starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz (hamstring) is expected to miss at least two turns through the Double-A Biloxi rotation, Adam McCalvy of reports.

It was initially expected that Ortiz, who was placed on the disabled list Saturday, would miss just one start due to the tight hamstring, but it sounds like he'll miss more than the 7-day minimum with the injury. Since the hamstring issue isn't viewed as a major concern, the organization is likely just exercising caution by holding Ortiz out for two starts after he dealt with the same injury in 2017. Ortiz has been dominant through his first four outings with Biloxi this season, posting a 2.53 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 21.1 innings.

Brewers' Luis Ortiz: Out with hamstring tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz was placed on the disabled list with hamstring tightness, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Ortiz has a 2.11 ERA in 21.1 innings for Double-A Biloxi so far this season, striking out 24.7 percent of batters while walking 7.9 percent. He possesses three solid pitches in his fastball, slider and changeup and profiles as a future mid-rotation or back-end starter.

Brewers' Luis Ortiz: Strikes out eight for Biloxi
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz tossed six shutout innings Wednesday, giving up five hits and two walks while striking out eight for Double-A Biloxi.

The beefy right-hander has been pitching at Double-A since May of 2016, logging a total of 168.1 innings at the level over that span. Given his experience against this caliber of competition, it's hard to get too excited about anything he does until he gets a promotion to the much more challenging Pacific Coast League. That said, the eight strikeouts were a welcome sight, as his season high for strikeouts in 2017 was seven, on one occasion.

Brewers' Luis Ortiz: Expected to toss 100-plus innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz is healthy and looks to throw over 100 innings for the first time in his career in 2018, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Ortiz started 20 games at Double-A Biloxi in 2017, finishing with a 4.01 ERA across 94.1 innings. Manager Craig Counsell thinks highly of Milwaukee's 2014 first-round draft pick and wants him to throw at least 100 innings this season. Ortiz worked on flexibility during the offseason to help prevent injuries, something that have plagued him in the past.

Brewers' Luis Ortiz: Cleared to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ortiz (illness) has been cleared to start Tuesday for Double-A Biloxi.

Ortiz had been running a fever over the weekend, which prompted Biloxi to scratch him from his scheduled turn Sunday. After a couple days off to recover, it sounds like the right-hander is feeling healthy again, so the illness isn't something that should hinder him the rest of the way. Ortiz has compiled a 3.57 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 72:31 K:BB over 80.2 innings in the Southern League this season.
