Ortiz fell to 0-8 this season after another rough start on Monday against the Toronto Blue Jays. Baltimore lost 8-1 after Ortiz allowed six runs, including two homers, in three innings.
The Diamondbacks placed Ortiz on unconditional waivers on Wednesday, likely ending his short tenure with Arizona. The right-hander signed a $33 million, four-year deal with Arizona in Dec. 2004 after a successful stint with Atlanta and has been a bust in the desert. He was 0-5 with a 7.54 ERA in six starts this season and he was 1-14 in his last 19 starts dating to May 2005.
Ortiz was designated for assignment on Tuesday after a rough start to the season. A former 20-game winner with the Atlanta Braves, the 32-year-old Ortiz simply has been awful since joining the Arizona Diamondbacks. He was 5-11 with a 6.89 ERA last season and has started this season going 0-5 with a 7.54 ERA in six outings.
After nearly two weeks without a game appearance, Ortiz was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Arizona Diamondbacks, retroactive to April 24. The right-hander departed his April 18 start with a cramp in his right calf, and he and the team have been at odds ever since about whether he should be on the DL.
Ortiz was moved from the Arizona rotation to the bullpen two days ago, and now The Arizona Republic is reporting he may be headed to the disabled list. The right-hander departed his April 18 start with a cramp in his right calf, and the Diamondbacks are considering a DL move that would lead to a lengthy rehab assignment for the struggling veteran. "They're basing it on two starts," said Ortiz, who is balking at the idea.
The Diamondbacks activated Ortiz from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, and he will start on Saturday against the Braves. Ortiz has been sidelined since June 18, when he strained his rib cage, causing a stress fracture. This season, he is 4-6 with a 5.88 ERA in 14 starts.
Ortiz has rejoined the Arizona Diamondbacks, and barring any setbacks, it appears he will be activated from the disabled list in time to take the mound against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday. The righthander has been sidelined since mid-June with a stress fracture in his right rib cage. Prior to the injury, he was 4-6 with a 5.88 ERA in 14 starts this season.
Ortiz had some minor discomfort while throwing on Tuesday, but reported no pain on Wednesday. The Diamondbacks' righthander, who has been sidelined since the middle of the month with a strained right rib cage, will be limited to throwing from 30-45 feet over the next several days before being re-evaluated to determine the next step in his rehab program. He does not appear to be close to a return.
Ortiz tried throwing at a short distance for about five minutes on Tuesday, but reported some minor discomfort in his side and cut the session short. The Diamondbacks' righthander, who has been sidelined since the middle of the month with a strained right rib cage, does not appear close to a return to the rotation. He will be re-evaluated later this week.
The Diamondbacks placed Ortiz on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right rib cage Saturday. This is the first time in his major league career that Ortiz will miss a starting assignment. Signed as a free agent this past offseason, Ortiz is 4-6 with a 5.88 ERA for the Diamondbacks.
