Jhailyn Ortiz, aged 23 is a Dominican professional baseball outfielder in the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball.
Ortiz was the player for whom the Phillies paid a high price, $4.2 million in 2015.
Ortiz spent the 2019 season with the High-A Clearwater Threshers, slashing.200/.272/.381 in 115 games with 19 home runs and 65 RBI.
Ortiz did not play in a game in 2020 since the minor league season was canceled due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
The next year, he moved to the United States and continued to hit well, hitting 16 home runs in two seasons of short-season baseball. He would have been stuck in a rut since then, barely hitting.
Even though he was only 20 years old at the time, he finished in the top 200 in 2019. He wasn’t getting on base at all, and he struck out more than 30% of the time.
He seemed to reset after missing a year of growth in 2020, as he returned in 2021 and batted considerably better, dropping his strikeout rate and improving his walk rate.
