The Phillies spent a lot of money on Ortiz in 2015, when he signed a $4.2 million contract.



The following year, he moved to the United States and went on to perform successfully in short-season baseball, hitting 16 home runs in two seasons.

He hasn’t hit .200 since then, despite the fact that he was only 20 at the time.



He couldn’t get on base and struck out over 30% of the time.

He returned in 2021 and batted considerably better, dropping his strikeout rate and raising his walk rate, indicating that the lost year of development in 2020 helped him reset.


Things appear to be getting back on track now that he has regained power and removed his calling card from the worldwide market.

He’s now on the 40-man roster, according to the report, so some decisions about Ortiz will need to be made.

Before making any firm choices, the organization will most certainly want to see how he performs in Double-A Reading, but the fact that he appears to have regained some of his prospect status is encouraging.

He could be valuable if their major league team suffers from injuries, or he could be traded if another team is ready to give him a chance soon.

In Philadelphia, he’s now trapped behind a certain MVP, but if he keeps improving and hitting like he did last season, the organization will find a spot for him.
