2012 Anthony Ortega was supposed to be the safe prospect—pitchability, no upside. Since 2009, though, he has an 8.22 ERA spread across four levels. No, it's not safe. It's very dangerous. Be careful.
2011 Ortega’s ceiling never reached the kind of height that makes scouts and real-estate agents swoon, but the six-foot righty has to stoop to fit under it now. In the wake of a successful 2008 in the rotation, injuries have limited the Dominican to 56 total innings over the last two seasons, spread between Double- and Triple-A, and the majors, but they haven’t exerted the same slimming effect on his ERA: Ortega has allowed 62 runs over that span. On the plus side, only 55 of them were earned. A move to the bullpen hasn’t kept him healthy so far, though his arm was sound enough to see some action in the Venezuelan winter league.
2010 Ortega won the Angels' Minor League Pitcher of the Year award thanks to a breakout 2008 in which he pitched down in the zone more consistently and generated more ground balls, but the follow-up didn't go so well. After battling forearm and elbow problems during spring training, he was pummeled both at Salt Lake City, and during his brief major-league trial as well. Shortly after returning to Triple-A, he was sidelined—for the year, as it turned out—due to elbow inflammation. A pitch-to-contact type whose upside is as a fourth or fifth starter, Ortega throws a low-90s fastball, but just an average curve, and he lacks a consistent out pitch.
2009 Venezuelan Anthony Ortega took a big step forward in 2008, but that only upgraded his outlook from organizational arm to potential middle reliever.
