Joe Ortiz off to strong start


by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2013) Rangers rookie reliever Joe Ortiz has been impressive this season. 

Ortiz, who entered Friday's series opener against the Mariners with a 0.84 ERA, has not surrendered a run in his last five appearances. 

"He gets outs and he gets them quick," manager Ron Washington told MLB.com. "He acts like he has no pulse, really."


Rangers rookie reliever drawing Fantasy interest


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2013) Rangers rookie reliever Joe Ortiz has racked up a lot of Fantasy points because he's vultured two relief wins, which has landed him a spot on the most viewed list. Fantasy owners are obviously pondering, what is his Fantasy value?

This is not hard to figure out. Without regular save chances, Ortiz will go unowned in most Fantasy formats. There's no denying this 22-year-old reliever is talented. He posted a 2.28 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 276 1/3 relief innings in the minors. He even recorded 28 saves, which could lead to him being a closer later in his career. However, as of now the Rangers are using him in long relief, so Ortiz really only has Fantasy value in the deepest of formats, particularly AL-only and Rotisserie leagues.


Rangers like Joe Ortiz despite debut


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2013) Rangers manager Ron Washington told ESPN.com Tuesday he was happy with reliever Joe Ortiz's major-league debut on opening day. Ortiz allowed one run on two hits over an inning of work against the Astros on Sunday.

"He's going to give up some hits," Washington said. "He's going to give up some runs. The the thing about him, what we like more than anything else, is he continued to attack the zone. He didn't back down. It was nice to get him out there and let him see that if you execute, good things will happen."

"He made his pitches and walked off the field,” Washington said.
