Blue Jays file for free agency


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/6/2013) In addition to starting pitcher Josh Johnson, who was not extended a qualifying offer, and Munenori Kawasaki, who had his team option declined, Blue Jays starting pitcher Ramon Ortiz and outfielder Rajai Davis have filed for free agency.

Davis had 45 steals in a part-time role in 2013 and has averaged 41.7 steals in three seasons with the team.


Ramon Ortiz begins throwing program


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2013) Blue Jays right-handed pitcher Ramon Ortiz thought his career might be over when he tore up his elbow on June 2 during a game against San Diego. After undergoing surgery at the age of 40, it appeared to be a long shot that Ortiz would make it back to the majors, the National Post reports Sunday. 

Ortiz, however, recently started a throwing program at Toronto's spring training complex in Dunedin. He threw off flat ground at a distance of 75 feet Saturday. 

While Ortiz will not pitch in a game again this season, he does have high hopes of making it back next year.

(6/3/2013) Blue Jays pitcher Ramon Ortiz had his start cut short due to an apparent right elbow injury, according to MLB.com. 

Ortiz sustained the injury on a pitch to Chase Headley in the third. He slammed his glove to the ground and appeared to be in a great deal of pain. The 40-year-old allowed four runs in the second, including a three-run home run to Edinson Volquez. He surrendered four runs on five hits and one walk in two innings before leaving the game.

The Blue Jays have yet to release any further details on his injury.

Ramon Ortiz expected to be designated for assignment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2013) Blue Jays starting pitcher Ramon Ortiz is no longer scheduled to start Sunday against the Orioles, as manager John Gibbons announced Thursday Chad Jenkins is slated to start Sunday. As for Ortiz, he's expected to be designated for assignment to clear a roster spot for Sean Nolin, who will be promoted to start Friday's game.

Ortiz is 1-2 with a 4.08 ERA through four outings (three starts). He lasted just 2 1/3 innings in his latest start Tuesday against the Rays.


Ramon Ortiz expected to start Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Ramon Ortiz doesn't last very long


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2013) Blue Jays starter Ramon Ortiz, who has joined the rotation due to injuries to fellow starters Josh Johnson and J.A. Happ, did not fare very well Tuesday at home against the Rays.

With Alex Cobb once again pitching well, Ortiz suffered the defeat as he was out of the game just one out into the third inning. He allowed four earned runs on six hits and a walk over 54 pitches to fall to 1-2 for Toronto. Ortiz surrendered two solo homers in the game and struck out one.

The 39-year-old had given up just two earned runs in his first two starts spanning 12 innings for a 1-1 record. Unfortunately, he also walked five batters in one of those outings and his WHIP is high at 1.64.

It is uncertain at this time whether or not Ortiz will get another start for manager John Gibbons. If he does, it should come Sunday against Baltimore.

Blue Jays go with Chad Jenkins, Ramon Ortiz


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2013) The Blue Jays officially have announced Chad Jenkins will start Monday against Tampa Bay. Veteran Ramon Ortiz will follow him to the hill Tuesday against the Rays, MLB.com reports. 

The decision previously was put on hold due to the possibility that one or both of those pitchers could have been needed in the bullpen.

"We're good, we're fresh down there," manager John Gibbons said of his bullpen. "[Jenkins] was in case something happened to Buehrle really early or something."


Ramon Ortiz impresses in first victory


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2013) Blue Jays starter Ramon Ortiz enjoyed plenty of run support during his start Wednesday night at home against the San Francisco Giants. Toronto scored 10 times over the first three innings and Ortiz left the game with an 11-1 lead.

He was able to cruise to victory for his first win of the year as he improved to 1-1 over three starts. Ortiz allowed just one earned run, coming on a Pablo Sandoval sacrifice fly in the first inning. Otherwise, the Giants could not score off him over 100 pitches. He gave up six hits and walked one with one strikeout.

Ortiz, 39, was a bit shaky in his first start of the season on April 17 against the White Sox. However, he started May 10 at Boston and allowed just one run over five innings in a loss. He's given up just two runs over his last 12 innings and has impressed manager John Gibbons.

The Toronto rotation has been hindered by injuries with J.A. Happ and Josh Johnson both on the shelf. Ricky Romero has been unable to find the strike zone consistently. Because of that, Gibbons must keep turning to Ortiz, MLB.com reports. His next start should come Monday or Tuesday against Tampa Bay.

"One thing about Ortiz is he competes; he's been around. He knows what this level of baseball is all about," Gibbons said. "He relies on hitting his spots and getting a lot of ground balls like he did the other day. If he does that, he should be effective."

Ramon Ortiz draws another start


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2013) With Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow (back) scratched from his scheduled start, the team will use veteran Ramon Ortiz again in his place Wednesday against San Francisco, Sportsnet reports. Ortiz suffered the loss in his first outing with Toronto last Friday -- his first start since July 5, 2011 -- when he walked five batters over five innings at Boston.

Ramon Ortiz pegged with loss in debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2013) Blue Jays pitcher Ramon Ortiz, who was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo Thursday, made his season debut Friday night against the Red Sox.

Ortiz, who had not faced the Red Sox since 2004, turned in a decent performance as he allowed a run to score on a fielder's choice in the second for his only damage of the night. He was charged with one run and four hits over five innings of work in a 5-0 defeat. He walked five and struck out one in 96 pitches, 51 strikes.

Ortiz is scheduled to make his second start Wednesday at home against San Francisco. He has not faced the Giants since 2010.

Ramon Ortiz on track to start Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2013) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said pitcher Ramon Ortiz, who was recalled Thursday from Triple-A Buffalo, will start Friday at Boston, if he's not needed Thursday against the Rays, according to Sportsnet. The Blue Jays need a starter Friday since Brandon Morrow is being bumped to Sunday as he's dealing with back and neck spams.

Ortiz allowed two runs in eight innings in his last start Sunday for Buffalo. He could be inserted into the rotation with J.A. Happ on the disabled list and Ricky Romero optioned to Buffalo Thursday. Ortiz made his only appearance for Toronto this season in relief.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2013) The Blue Jays designated pitcher Ramon Ortiz for assignment Tuesday in order to make room for Aaron Laffey, who was claimed earlier in the day, Sportsnet.ca reports.

Ramon Ortiz glad to be back in majors


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The right-hander allowed five hits and a walk, striking out two in his return to the mound.

"The best thing in baseball is when you work hard, a lot of positive things can happen," Ortiz said. "I'm 40 [years old] soon, you don't see too many guys my age."
