Ortiz threw only 30 innings for the Dodgers last year, and got torched. He had an ERA of 6.30 and a WHIP of 1.63. He did not pitch at all in 2008 or 2009, and has not posted an ERA under 5.00 since 2004.
The Dodgers waived him at the end of May last year. He was then picked up by the Mets in June. He was quickly released by them and signed again by the Rays in August. He did not make major league appearances for either of those teams.
