While many believe that Adam Haseley or Mickey Moniak have the highest potential, I am a strong believer in Ortiz. Ortiz possesses good power and showed off the ability to get on base and hit to all areas of the field last season.
This season for the Blue Claws, Ortiz got off to a slow start in June, he has picked it up big time, batting .317 for the month. Something that leads many to believe in Ortiz is his work ethic. Ortiz’ is regarded as one of the best on his team.
This constant desire to improve, along with his raw ability makes Ortiz an exciting and underrated prospect. Trading him could wind up haunting the Phils if Ortiz is able to succeed elsewhere.
