Russ Ortiz Re-Re-Re-Invents Himself?
Ken Rosenthal thinks Russ Ortiz might be near a comeback:
Free-agent right-hander Russ Ortiz, last seen pitching for the Giants in 2007, auditioned for about 10 clubs in Arizona last Friday, according to his agent, John Boggs. Ortiz, 34, threw 90-91 mph, Boggs said, topping out at 93. He is willing to start or relieve next season -- and yes, his four-year, $33 million contract with the Diamondbacks finally is about to expire.One of the knocks on Ortiz previously was that his velocity was down, way down (like in the mid-80's).
