It’s all about the glove for Ortiz, who many scouts project to have a long professional career because he plays shortstop so well. He’s a plus defender with good actions in the field and is regarded as a very hard worker. His tick below-average to average arm plays up because he’s fast with his exchange and gets rid of the ball quickly. Ortiz is on the smaller side at 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds, and he makes limited impact when he connects. He has good bat-to-ball skills, however, and makes consistent contact at the plate. Ortiz is no more than an average runner, but his reputation as an impact defender at a premium position should get him drafted on Day 2.
