    Like fellow Puerto Rican Javier Rodriguez, Ortiz is a sweet-swinging outfielder who boosted his stock as much as anyone at the Excellence Tournament in May. Though he doesn't have the classic size of a corner outfielder, Ortiz has pure hitter with a projectable bat and a good approach at the plate. With quick hands and power to all fields, Ortiz has good hitting mechanics and his bat stays in the hitting zone for a long time. He recorded a 6.7-second time in the 60, but Ortiz will likely play left field ultimately in pro ball. He projects to go in the top five rounds, and a team who saw him play well in May could take him as high as the third round.
