Ortiz Sets Team Record

Esteban Ortiz broke the Calgary Pioneer’s all time record for games pitched passing Paul Stroud’s 798 games last week. With 801 games wearing a Calgary uniform, he now sits atop the leaderboard. Ortiz came up to Calgary in 2017 as a starter, but shifted to the bullpen and has played more years for the team than anyone else currently on the roster.

During his first 6 seasons, Ortiz tried to crack the starting rotation. He pitched exclusively as a starter in 2021 going 12-10 with a 4.78 ERA in 28 starts. He battled with management for several seasons when it became clear that he belonged in the bullpen and was nearly traded a number of times. He settled down to become a mainstay in the Pioneer’s bullpen, mostly as a middle reliever. In 2028 he managed to win 10 games out of the pen.

For the last few years Ortiz has primarily been a lefty stopper. This season left handed hitters are hitting only .217 against him and he has a 2.05 ERA over 63 games. He is a free agent after this year, but if he continues to pitch at this level it is likely that the team will extend the 37 year old.
