Ortiz enjoyed a productive 13-year Major League Baseball career, pitching in the post-season four times and tallying 113 career wins. His best year was 2003 when he played for the Atlanta Braves and made the All-Star Team. His 21 wins that season led the National League and were key to the Braves capturing their 12th straight National League East title. This stellar performance was recognized with a fourth-place finish in Cy Young Award voting. Ortiz’s consistency is evidenced by his four seasons winning 15 or more games.
