Russ Ortiz Opts-Out of Contract

Russ Ortiz opted out of his AAA contract today, ending his Yankees career. Ortiz was great for the Scranton Yankees going 2-1 with a 1.59 ERA in 3 starts. Ortiz was given an opt-out clause after 3 starts for AAA and chose to exercise it. The Yankees have now lost one of their few options for a 5th-starter if Sergio Mitre struggles. The options left appear to be Chad Gaudin, Josh Towers, or Kei Igawa.

    Oooof. Not that he was the grand saviour. But still having him, he was at least an option for the fifth spot.
