Another pitcher in Arizona in danger of losing his job
by Bob Timmermann
And Russ Ortiz isn't suspected of using HGH or steroids, he just plain stinks.
And the Arizona Republic's Bob McNanaman reports that Ortiz may be cut loose by the Diamondbacks despite being owed another $20 million over the course of his contract. Ortiz is 0-5 with a 7.54 ERA and was 5-11 with a 6.89 ERA in 2005.
When the Angels released Kevin Appier in 2003, they still owed him $15.67 million and that total is the current leader in the clubhouse.
