Ortiz update

FORT TRAFFICJAMBURG, Fla. -- Gardy says Ramon Ortiz could report to camp by Thursday, although the veteran pitcher’s arrival still remains uncertain because of visa issues in the Dominican Republic.

“I’m not worried about him,” Gardy said. “He knows what it takes to get himself ready. I’m anxious to get a chance to meet him. I hear he’s a really classy kid.”

And a snappy dresser, too, our sources tell us. Hear the suits are quite flashy and colorful. More important, the very lean Ortiz needs to get to camp ASAP to bring down the average weight of the starting rotation.
