Looks like the club is leaning towards taking Ortiz off the active roster with what appears to be a twisted ankle.  Ortiz is set to get the knee checked out in Fukuoka and as of now, the club expects him to miss more than 10 days.

It seems Jose Ortiz was taken out of today's game against the Nippon Ham Fighters after he sustained an injury to his right knee while making a play on a fly ball hit by Kensuke Tanaka in the bottom of the third.  No word as of yet on how serious the injury is.
