A Curve Ball

During his tenure with the Twins, Ortiz suffered from various injuries, which in turn affected his performance. He was released from the Twins in 2002, despite hitting 58 home runs and 238 runs batted in (RBIs). His mother, Angela Rosas Arias, was killed in a car crash that same year.
