“In 2009, I was coming back from a hand injury [partially torn sheath, left wrist],” he said. “I injured my hand, badly. I tried to come back, but I wasn’t the same. It carried over until my hand started feeling better. I got bad habits from that.
I'm sure that Ortiz developed a better body and better work habits independent of his (alleged and likely) steroid use.
George Mitchell said he was clean.
From age 24 to 33 Ortiz career was a standard curve for a big guy, peaking at 29-31, starting to drop quick at 32. Then... from 33 to 37 his OPS has increased each year, from 794 at 33 to 899 to 953 to 1.026 to 1.126 this year. If that didn't raise a few eyebrows it should have. Especially for someone who played with a few guys who used PED's.
