Angels declined to exercised 2005 option on Ramon Ortiz, he got a 100,000 buy out.
Ramon Ortiz plans for the Winter.
beginning today's game he will in Licey bullpen until is in shape to join the rotation, I'm sure he'll make a good effort in order to get a contract.
Last year he did not play, apparently Anaheim denied permission to play in the winter.
Update: He's not free yet, Anaheim have until december 20 to offer him arbitration.
he was to pitch last night from the bulpen but instead was talking to his agent about the team desicion.
