Unflappable, loyal, and good-hearted, Ortiz grew up in a large family in South Texas, raised by first-generation immigrants from Mexico. On the team, he’s the buffer between Graves and Caulder. He keeps the peace with an even keel–hence his nickname, “Buddha.”
Ortiz cherishes his family. He knows how good he has it with his wife Jackie, even if she does run a tight ship. These two have an ironclad union that can weather any storm. Privately, Ortiz is worried about what his life will look like if he leaves the Team. Will he ultimately pledge allegiance to his brothers? Or his family?
