In 1992, Ortiz received a contract with the ‘Seattle Mariners’; written down in this contract, he was named ‘David Arias’. For some time the athlete played for the subsidiary team ‘Mariners’, ‘Wisconsin Timber Rattlers’; later it was transferred to the ‘Minnesota Twins’. After the transition to the new leadership, David said that he prefers to be called ‘Ortiz’.

Major League Baseball – as part of ‘Twins’ – David debuted September 2, 1997-th. For several years he alternately played in the games ‘Twins’ and its subsidiaries ‘New Britain Rock Cats’. At the time an athlete not extremely stable result, and he was literally chased injury – so in 1998 and 2001, Ortiz was injured wrist in 2002 – damaged (the entire season) knee. After the season 2002-2003 ‘Twins’ released David ‘free bread’, and failing to find a team that wanted to take David on them.
