Boston Red Sox

BOSTON (CBS) – Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is heading to the disabled list.

Ortiz injured his right Achilles Monday night while rounding second on an Adrian Gonzalez three-run home run against the Chicago White Sox. Ortiz said he suffered the injury when he hit the bag, but did not hear a pop.

An MRI on Tuesday did not reveal a tear or rupture, and the second opinion Ortiz received in Florida on Wednesday agreed with that.

But Ortiz, who was wearing a boot on his right foot on Tuesday, is expected to miss 10-14 days — making a trip to the DL necessary.

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine announced the move on Wednesday afternoon. Mauro Gomez is expected to take Ortiz’ spot on the roster.

Ortiz is currently leading Boston in batting average (.316), home runs (23), RBI (58) and OBP (.414).
