The Boston Red Sox placed closer Andrew Bailey on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his biceps on Monday.
Tracy Clements gives her take on David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox.
David Ortiz had been confident throughout Spring Training that he would be in the Red Sox lineup come Opening Day, but the DH seemed a lot less optimistic about his return on Thursday.
Red Sox DH David Ortiz is still very hopeful he can return to the team this season, and said team doctors told him there is a 60-70-percent chance that happens.
Designated hitter David Ortiz re-aggravated his right Achilles strain Friday night against the Kansas City Royals, and was shut down by Boston on Monday morning.
The Boston Red Sox activated DH David Ortiz from the disabled prior to Friday’s game against the Royals, and “Big Papi” made an immediate impact.
If all goes well, Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz will be back in the Boston lineup Friday night as the team opens a four-game set against the Royals at Fenway Park.
David Ortiz is hoping to return to the Red Sox by the end of their home stand this week.
The Red Sox bullpen could receive another boost Tuesday night when right-hander Andrew Bailey is expected to be activated.
The Red Sox placed reliever Vicente Padilla on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday, recalling right-hander Clayton Mortensen to take his place.
