Red Sox | David Ortiz expected to be ready

Boston Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said DH David Ortiz (Achilles') is expected to be the team's designated hitter on opening day. However, it's unknown how strong Ortiz will be after he just started running recently. "He's hitting and doing his agility and starting to run," Cherington said. "He's David Ortiz. We'll see where he is as we report 10 days from now or so and take it from there. We don't have any reason to think he won't be in our lineup on opening day."
