Red Sox | David Ortiz not 100 percent

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz (Achilles') said his right Achilles' tendon is not yet 100 percent, but he was pain-free while working out in the Dominican Republic. He's still confident he'll be ready for the start of the season, though. "Tomorrow we're going to continue the drills," said Ortiz, who took batting practice Tuesday, Feb. 12. "The good thing is, I was hitting. It didn't bother me at all hitting. Running, doing agility drills, at the beginning I was a little concerned. Later on, I was going after it pretty normal. I didn't have any setbacks or anything. I was surprised myself."
