Red Sox | David Ortiz not cleared to run bases

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz (Achilles') won't be cleared to run the bases until at least next weekend. However, manager John Farrell isn't concerned about a slow start for Ortiz, as he continues to take batting practice. "The fact that he's taking regular BP right now, he's at least getting that baseline," Farrell said Sunday, Feb. 24. "And come (the middle) of the month, we're not pinned into our game schedule with the 'A' games. We can use minor league games to get him 5-6 at bats on a given day."
