Red Sox | Would like to see David Ortiz do something on field

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said the team would like to see DH David Ortiz (Achilles') do something on the field before the end of spring training. "We're working off David's tolerance and his ability to ramp up the intensity," Farrell said. "The one thing … what we'd like to see before we break camp, and that would be to see him on the field in some capacity, whether that's running the bases, whether that's taking BP on the field. That would be a reasonable goal, a reasonable step."

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz is expected to start the season on the 15-day disabled list and it is not known when he will be ready to play in games again. Owners could try to stash him on their bench or disabled list but may have to wait a few weeks to get production out of him.
