Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Red Sox | David Ortiz runs

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz (heels, Achilles') ran outfield sprints without pain in his heels Monday, April 1, and will head to Florida to play in rehab games over the weekend. Ortiz is planning on playing "about four to five games" in Florida and then play a "few games" with Triple-A Pawtucket before returning. He isn't putting an exact timetable on his return.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz will have to be stashed in a disabled list spot until he returns, but he could become a nice source of home runs and RBIs for the cheap price he came at on draft day. Remaining healthy is a big question mark, though.
