Red Sox | David Ortiz to start playing Monday

Boston Red sox DH David Ortiz (heels, Achilles') will start playing in extended spring games Monday, April 8, and he could be ready by the third week of April.

Fantasy Tip: This is excellent news for Papi owners. Ortiz should see all, if not the vast majority of his at-bats this year from the designated hitter spot, so he basically will just need to prove that he can move around without pain. It's unclear how his lower body injuries will affect his power swing, though.
