Red Sox | David Ortiz looking healthy

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz (Achilles') admitted that the right Achilles' tendinopathy which delayed the start of his season isn't quite 100 percent, but he hasn't been careful when running. He doubled off the green monster at Fenway Park Wednesday, April 24, against the Oakland Athletics, and then slid feet-first into second base. "I'm not really concerned with getting injured again, but there's still some concern, because I'm not 100 percent yet," Ortiz said.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz has a 16-game hitting streak dating back to last season, and he looks healthy, even if he isn't feeling 100 percent. Still, he should be activated in all fantasy leagues going forward, although his limited eligibility as just a designated hitter or utility hitter does limit his usefulness somewhat.
