Red Sox | David Ortiz sore
Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz (oblique) said a sore left oblique muscle was responsible for his recent slump. "I've been dealing with a sore left side," Ortiz said. "For that reason I was pulling the ball rather than hitting it the opposite way." He had one hit in his last 20 at-bats entering Tuesday, May 14.
Fantasy Tip: There's no doubting that Ortiz can still swing the stick at age 37, but he's pretty fragile these days, and he's looked very ginger while running the bases at times. It could only be a matter of time before another ailment, or a recurrance of his Achilles' problems, lands him back on the disabled list.
