Papi Got Injection; May Go On Next Road Trip

Winslow Townson/Associated Press

The plan is for the designated hitter to take things "day to day" and possibly accompany the Red Sox on their upcoming road trip starting Thursday. Visions of the following line-up are still dancing in our heads: Ellsbury, Crawford, Pedroia, Gonzalez, Ortiz, Ross, Middlebrooks, Saltalamacchia, Aviles. Someday.
