Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz has been excused by the team to attend to personal matters in the Dominican Republic. He should return to the team on Friday. Ortiz has not played in any games or even fully taken part in Spring workouts. He is recovering from an Achilles tendon injury he suffered last July. It's not clear what the exact nature of the personal matter is.
