David Ortiz Has A Good Monday In Batting Cage

Papi Improving
David Ortiz had another good day in the batting cages on Monday—feel no ill effects in his Achilles tendon area. The Red Sox are being extremely deliberate in his recovery process and now say he might actually take BP on the field this week sometime. Said John Farrell about the big DH, “The biggest thing is the number of swings he’s taking, he’s not feeling any irritation or push-back from the volume he’s going through.” Again, unless Papi's bat is in the middle of the lineup most of the year (in excess of 140 games), this team has no shot.
