Drew will get more tests today and is still suffering from concussion symptoms. Word is it will be "a few days" before he even gets back on a field. Ortiz is still in that 5-7 day "shutdown" window. He could take batting practice on Monday of next week. So, essentially, nothing has changed on all three. With exactly 17 days until Opening Day, these three injuries to key players are extremely troubling.
