Below copy and paste is from Rotowire and is dated today. Good news for my roster since he is my starting 1B. Hopefully he can play the rest of the way.
>>News: Ortiz (shoulder) resumed swinging a bat prior to Boston's game on Monday night and could return to the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday, the Boston Herald reports.
Spin: Ortiz, who injured the shoulder while sliding into second base last Friday, took swings at soft tosses while in the batting cage. He reported still feeling some pain in the joint, but indicated there has been improvement in each of the last two days. "I've got to hit on the field (Tuesday) and see how it feels and I'll go from there," Ortiz said. "If I'm fine, I'll play (Wednesday). I always play sore anyways."<<
