Player Notes
David Ortiz hit a three-run home run that proved to be the difference in the game, as the Red Sox held on for a 3-2 win over the Rays on Sunday.

Advice: The home run was Ortiz' only hit in three at-bats on the day, but it was a big one. He's now got five home runs in his last seven games, giving him 25 on the year. The ageless designated hitter is batting .251/.346/.505 with 76 RBI this season.

David Ortiz is back in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Advice: Big Papi didn't play Thursday after exiting Wednesday's game with back spasms, but he's made a quick recovery. The designated hitter will be facing David Price, who he had some harsh words for last month after Price hit him with a pitch.

CSNNE's Sean McAdam reports that David Ortiz (back) has told Red Sox manager John Farrell that he's "good to go" for Friday's game in Tampa.

Advice: The Red Sox haven't officially posted their lineup yet, but it sounds like Ortiz will be in it. Big Papi didn't play Thursday after exiting Wednesday's game with back spasms, but he's made a quick recovery. Ortiz is batting .251/.346/.501 with 24 homers and 72 RBI for the Sox this season.

David Ortiz (back) will be re-evaluated on Friday before it's determined how much time he might miss.

Advice: Ortiz exited Wednesday's game after admitting to feeling "like a little pop or something" in his upper back during his final at-bat. "I don't know. We haven't talked about it yet," Ortiz said of whether he will miss any additional time. "Pretty sure I can probably come in and see how it goes. But hopefully it's nothing serious."

David Ortiz hit a three-run homer Wednesday off R.A. Dickey in the loss to the Jays.

Thu, Jul 24 Rotoworld
David Ortiz hit another home run, finishing 2-for-5 overall in a loss to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Advice: Ortiz blasted a pair of home runs in Monday's rout of the Jays, but the rest of the lineup wasn't able to support pitcher Jake Peavy. Ortiz went yard in the eighth inning, a solo shot off of Dustin McGowan. The veteran DH continues to be productive, now with 23 home runs, 69 RBI, and a .253/.349/.500 slash line.

Wed, Jul 23 Rotoworld
David Ortiz slammed a pair of two-run homers off Brad Mills in the Red Sox's 14-1 drubbing of the Blue Jays on Monday.

Advice: The Red Sox opened the game dead last in the AL in runs, but at least temporarily moved up to 10th in the rout. It was Ortiz's third two-homer game of the year, the other two coming back-to-back against the Twins on May 13-14. He's struggled to hit for average lately, but he has 11 extra-base hits, 16 RBI and a 3/9 K/BB ratio in 15 games this month.
