David Ortiz: Sox "Bracing For The Likelihood" Ortiz Won't Return This Season

Rotowire.com
Update: The Red Sox are "bracing for the likelihood" that Ortiz will not return this season, the Boston Herald reports.

Recommendation: At this point it makes sense for the Red Sox to shut down Ortiz for the season and give his at-bats to younger players like Mauro Gomez and Ryan Lavarnaway. Ortiz will be a free agent after the season, and while the Red Sox are clearly making some changes to the roster, it would be a surprise if they don't try to re-sign him.
