David Ortiz will not play baseball this winter
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) -- Red Sox slugger David Ortiz will not play baseball this winter in his native Dominican Republic because of a nagging injury in his right shoulder.

Ortiz says he feels �very strong discomfort� in the shoulder and wants to rest it so he is ready for spring training. He says the injury happened in August during a game against the Detroit Tigers and he needed cortisone shots to finish the season.

He finished last season with a .301 average, 41 homers and 138 R-B-I�s. He was named M-V-P of the American League Championship series.

Ortiz has played winter ball for the Escogido Lions for seven consecutive seasons dating back to 1997.
