Ortiz to return to Boston for shoulder check
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz will go to Boston this week to have his sore right shoulder checked by doctors.

Ortiz, the Most Valuable Player of the A-L championship series against the New York Yankees, injured his shoulder August 29th sliding head-first into home plate against the Detroit Tigers.

He missed a game that week but finished the year OK, playing in 150 games and 14 more in the playoffs.

Ortiz also went on a postseason tour in Japan.

Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said today at the winter meetings that rest will probably take care of the shoulder, but the team wants to make sure.

Ortiz finished fourth in voting for the AL MVP after hitting .301 with 41 homers and 139 R-B-Is in the regular season.

He batted .400 with five homers and 19 RBIs in the playoffs, hitting three walkoff hits in the postseason, two of them homers.
