Latest Update Ortiz remains out Red Sox starting lineup Monday Tue Aug, 26, 02:54 PM
Is one of the great clutch hitters of his era and an RBI machine. Owns a lethal combination of plate patience and a monster power stroke. Is a born leader.
Flaws: : Has seen his eye and bat speed decline with age. Is a complete non-factor on the basepaths and isn't a great glove at first base. Could stand to cut down on his whiffs.
Ortiz has been out of the lineup after fouling a ball off of his foot. With the Red Sox no longer competing for a playoff spot there is no reason to rush Big Papi back from injury if he is not 100%.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Ortiz left Sunday's game with a bruised foot, and it appears that it will keep him out of the lineup on Monday as well. Tests were negative, so he should be fine and back on the field within a few days. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Big Papi was diagnosed with a foot contusion before the MRI, but that is exactly what the injury appears to be. Consider him day-to-day at the moment.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
The extent of the injury has not been announced yet, but he will likely miss a couple of games. Ortiz continues to hit, despite his age, and be a solid fantasy contributor. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
