Earlier this month it appeared Boston Red Sox designated
hitter David Ortiz would be ready to go by Opening Day, as he recovered from an
Achilles injury that hampered him throughout the 2012 campaign. The slugger
continues on this projected timeframe, as he’s confident he’ll be ready for the
regular season opener, according to Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe.
Ortiz is very positive about his foot. Confident he will be ready for Opener. #RedSox
