Shelved Red Sox DH David Ortiz plans to 'come back and rake'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz has the same plan that a guy taking a break doing yard work might have.

"Come back and rake," he said.

Ortiz was referring to his forced time off. John Farrell has benched the designated hitter so he can figure out his swing, which has not been itself lately. His 1-for-20 and 3-for-31 slides that have lowered his batting average to a disturbing .216 motivated the move.

Whether it reaps its intended rewards is another matter.

"Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't," Ortiz told WEEI about the hiatus. "...I've just been thinking too much and overdoing things. Sometimes that works and sometimes that doesn't. I know this ballclub needs me, and now we have a long season ahead. I'm just going to try to pull the best out of this."

That means finding the stroke that has made him a potential Hall of Famer.

"A guy like myself, I always have to be on top of my game because every night I see the best coming out of everyone," he said. "So the minute I walk away from my game, this is exactly what happens. The pitcher be like, 'Just keep that monster down there sleeping. Don't wake him up. Bury him.' So in my case, I've got to figure out how to execute better."

Red Sox's Farrell: David Ortiz to be held out of lineup for a few days
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox DH David Ortiz will be held of the starting lineup for "a couple of days" to work on his swing, manager John Farrell told WEEI on Thursday.

"Get some extra work done in the cage, try to get him going again before we get him back in the lineup," Farrell said, per WEEI. "I think he’s feeling under the weather as well. As you do with every player, you talk and try to keep up to date with each guy individually and this is a chance to hopefully have him get over that, as well as address some of the things and give him a little bit of a breather."

Earlier Thursday, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington told MLB Network Radio that Ortiz would likely be held out of the lineup Thursday against the Rangers.

Ortiz, who hasn't started just five times in the first 47 games, has been struggling offensively for most of the season. He is mired in a 1-for-20 slump in his last five games and is batting just .171 in his last 18 games, dropping his average from .250 to .216.

Ortiz also has just six home runs and a .377 slugging percentage on the season.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Slumping Red Sox slugger David Ortiz dropped to fifth in lineup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox manager John Farrell decided to shake up his lineup Tuesday at Minnesota, as he dropped struggling slugger David Ortiz from the third spot in the lineup to fifth. Ortiz had hit third 38 times and fourth just twice this season prior to Tuesday's game.

"It's happened to me before, and it wasn't as nice as going down to fifth," Ortiz said.

The last time Ortiz hit fifth to start a game was 2012. He has a .300/.382/.550/.933 slash line in 467 career games batting fifth.

Ortiz is hitless in his last three games and is batting .177 over his last 16 games. He has a .221 aaverage and .383 slugging percentage on the season.

Red Sox's John Farrell shuffles lineup before facing Angels
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Red Sox manager John Farrell wanted to shake things up against the Angels, he did just that prior to Saturday's game, per The Boston Herald.

Farrell slotted second baseman Dustin Pedroia into the leadoff spot, inserted his Triple-A call up Rusney Castillo to play centerfield and dropped David Ortiz to the cleanup spot.

Hanley Ramirez, who was nursing his left hand after being hit by a pitch on Friday, is also back in the lineup. Shane Victorino will hit second in the lineup after missing two games with a sore calf.

The Sox (19-23) are currently in fourth place in the American League East Division.
