Red Sox's David Ortiz: Likely to retire in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

David Ortiz will retire at the end of the 2016 season, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

It's important to note Ortiz has not yet confirmed the news, however considering he will turn 40 years-old Wednesday, it wouldn't be a surprising development. The designated hitter just finished recording his third straight 30+ home run, 100+ RBI season so it's clear his skills at the plate haven't diminished much with age, but he's played just 20 games at first base over the last three years and he vehemently expressed disinterest in seeing more time at that position earlier this season. As long as Ortiz stays healthy, he should be in line for another stellar season at the plate.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz remains sidelined Saturday vs. Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is not in the lineup for Saturday's contest against the Cleveland Indians , Sean McAdam of Comcast Sports Net reports.

The 39-year-old had been kept out of the lineup Thursday with some general soreness, so it's not a surprise to see him out of the lineup Saturday as well. Brock Holt will get the start at DH instead and hit sixth in the batting order

Red Sox DH David Ortiz hits 37th homer of the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was 1 for 3 with a two-run home run in a losing effort against Cleveland on Friday night.

He sat out Thursday's contest suffering from general soreness, and there was some talk that he might be shut down for the season, but he was back in his normal clean-up spot and serving as the designated hitter. He swatted his 37th home run in the fourth inning, and was later removed for a pinch hitter when the game was out of reach. His status for the weekend is unclear, so those with daily changes will want to monitor Boston's lineup on Saturday and Sunday.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz could miss rest of season with soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is reportedly dealing with some "general soreness" and could miss the remainder of the regular season, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Given Ortiz's age (40), it's not a huge surprise that his body has undergone some wear and tear. He will skip his third game in the past six, and it sounds as though he may have played his last contest of the 2015 campaign.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz gets a day off on Monday vs. Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is not in the lineup Monday against the Yankees, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

The move comes as a bit of a surprise, as Ortiz sat Saturday as well and the Yankees are sending right-hander Ivan Nova to the mound. Allen Craig will get the start as the team's DH in his place and bat sixth.
