No MRI for Ortiz
Red Sox manager Terry Francona just said that there’s been no MRI for David Ortiz’s right knee nor is there one scheduled. Ortiz confirmed that after the game, but also added that he’s been playing with a torn meniscus since early last season and seemed to be leaning toward surgery this winter.
So when Ortiz fouled a ball off his body last night, naturally he pounded it squarely off the right knee. Hopefully he won’t be too sore tomorrow. I thought tonight Ortiz took some of the best swings he’s had in a while. Manny swung the bat well also.
We’ll see what Friday brings. Tonight was a good night all around for the Sox.
I’ll have more in-depth blogging tomorrow.
