Ortiz dropped to five-hole

David Ortiz, off to his worst start to a season since 2010, was dropped to fifth in the batting order tonight by manager John Farrell.

This is the first time Ortiz has started a game at a spot other then third or fourth since 2012, under Bobby Valentine.

Pablo Sandoval will hit third, followed by Hanley Ramirez, at Target Field against Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey.
