08:12 AM ET 03.04 | Though some may be wondering whether David Ortiz will be available for Opening Day, manager John Farrell isn't there yet. The Red Sox still believe their designated hitter will be ready. But the Sox have played 10 games in spring training and Ortiz has yet to get on the field. He was scheduled to go through a base-running drill Sunday but did not because of discomfort in his right Achilles' tendon. The tentative plan is try again on Monday. "They made a decision at the time he was going to run that he felt just a little bit of soreness and they backed off it," Farrell said. The Red Sox, Farrell said, ideally would want Ortiz to run the bases two days in a row before he gets into a game.

Wow. Two days in a row. What a brutal training regimen.

David may not have been the most intense person during rehab.

Run the bases two days in a row? With his wheels, just make him park farther from the field, the walk amounts to the same.

First player to hit 40 home runs and strike out 400 times in 440 at bats.

An even bigger red flag for the Red Sox.

It's certainly hard to visualize him exerting a lot of energy during a workout.
