David Ortiz Injury: Red Sox Slugger To Be Placed On DL

Despite saying he feels alright which was backed-up by a negative MRI on his Achilles tendon, Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz will be placed on the disable list, manager Bobby Valentine told Boston's WEEI on Wednesday. Minor-leaguer Mauro Gomez has been called up to replace Ortiz on the roster.

On Monday, Ortiz was hurt while rounding second base on a home run by teammate Adrain Gonzalez. Ortiz hobbled to home plate, but after the game said he was fine. His claim was supported the following day when an MRI showed no tear or rupture, however, the 36-year-old was seen wearing a walking boot and admitted he may miss a week.

Ortiz's DL stint is retroactive from July 17.

David Ortiz Injury: MRI Results Show No Tear In Achilles, Return Still Unknown

As David Ortiz expected, the MRI on his Achilles tendon Tuesday showed "no tear or rupture" and the Boston Red Sox slugger is expected to be ok, sources are telling Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald. The timetable for Ortiz's return, however, is still unknown.

The news comes as a relief to Red Sox fans, who have witnessed their fair share of injuries to star players this season. Ortiz was hurt Monday night when he was rounding second base after first basemen Adrian Gonzalez smashed his game-winning home run in the eighth inning. Ortiz hobbled around third and stepped on home plate.

After the game, Ortiz told reporters he didn't fell any pain and he should be alright. It is still unknown how many games the slugger will miss or if he will be put on the disable list.
