David Ortiz Reportedly Headed To Disabled List

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz will be placed on the disabled list due to continued issues with his right Achilles, according to Tom Caron of NESN.com.

The 36-year-old slugger will receive an injection in addition to undergoing a week of treatment on his Achilles in the hopes of potentially returning prior to the conclusion of the 2012 season. Ryan Kalish, a 24-year-old, left-handed hitting outfielder, has been recalled to fill the open roster spot.

Ortiz returned to action on Friday night after missing 35 games because of the injury. He went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in his return. However, he continued to feel discomfort and was removed from the lineup for the remainder of the series.

Via Boston.com:

"It bothered him. It wasn't as pain-free as he was hoping,'' [Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said.]
