Despite having a platelet-rich plasma injection on his strained right Achilles', Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz said he likely would undergo more invasive "shockwave'' therapy during the offseason so that he could be fully healed for the 2013 season.

"I've recovered so well," Ortiz said before Wednesday night's game against the Rays. "But the doctors said, 'Hey, for you not to have to worry about that anymore, you should do it.' And I probably will, just to make sure that I'm not going to have to deal with that anymore. That way, I'll be absolutely 120 percent by spring training. No question.''
