Friday, Red Sox manager John Farrell said that if David Ortiz’s injured heels continued to progress the designated hitter could resume some baseball activities Monday.

When asked about the timetable Saturday afternoon, Ortiz wouldn’t commit one way or another, simply saying, “Getting there.”

When asked if he felt better than when he initially stopped activities due to inflammation in both heels, Ortiz responded, “Probably.”

He later added when asked what was planned, “Once I get better, I’ll have an idea. But I’m not there yet.”

Earlier Saturday, Farrell reiterated that the plan heading into the season without Ortiz was to rotate players in the DH position according to matchups.

One possibility, Ryan Lavarnway, was broached by Farrell prior to the Red Sox’ game against the Rays.
