Turns out Fox Sports likes having David Ortiz in its lineup, too.
The network announced Monday that the former Red Sox slugger has signed a multiyear contract to be a studio analyst on its Major League Baseball coverage.
Ortiz will make his 2018 debut during Fox’s coverage of the All-Star Game in Washington next month. Overall, Ortiz will contribute to spring training, regular-season, All-Star Game, postseason, and World Series coverage.
The terms of the contract were undisclosed. But the role is not new to Ortiz, who retired from the Red Sox following the 2016 season.
