Big Papi is almost back.
David Ortiz begins the final leg of his rehab Thursday night at Triple-A Pawtucket, and Red Sox manager John Farrell is hopeful that the slugger will be back in the lineup for Boston by the time the team returns from Cleveland next weekend. Ortiz hasn’t played in a major league game since injuring his Achilles nearly eight months ago.
Peter Gammons joined Tom Caron on Red Sox Gameday Live Presented by DCU to discuss the designated hitter’s recovery efforts. See what they had to say in the video above.
