David Ortiz Not Planning to Steal Bases With Newfound Speed, But Returns to Lineup After Heel Injury (Video)

David Ortiz has been phenomenal at the plate this season, something he attributes in part to dropping some weight in the offseason.

The now fleet-of-foot Ortiz has also been steaming around the bases — which may have caused some problems Friday night when he injured his left heel.

Ortiz is back in the lineup for Saturday, though. And although he's ruling out base stealing, manager Bobby Valentine said he should be ready to go. See what Valentine and the Red Sox GameDay LIVE presented by UNO crew had to say.
