David Ortiz is back in the Boston Red Sox’s lineup, and NESN’s Tom Caron thinks the designated hitter (and sometimes first baseman) should be in your fantasy lineup, too.
Ortiz left Sunday’s game with a calf injury, but he’ll be at the plate in Boston’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday. What’s more, Big Papi has four home runs against Blue Jays pitcher Mark Buehrle, and he’ll certainly be swinging for the fences, as he needs just three more homers to join the 500 club.
