New Red Sox Outfielder Alex Verdugo Could Not Wait To Hug David Ortiz


It’s safe to say Alex Verdugo had himself a great Thursday morning.

Verdugo, who was acquired by Boston in the blockbuster deal that sent Mookie Betts and David Price to the Dodgers, gushed over David Ortiz during his first media availability as a member of the Red Sox. The 23-year-old thought he might cry upon meeting Big Papi, and noted he was going to give the legendary slugger “the biggest hug.”

The talented young outfielder certainly lived up to his world, as he looked like a little kid as he raced to embrace Ortiz, who arrived to Fort Meyers, Fla. on Thursday.

Verdugo would be wise to pick Ortiz’s brain as he tries to make his first season in Boston a great one.
