Ortiz (foot) expects to play in Monday's game against the Orioles, Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ortiz was hit on the top of his left foot on Saturday, which was already bothering him, and is causing him to limp. He was scratched from Sunday's lineup, but thinks he'll be good to go tomorrow. The designated hitter's sore left foot would most effect his speed in the case that manager John Farrell places him in the lineup Monday.

X-rays on the left foot of Ortiz came back negative Sunday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ortiz was a late scratch from Sunday's lineup after he arrived at the ballpark with a sore foot that had only gotten worse from Saturday. The team sent their DH for precautionary X-rays, and it seems as if the ensuing results were favorable. If the pain subsides enough, there's a chance Ortiz could be back in action as early as Monday. Although speed was never his strong suit, running is currently the ability that is affected most by the ailment.

The Red Sox clarified that Ortiz was scratched from the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays due to a sore left foot, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

As was speculated, the Red Sox gave Ortiz the afternoon off after he was struck in the foot by a pitch in the fifth inning of Saturday's game. It's not believed that Ortiz's soreness is a serious concern, so he could step back into the lineup for Monday's series opener with the Orioles.

Ortiz was a late scratch from Sunday's lineup against the Blue Jays, Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Red Sox haven't yet provided a reason behind Ortiz's late removal, but his absence from the lineup might be due to the fact that he was hit by a pitch in the foot in Saturday's game. Any lingering injury Ortiz might be dealing with likely isn't a significant one, so he could just be sitting out Sunday for precautionary purposes. With Ortiz out, Hanley Ramirez will move from first base to cover DH, while Travis Shaw moves across the diamond to cover first.
