Ortiz endured a rough weekend, leaving back-to-back outings Saturday and Sunday following a hit by pitch on his left elbow and fouling a ball of his right foot, respectively. As a result, he missed the past two games, but in his return to action, he's manning DH and batting third in the order.

Ortiz (elbow/foot) is out of the lineup Monday in Toronto and unsure whether he'll be able to play Tuesday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports. Speaking of his potential availability Tuesday, Ortiz said, "If I can jog around, I'll play."

However, Ortiz confirmed that "I can't put much weight on it, but it's better than it was last night or this morning." His description is understandable after fouling a ball off his right foot Sunday, which followed getting hit by a pitch on the left elbow Saturday. Despite his banged-up status, consider him day-to-day until further notice.

Ortiz left Sunday's game vs. the Mariners with a bruised right foot, Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports.

For the second straight game, Ortiz left early on account of a bruise, though it appears the left elbow contusion he sustained Saturday night is no longer an issue. Sunday's injury could be just a minor concern as well, as Ortiz seems to just be dealing with some swelling after fouling a ball off his foot. The Red Sox will likely reevaluate him Monday morning before determining if he's fit to play in the series opener against the Blue Jays.

As manager John Farrell alluded to in his post-game press conference, Ortiz will not require any time off after he left Saturday's contest with swelling on his elbow. He'll occupy the third spot in the Red Sox lineup, nestling in between Dustin Pedroia and Yoenis Cespedes.

Ortiz left Saturday's game with a left elbow bruise, the Boston Herald's Scott Lauber reports.

He reacted in intense pain when he was hit on the elbow by a pitch earlier in the game, but didn't come out until his next at-bat was due up. Assuming X-rays come back negative, he should be back in the lineup in short order.

Ortiz returned to action Friday night after getting an off day for general soreness. He went 2-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in a loss to the Mariners.

One of those two walks was intentional and came immediately before Yoenis Cespedes launched a three-run shot over the wall at Fenway. Ortiz appears to be over the soreness and will be even better when the Red Sox add Rusney Castillo to the lineup.
