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."
