Ortiz (wrist) may not play again this season, Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com reports.

Ortiz's wrist has become inflamed as a result of a check swing earlier in the week, and he said it feels similar to how he felt when he suffered a ligament tear in 2008. At this point, the Red Sox don't think his current injury is especially serious, but they will be cautious, putting Ortiz's availability for the weekend in question.

Ortiz (personal) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, CSNNE's Sean McAdam reports.

Ortiz is dealing with a personal matter and the Red Sox are playing in Pittsburgh, so there wouldn't necessarily be a spot for Ortiz even if he was ready to play. He should continue to be treated as day-to-day, but it's most likely Ortiz won't be back until this weekend's series in Baltimore.
