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.

The team lists Ortiz as day-to-day, so it does not appear as though the 38-year-old is in danger of missing much additional time. Ortiz drove in a run in a 2-for-5 performance Thursday and now needs just one more to reach the 100-RBI mark for the eighth time in his career.
