Ortiz is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ortiz has served as Boston's DH every day that position has been available since Aug. 25. The veteran previously hinted at a day off Sunday, and manager John Farrell will concur, instead starting Travis Shaw at first base. The move will also give fellow veteran Hanley Ramirez a day off from playing the field, as he'll move to the DH role for the evening contest.
