Even with rest, Ortiz still sore, no timetable for return

BALTIMORE -- As David Ortiz entered the third day of his three-day rest period, he unfortunately did not have an encouraging report on his right Achilles strain, which has kept him out of Boston's lineup since July 16.

"I kind of chilled all day and I'm just sore today," Ortiz said. "I'm going to try to continue doing what the trainers have in mind and see if I feel better and see if I can play at some point."

Not being able to help the Red Sox at a time they are fighting for their postseason lives is driving Ortiz crazy.

"It's something I don't have the patience for," Ortiz said. "I don't think we'll have any activity today."

Ortiz is hitting .316 with 23 homers and 58 RBIs in 89 games.
