David Ortiz Back in Ten Days

Tim Kurkjian tweeted that barring any further setbacks, David Ortiz expects to be ready to take his spot in the middle of the Red Sox lineup in ten days. Ortiz has had numerous setbacks, and is a very large 37 year-old man, so it is still way too early to be excited about a return earlier than many of us feared. That doesn't change the fact that the sooner Ortiz can come back, the better.
