Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, who hasn't played since Aug. 14 because of bursitis in his right heel, will be back in the lineup Wednesday night, manager Terry Francona said.
The Red Sox's Jacoby Ellsbury missed his third straight game on Monday.
Ellsbury reinjured? Martinez sore? It's never-ending for the Red Sox.
On similar career paths, David Ortiz and Vlad Guerrero reunite in Red Sox loss.
