Recap: Daisuke deals seven strong in win over Royals

As we all expected, Daisuke Matsuzaka returned from the DL today and was an efficient, strike-throwing machine. Huh? Dice pitched seven innings, allowing just two walks and five hits to stymie Kansas City. He also struck out six Royals for his first win in what was unquestionably his best start of the year. His ERA is now down to just a hair over 5.  If Matsuzaka has a strong...

Speaking to reporters in Boston's dugout about 45 minutes before...

Boston's Ortiz plans to return before season ends

David Ortiz is back on the disabled list. Ortiz's return to the Boston Red Sox's lineup lasted exactly one game -- Friday night against the Kansas City Royals -- before his strained right Achilles tendon forced him out of action again.

David Ortiz Sits Once Again in Daisuke Matsuzaka's Return Against Royals

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington wasn't willing to make an informal announcement about David Ortiz on Monday morning during a radio appearance. He said that would be ironed out later in the day. There may be indication that Ortiz will be at the very least heading back to the disabled list with the omission of the designated hitter's name from the Boston lineup for the...

David Ortiz Opts for PRP Treatment Over Surgery in Hopes of Returning This Season

BOSTON -- Another injection will be needed to save David Ortiz's season.

David Ortiz May Be Headed Back to Disabled List With Achilles Injury That Just Won't Heal (Video)

Red Sox win, but the talk is about Ortiz

BOSTON - The Red Sox hung on for a win at Fenway Park Sunday, but much of the talk before and after the 8-6 victory over the Royals centered around David Ortiz and the likelihood the slugger will return to the disabled list Monday and could be shut down for the season.
