Valentine originally thought that Ortiz would be able to avoid the disabled list and would only miss a week, but that is not the case. Ortiz was placed on the 15 day DL yesterday after suffering a minor injury to his right heel while rounding the bases after Gonzalez’ home run Monday night. Ortiz has been the best Red Sox player by far and away this season. The lone Sox all star has a 1.024 OPS this year; tops in the American League. Mauro Gomez was called up for his second stint in the big league this season. He hit .300/.323/.400 in 31 plate appearances earlier this year.
