Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. As far as David Ortiz and Pawtucket Red Sox manager Gary DiSarcina are concerned, that’s where the Boston designated hitter should be Friday night when the team begins a homestand against Kansas City. “My idea [during this rehab assignment] was to put the ball in play so I could run and see how it felt,” Ortiz said Thursday of his injured right Achilles’ tendon, after Pawtucket was belted, 14-5, by Lehigh Valley. “I got the chance to taste that. It feels good. “I think I’ll go back to the big team [Friday] and try to keep it compact. I’m old enough to know to keep it compact. But my main key was to make sure my foot was fine.” Red Sox manager John Farrell also believes Ortiz will be back on Friday, too. “All things are pointing to his returning tomorrow when we get off this trip,’’ Farrell said before the Sox played the Indians at Cleveland. “To have his presence in the middle of the order certainly speaks for itself for the number of years and success he’s had. We certainly look forward to seeing him in the clubhouse tomorrow.” Globe: David Ortiz homers in rehab assignment finale After the Red Sox finished their sweep of the Indians and added to their six-game winning streak, they are about to get a whole lot stronger as David Ortiz is set to rejoin the club. There will unlikely be a game tonight, given this horrendous lockdown situation in Boston. Be safe everyone.
