Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz (heel) left his team's game against the New York Mets on Friday, Aug. 28, with left heel tightness in the eighth inning. Manager Torey Lovullo said they would reevaluate Ortiz before Saturday's game.
Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) could be a day-to-day proposition, meaning you will have to pay attention to the starting lineup when unveiled. It may be best to sit Ortiz for a day or two, because heel tightness can affect bat swings and running around the bases.
