|David Ortiz a no-go for Wednesday clash in St. Louis |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/6/14) A matchup in a National League park will keep Red Sox slugger David Ortiz on the bench Wednesday night. The designated hitter is set to sit in St. Louis.
His loss could certainly be felt. Ortiz has two three-run homers in the last seven games and is destined for his eighth 100-RBI season.
|David Ortiz launches 26th home run Sunday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/4/14) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz went 1 for 2 with a walk, a home run and three RBI in his team's 8-7 loss to the Yankees Sunday.
Ortiz drove in the first run of the game on a sacrifice fly in the first inning, and he added a two-run home run in the fourth to put his team up 7-4. The Yankees managed to score four runs in the fifth and sixth to take the lead for good. Ortiz has hit .252/.344/.504 with 26 home runs and 82 RBI in 393 at-bats.
|At 38 years old, David Ortiz shows no signs of slowing down. He hit .309 with 30 home runs over 137 games last season, driving in 103 runs and even stealing a career-high four bases. Ortiz boasted a .959 OPS -- the third consecutive season with a .950-plus number -- and hit 38 doubles. The downside to Ortiz, Fantasy-wise, is that he'll clog up your utility slot (the only position at which he's eligible is DH), so you lose some roster flexibility. But that exact concern actually helps lower his value to the point where Ortiz becomes a stellar bargain -- a .300 hitter with a near-certainty of 30 home runs who will still be available for a great value pick in the fifth or sixth round.
