Ortiz Arbitration Hearing Set For Monday

Alex Speier reports that the arbitration hearing between the Red Sox ($12.65 million) and David Ortiz ($16 million) is scheduled for Monday. The two sides could, of course, settle before that time. The Red Sox have not gone to arbitration since 2002, when then-GM Dan Duquette could not come to an agreement with pitcher Rolando Arrojo.

Scott Atchison, who turns 36 on March 29, cleared waivers and was assigned to Pawtucket.

Evan Drellich presents an organization overview with a peek at MLB's ranking of the Red Sox's top prospects:
The first four names - and five of the first seven - on MLB.com's list of Top 20 Red Sox prospects are hitters: Will Middlebrooks (third base), Bryce Brentz (outfielder), Xander Bogaerts (shortstop), Ryan Lavarnway (catcher) and Brandon Jacobs (outfielder).
Over the Monster notes ESPN's Keith Law's ranking of the Red Sox's farm system #18 of 30.

The Truck will leave Boston this Saturday at around noon.
