David Ortiz has been activated for tonight's game.
My idea [during the rehab assignment] was to put the ball in play so I could run and see how it felt. 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 [my swing] compact. I'm old enough to know to keep it compact. But my main key was to make sure that my foot was fine.As expected, Jackie Bradley (.097/.263/.129) was optioned to Pawtucket.
John Lackey (right bicep strain) will make a rehab start for Portland on Monday.
